Golf Benefit

27th Annual Golf Benefit, Monday, July 15, 2019 at Bishops Bay Country Club

Join us FORE a good cause! The Friends of the Waisman Center golf benefit is a significant fundraiser for our organization—raising more than $680,000 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.

MULLIGANS: One mulligan per golfer; $15 each.


  • Raffle & Silent Auction: The raffle and silent auction will feature great prize packages worth between $300-$1,000+!
    Raffle tickets are: 1 for $5; 5 for $10; 20 for $20 OR, the best deal—50 tickets for $40.
  • Marshmallow Shot 50/50 Raffle: How far can you hit a marshmallow off a tee? Here’s your chance to find out.
    Marshmallows are 2 for $20 and includes an entry into the 50/50 raffle. Each marshmallow you hit beyond the designated line increases your chances of winning. There will be a special prize for the longest distance.

Golfers can win prizes in a number of flag events and the top teams will receive gift certificates to the Bishops Bay Pro Shop.

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 drawings will begin once everyone has gone through the buffet line. Invite guests to join us for the reception! Reception-only tickets are $30 each. Please RSVP with reception guest names by July 12, 2019.
