A golf outing and raffle for Violence Intervention Project of Algoma this Saturday (Sept. 14) comes as the women’s shelter grapples with damage from a recent storm, a Kewaunee County Board supervisor and VIP board member said last month.
“It’s one of our fundraisers that we’re really counting on making a lot of money,” Supervisor Virginia Haske told the board. “When we had the last major rainstorm, it did a great deal of damage that was not covered by our insurance company, and they have a lot of bills they have to pay.
The second annual VIP Golf Outing features golf at Alaskan Golf Course, a silent auction, and chicken dinner. Registration is $60 per player and includes nine holes, cart and the dinner.
All proceeds go to The Violence Intervention Project, a nonprofit organization that provides support services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Kewaunee County. For information on how to register, contact VIP at 920-487-2111.
The organization is also selling $5 raffle tickets around the community for a handmade wooden deck cooler.
“One of the volunteers has taken a cooler and built a beautiful wooden chest around the cooler, and then it’s also going to be filled with donations from local beverage establishments,” Supervisor Mary Dobbins said. The drawing is expected around 3 p.m.
