WPA to Host 16th Annual Golf Outing

Pork producers, allied industry representatives, and friends of the pork industry are invited to participate in the Wisconsin Pork Association’s (WPA) 16th Annual Pork Classic golf outing.  The event will take place on September 2nd at Christmas Mountain Village, Wisconsin Dells, Wisc.

Check in, lunch and practice tee will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15.  The four-person scramble tournament will begin at 12:30 p.m. with a shotgun start.  A reception will be held beginning at 5, followed by dinner.

WPA plans this outing for the purpose of allowing pork industry professionals to network, and to raise revenues to support advocacy and legislative activities on behalf of the Wisconsin pork industry.

The tournament will be a four-person scramble format.  Team registration is $380, or individuals can sign-up for $95 and you will be assigned to a team.  The fee includes 18 holes of golf, cart, lunch, dinner, and hole and team prizes. Hole in one prizes, including a chance to win $10,000 cash, will be available!

Hole, meal, prize and other sponsorship packages are also available starting at $100. The following sponsors have already pledged their support for the 2015 Pork Classic: DeWitt Ross & Stevens; Elanco Animal Health; Johnsonville Sausage; Lynch Livestock, Inc; National Pork Producers Council; and Rural Mutual Insurance. If your company would like more information on donating prizes or participating as a sponsor, contact the WPA office.

Don’t worry about whether you are an old pro on the course or just a “once in a while putter”, WPA will look forward to having you participate in the 2015 Pork Classic!
