32nd annual fundraiser supports youth mentoring

More than 150 golfers hit the links at Thornberry Creek at Oneida last year in support of youth mentoring at Golf For Kids’ Sake.

GREEN BAY, WI — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin (BBBSNEW) will host its 32nd annual Golf For Kids’ Sake Fundraiser on Monday, June 10, at Thornberry Creek at Oneida. Participants can enjoy 18 holes on one of Wisconsin’s finest golf courses and spend the day with friends and colleagues while supporting youth mentoring.

The traditional golf scramble begins with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. The event is sold out. More information is available online at or by calling 920-498-2227.

The event raises critical funding for BBBSNEW. All proceeds from Golf For Kids’ Sake benefit mentoring programs in Brown, Door and Shawano counties. BBBSNEW appreciates sponsorship support from: Green Bay Packers, Green Bay Packaging, WBAY-TV-2 and WIXX 101 FM.

Golfers can test their mettle on the challenging Legends course, just days before the pros hit the links for the LPGA Classic. Optional course activities include:

  • Longest drive contest for men and women.
  • Longest putt contest for men and women.
  • Flip Flop Challenge, Segway course challenge, Pet the Rescue Puppy, and more.

All participants can purchase a chance to win one of four Wisconsin experience raffles — Kohler Destination Golf Getaway, Door County Horseshoe Bay Getaway, Lake Michigan Charter Fishing Getaway and, Backyard Bash. There will also be a Hole-In-One contest to win a brand new 2019 VW Jetta from Broadway Automotive.

There will be various silent auction items and bundles featuring sports, entertainment, cuisine, wineries, breweries, health and beauty, etc.

The 2018 event drew nearly 200 golfers and volunteers who helped raise $48,000 for youth mentoring.

The event shines the light on the need for mentors. There are more than 100 children on the waiting list to be matched right now.

In the simple act of being themselves, mentors help children realize their full potential. Any adult who cares about children can become a mentor. Go to and click on Be A Big or call 920-498-2227.
