The Door County Community Foundation and Horseshoe Bay Golf Club were announce the inaugural Bill Boettcher Dinner and Golf Event raised approximately $17,000 for the charities of Door County.
“Charity is more important to Door County than any other community in Wisconsin,” said Community Foundation President & CEO Bret Bicoy at the sold-out dinner on July 21. “Our arts and environmental charities are the major reason 2 million people visit here and come back year after year. And our human service and healthcare charities alleviate the stresses on families that result from the seasonal nature of our economy.”
The event took place over two days with an elegant five-course gourmet dinner on Sunday and a Pinehurst Shamble golf event on Monday.
The Bill Boettcher Dinner and Golf Event originally was the idea of the Horseshoe Bay Golf Club whose members wanted to give back to the Door County Community. The Chairman of the Club’s Executive Committee, Glenn Timmerman, approached the Community Foundation with the idea of hosting an event.
“This event is a real partnership between Horseshoe Bay and the Community Foundation,” says Bill Boettcher, a charter member of the Golf Club and a founding director of the Community Foundation. “It’s a way for us to give back to the community we love.”
