The University of Wisconsin-Madison dairy science department will hold
its annual Dairy Science Golf Classic fundraising event on Wednesday,
May 19 at the Bridges Golf Course in Madison.
The Golf Classic uses a scramble format, where each team member plays
the ball closest to the hole after each shot. The event is open to the
public. A registration fee of $100 per golfer pays for 18 holes of
golf, cart rental, free lunch and lots of prizes. Pre-registration is
advised, but day-of-event registrations will be accepted.
All proceeds support the dairy science department”s scholarships and
dairy judging and dairy challenge teams. Last years outing raised
nearly $30,000 for those programs.
“It”s a great way to socialize and have fun, but more importantly, the
event benefits our students. This is an opportunity to invest in the
future of the dairy industry,” says Ric Grummer, dairy science
Sponsorships are encouraged. Individuals or companies can support the
event at one of three levels: “Legacy” ($5,000, enough to fund a full
scholarship), “Chancellor”s Club” ($2,500), or “Dean”s Club” ($1,000),
Another option is to sponsor a hole for $250 or $600 (the latter
includes a team registration for four golfers).
There will be both a silent and live auction, featuring a variety of
dairy-related items and sports memorabilia. Donations of auction items
are welcome. Items should have a minimum real value of $25 for the
silent auction and $100 for the live auction.
Contributions beyond the actual cost of the golf or any auction item
are tax deductible as allowed by law.
