VIP’s 19th Annual Golf Outing – Monday, June 12th

The VIP Services 19th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 12th, presented by Kikkoman Foods, Inc. and the Kikkoman Foods Foundation, Course sponsor Aldridge Electric, Dinner sponsor Tankcraft Corporation / Plasticraft Corporation and Lunch sponsor MPC, Inc., was a tremendous success netting over $100,000! 

Welcoming the golfers to the magnificent course at Big Foot Country Club in Fontana at the shot-gun start were co-chairs Cherie Ackman and Bob Putnam. The day concluded with a program and special remarks by Executive Director Cindy Simonsen, Board President Donna Neshek and VIP Ambassador Tammie Steinert.  Funds were raised through sponsorships, participant entry fees, loud and silent auctions, raffle ticket sales, and a wine and spirit pull.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, golfers, prize and wine donors, volunteers and committees members.  Their incredible generosity of time, talent and treasure allows VIP to provide programs and services for people with disabilities in Walworth County.
