The Father Dodge Council 7827 in Woodruff held its inaugural Wounded Warriors benefit at Trout Lake Saturday, June 14, with all of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors.

Between $6,000 and $7,000 was raised after expenses.

The day’s events began with the American Legion Post 89 performing a flag ceremony with the playing of “Taps,” followed by a prayer by fellow Knight Deacon Mike Harvey from Holy Family Catholic Church.

An 18-hole scramble, with several fun hole events was held. This included two nuns from Marywood dressed as clowns, a hole where everyone hit their drives blindfolded and a chipping hole into a circle. Box lunches were also delivered to everyone by the Trout Lake Golf Club.

Winners of the scramble was the team of Dave Cook, Tim Carlson, Kurt Blasier, and Kevin Geiger, who blew away the competition with a score of 59. They received a trophy plaque made by Laser Innovations and a cash prize, which was donated back to Wounded Warriors.

Hole sponsors raised more than $5,000, thanks to Clark Henry. 

The balance was raised by the golfers who weathered the rain and mosquitoes. Door prizes were also donated by individuals and area businesses.

After the success of the initial Wounded Warriors tournament it was decided that the Father Dodge Knights of Columbus will make this an annual event at Trout Lake Golf Club.
