STEM Forward held its largest golf outing yet at the 7th Annual Invitational on August 16, 2012 at the Muskego Lakes Country Club. Over 80 golfers joined us on a gorgeous Tuesday in support of STEM. In addition to the scholarship funds, we raised approximately $9,000 in support of STEM programming serving the greater Milwaukee area.
Golfers participated in a Hole-in-One competition featuring an all expenses paid trip for two to Maui and a putting competition. They had the opportunity to win a number of fantastic door prizes like a Corey Hart signed baseball, a $50 gift certificate to a Surg restaurant, Milwaukee Admirals Tickets, or a New Glarus Brewing gift set.
New this year we offered a silent auction that had a collection of outstanding items like a Brewers Basket gift set donated by Joy Global, a Time Warner Cable package, a Packers signed football, or a Wine and Cheese gift basket donated by Adecco Technical & Engineering.
Two of our 2012 scholarship winners, Jesse DePinto and Anthony Leondardelli, joined us at lunch to talk about their education and future STEM career plans. We wish them the best of luck as they continue along their STEM career paths!
Thank you to our sponsors, our golf committee, and all of our golfers for another fantastic invitational! We look forward to seeing you next year on Friday, August 16, 2013 at the Muskego Lakes Country Club.
