Golf Benefit

Join us FORE a good cause! The Friends of the Waisman Center golf benefit is a significant fundraiser for our organization—raising more than $400,000 since 1992. The proceeds from this benefit make it possible for the Friends to enhance many activities at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison that benefit individuals and families affected by developmental disabilities and neurodegenerative diseases - some of human health's most challenging conditions.

A Raffle! As usual, our raffle will feature great prizes for our participants and guests on the day of this event! Win sports tickets, golf packages, arts and entertainment excursions, etc., all worth between $100-$500+. Cost of tickets is the same as always: 1 for $5; three for $10, once around the waist for $25 OR, the best deal—twice around the waist for $40.

The Buffet and Reception: Most players come to the reception "just as they are" right after golf. The buffet will be set up in time for the first players who finish and will be replenished throughout the reception. Prizes and contest winners will be announced and the raffle drawing will begin once everyone has gone through the buffet line.

What to Wear: Shoes with soft spikes only. Shorts O.K. (but, please, no gym shorts or denim). Men should wear collared shirts.

What if it Rains? Play will go on unless storms are severe and long-lasting. If play is cancelled, the reception will still take place, and players can obtain a rain check for a round of golf.
