Wisconsin Golf Outing

What a success!  Our first annual charity golf outing, Together We Can Make a Difference.  We had an incredible day with 56 golfers and 78 degree weather.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day to have a charity golf outing.

You can’t always put into words what you experience but I believe these two situations sum up the heart of the golf outing.

1.       Unknown to those running the outing, Mike Grau from PCI Construction bought Ben and Ron Tagtow $20 of 50/50 raffle tickets, so that they had a chance at winning the money. Their number didn’t get chosen but then….

2.       Rob Gudates, from Philadelphia Insurance who won the 50/50 raffle, (which was $500) gave his winning portion back to the family.  The crowd erupted, applauding his generosity.

This year’s recipients of the Charity Golf Outing went to a family from Robertson Ryan & Associates; Pete, Shelly, Ron and Ben Tagtow.  Shelly has worked at Robertson Ryan for 13 years and just recently found out both Ron and Ben has type-1 childhood diabetes.  Your donations will allow us to give the family $1,500, to help to ease the stress of medical bills.

The Wisconsin Home Nest wants to extend a heart-felt thank you for your commitment to making this event so successful and we hope you will be able to support us again next year.

Tonight the Ocean State Puddle held its first golf outing and we were thrilled with the results. 73 golfers, 84 for dinner, and close to 20 twenty corporate sponsors. We raised quite a bit for charity throughout the year. It was great to see that all six Puddle officers were there, plus officers from Hartford and Bay State.

The Indianapolis Puddle had a door busting turn out for our initial meeting. We were fortunate to ceremonially induct thirty-two new members that evening and have additional members already planning their induction for our next meeting in October. We are already planning a charitable event in December for an Indy Fuel hockey game and have a charity golf event in the works for July 2016. Congratulations to our newly elected board members who are diligently working on getting everything set up:

Larry Lubs – loyal gander
Scott Jones – supervisor of the flock
Amanda Terrell – custodian of the flock
Pamela Glass – wielder of the goose quill
Jeannene Talbott – keeper of the golden goose egg
Kim Roudebush – guardian of the flock

And the committee chairs who are already busy working on upcoming plans and activities:

Steve Buck
Allen Keen
Kim Falcon
Andrea Perry

A BIG thanks to Randall Wilson, Kim Bilbrey and Steven Ettinger and all of our surrounding ponds for the support they continue to provide as we build and organize our puddle here in Indianapolis! We are looking forward to a wonderful finish to 2015 and an exciting new start in 2016!

THANK YOU!

Goslings and Ganders,

We want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make our 3rd Monte Carlo a huge success. As you can see from the photo, we were able to donate $7500.00 to Kilee and her family. They spent the night with us and truly enjoyed themselves. This large event could not be possible without the support of our generous vendor sponsors. Thank you all so much!! We hope that you all had as much fun as we did. We welcome any feedback that you would like to give. Please feel free to email us your thoughts and suggestions to make next years event even better.

Your Cincinnati Blue Goose Board,

Janice Folzenlogen, Loyal Gander
Kyle Schuppie, Supervisor of the Flock
Wende Goetz, Keeper of the Golden Goose Egg
Carrie Miller, Wielder of the Golden Goose Quill
Jason Chavarria, Guardian of the Flock
