The Golf Classic teed off at courses throughout northeast Wisconsin: Thornberry Creek Golf Course in Green Bay, Brown County Golf Course in Oneida, and Royal St. Patrick’s Golf Links in Wrightstown. Tim Gorton, president of Families of Children with Cancer, and Cole Stoffel, founder of Cole’s Cancer Crusade and former Shopko Kick-off Kid, were featured speakers at the reception held in the Lambeau Field Atrium.“The generosity and enthusiasm surrounding the Golf Classic speaks volumes to the respect our vendors and business partners have for the Shopko Foundation and the numerous organizations we support,” said Hansen. “Year after year we have an incredible opportunity to make a difference in our Shopko communities.”Through the support of vendors and business partners, Shopko and the Shopko Foundation have raised more than $35 million to support worthy causes and organizations in Shopko communities through the Foundation’s Community Charitable Grant, Teammate Charitable Service Challenge, Green Bay Area Community Grant, and Teammate and Family Scholarship programs.last_img read more
