Golfers tee off to benefit Aspirus Medford patients

Aspirus Medford Foundation silent auction prizes

The Aspirus Medford Foundation’s charitable golf tournament and fundraising event on August 11 helped raise funds that will be used to heal people, promote health and strengthen the communities Aspirus Medford serves.

“Over $20,000 was raised,” said Brent Arndt, Aspirus Medford Foundation board director and annual event co-chairperson. “Our major sponsors helped make that a reality, in addition to twenty-eight golf teams, volunteers who assisted and over 130 businesses who contributed.”

Findorff was the Event Sponsor along with eleven other platinum sponsors: AbbyBank; Canteen Vending & Refreshment Services (Oshkosh); Marathon Cheese Corporation; Medford Cooperative, Inc.; Nestle Pizza Division; Nicolet National Bank; Perrin’s Surface Solutions LLC; Phillips–Medisize Medford; Pieper Power / Systems Technologies (Merrill); Sierra Pacific Foundation; and Weather Shield Windows & Doors. Forward Bank was a gold sponsor. The generous contributions of these sponsors help to ensure patients of Aspirus Medford Hospital & Clinics continue to have access to state-of-the-art medical equipment and compassionate care.

The beautiful day was interrupted by a tornado warning and torrential rain, which necessitated the cancellation of the tournament after one round of golf. Results as determined by Blind Flighting are as follows:
