19th Annual MVMF Golf Classic makes a record in contributions!
The 2013 Champions are NEW this year with a winning low score of 53. They are: Karl Omdahl, Dr. Matt Kruse, Dr. Brent Born, and Dr. Laird Goodman, great supporters of the Golf Classic and the MVMF. Congratulations and thank you for your support.
In 2013 there were 4 competing classes for the Jim Libby Class Trophy. The trophy was renamed in 2010 to honor Dr. Jim Libby, the first MVMF Golf Committee chairperson and longtime MVMF supporter.
Competing class foursomes were 1967, 1970, 1983, 1985. We have filled up one trophy with their names and are working on a second! Will someone beat the Class of 1985?! Congratulations once again Class of 1985; Dr. George Theisen, Dr. Jim Winsor, Dr. Tim Krienke, Dr. Kirk Smith! The MVMF challenges all classes to put together a foursome and compete to become a NEW foursome on the traveling trophy. It is a great way to make an annual tradition and reunion out of supporting the MVMF! These classmates have perfected how to have fun while they Tee it Up!

Foursomes consisting entirely of senior golfers (age 60 and over) competed for the 8th year for the traveling “Brandjord Memorial Trophy” established in tribute to Dr. Steve Brandjord, MVM Foundation Golf Committee chair from 1999-2003. Congratulations to our senior golfers and the Class of 1970!

Again this year we awarded the Top Women’s Team – the team with the lowest score comprised all of women golfers. We had only two completely women golf teams BUT – 31 women golfers. The TOP women’s team was from New Ulm Regional Veterinary Center; Stacy Hillesheim, Dr. Sue Chapman, Melissa Bauer, and Denise Kuester. Congratulations. Let’s get more foursomes of women golfers in 2014.

Thank You to MVMF Golf Sponsors! Please Support our Sponsors
The 19th Annual Golf Classic was one of our most successful golf classic fundraisers. The hardworking committee members together with 81 generous sponsors helped our committee exceed their GOAL of $43,000 for a fourth year by raising $47,125 in sponsorship dollars. This helps fund the total of $82,500 in award contributions given out in 2013 for scholarships and non-scholarship grants. In 2013 we are BOLDLY recognizing those sponsors which support the MVMF at our two fundraising events each year; the Golf Classic and Clay Shoot. Those BOLD “Double Birdie” sponsors support allow the MVMF to step up support too!
These sponsors deserve your support, please thank them and support them. They support the future of the veterinary profession.
On the course, at the MVMF Golf Classic, we continue to fundraise – thank you to all attendees who increase their chances at getting on the trophy by donating to our Mulligans, Buy a Putts, and ruler pot! The MVMF even found three young fundraisers at a lemonade stand, with lemonade donated by the Refuge, thank you for donating $270 to quench your thirst! It all adds up and it’s looking like one of our most successful events ever!
