Greater Bucky Open September 26, 2004
Thanks to all for making the GBO 2004 a wonderful success! Our little 8 year old GBO is slowing becoming a mature event and is beginning to attract big time sponsors, a sell out crowd of entertaining golfers, great prizes, fun stories, and best of all; we are really making a difference for the UW Children's Hospital and Bucky Badger student mascots. We donated $10,000 this year, up from $5000 last year, which continues our trend of doubling our annual donation for the last 4 consecutive years. I guess that makes 2005's goal $20k. D'Oh! (We will do it.) Thanks again to our generous sponsors…please support them so they continue to support us!
On Friday we had a great visit to the UWCH with our annual toy donation trip with Bucky, the football players, local press, and GBO staff. The smiles on these kids faces are truly priceless and parents and patients really do appreciate the gifts people donate…special thanks to Bill Sinacore from LeapFrog and Jill Woods from Disney for making significant toy contributions once again.
In the spirit of working hard AND playing hard, Friday night we continued the GBO weekend with our annual trip to the Essen Haus for a little polka dancing, a few boots of beer and plenty of bratwursts.
Saturday's UW football game was a thing of beauty…the newly renovated Camp Randall is awesome, the weather was perfect and the Badger football squad put on a good show by thumping Penn State. Thanks to the Stadium Bar for providing pre & post game GBO designated areas for us to celebrate…check out our new GBO banner thanks to Signature Graphics!
Sunday's GBO was so much fun! Bergstrom donated an H2 Hummer giveaway for a hole in one prize…unfortunately none of us sank it but it was definitely fun trying.
All 6 of the current Buckys were in attendance, the UW tuba section walked the course, there were great prizes and raffle items, and an entertaining group of GBO gophers.
Congratulations to this year's winning foursome of Nick McDonough, Guy Holmes, Rob Peters and Dirk Todd who shot an impressive 14 under. They now have their names inscribed on the GBO BUCKY BOWL traveling trophy for them to enjoy this year.
This year we started a Super Sponsor traveling trophy going to the biggest cash contributor of the GBO and this year's recipient was Racine Danish Kringle…not sure if you ever tasted their kringle but it is dangerously addicting. Thanks again to all sponsors!
