For the City Times
Representing Skyward, the winning team of the Plover Veterans of Foreign Wars 12th Annual Mike Helgert Memorial Golf Scramble, held on Sept. 10, was awarded an artillery shell-styled traveling trophy in a ceremony at the Post.
Team members’ names will be engraved on the trophy and include Nick Cappotto, Ben Lind, Rick King and Jerry Lind. Each member also received a set of golf balls.
Undeterred by intermittent rain squalls throughout the afternoon, 25 teams participated in the fundraising event, held at Wisconsin River Golf Club. The event also featured a banquet dinner and basket raffles.
Funds raised will be used for local area veteran needs, community support and ongoing support of the Fisher House, a “home away from home” for military and veterans’ families when a loved one is hospitalized, at Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee.
