Swinging for a Good Cause

By Liz Keuler


Practice your swing and make a difference at the 5th annual Scholarship Golf Classic on Monday, June 17th at North Shore Country Club, benefitting the RCM Scholarship Fund!


The RCM Scholarship Fund allows students with financial need to pursue higher education, and includes mentoring support and study skills training.  The program currently supports sixteen college students and will be awarding new scholarships soon.


Golf as an individual for $250, or bring a foursome for $1,000. The outing includes a buffet lunch prior to the 12:30 shotgun start. If you’re not a golfer, join us for an open-bar cocktail hour, dinner and the Silent and Live Auctions for only $50 per person.  Thanks to Rotarians’ generous donations, we will have a bigger, better Wine Pull this year – just $20 a cork and you are guaranteed to go home with a bottle!  


We’re expecting some intense bidding wars as we’ve already got a bunch of fabulous auction items lined up. You could: treat your 9 best friends to a chef-prepared 7 course meal paired with wine at the Pfister; get away to Florida on a 2-night stay in a Disney timeshare with 4 passes to Disneyworld; throw a party for 25 at the Grohmann museum with hors d’oeuvres and full bar; strut your stuff in a full length mink coat; cheer on the Milwaukee Brewers from premium seats above the dugout; relax in Fort Meyers, Florida with a 7-night condo stay; or receive real VIP Rotary treatment with Tuesday rights to Mary’s parking spot in the War Memorial covered lot!


And of course, we are always looking for unique auction items. Email golf@milwaukeerotary.com with ideas.


We’d also like to thank our 2013 Scholarship Golf Classic event sponsors: We Energies, GenMet, Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek, R&R Insurance, Bottom Line Marketing, Associated Bank, von Briesen & Roper, Park Bank and North Shore Bank. Thanks also to our hole sponsors: A.O.
