Run by 100% volunteers, the Greater Bucky Open, Inc. is a fundraiser golf outing with proceeds benefiting the UW Health's American Family Children's Hospital and Bucky Badger student mascots. The event is always held on a home UW football weekend and includes a variety of fun activities. The golf outing itself is not your ordinary event as we have many prizes and contests for every range of golfer; for example, we have trophies for worst shot of the day, shortest drive, and we tie up inflatable Cows to the pins on a few par 3s and have a Closest to the Cow contest. To date, 100% of donations have been passed through to our recipients!
In addition to all the fun had during the GBO weekend, we also get to visit the UW Health's American Family Children's Hospital to deliver donated toys and bring general good cheer to the children. The kids are always very excited to see Bucky and are appreciative of the toys! It is truly the highlight of the weekend and we encourage everyone to get involved however they can. Email Bucky to find out how you can help!
