Last Call for Golf Registrations and Sponsorships



Lunch and social hour sponsorship opportunities still available Missed getting a team signed up for this year’s Department of Dairy Science’s Dave Dickson Memorial Golf Classic?  Starting to get spring fever with the warmer temperatures and greening lawns all around us? You are in luck!  Spots for two additional teams opened up this week and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  The golf outing is next Wednesday, May 21 at the University Ridge 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 $120 per golfer pays for 18 holes of golf, cart rental, free lunch and lots of prizes. 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. Individuals or companies can still support the event through a sponsorship or donation.  A lunch sponsorship for $2000 is available and comes with special event signage and a golf foursome. A social sponsor for $600 that includes special event signage is also still being sought. There will be both a silent and live auction, featuring a variety of dairy-related items and sports memorabilia. Auction items can be viewed at under either the alumni or donor tabs. Contributions beyond the actual cost of the golf or any auction item are tax deductible, as allowed by law. Don’t delay!
