Murrock, is currently a quadriplegic, but is making progress. His goal is to walk again, and proceeds from the benefit will help Eric move closer to his goal.

• Pink Classic Debuts at Horseshoe Bay

The Pink Classic Golf Event will be held on Sunday, June 5 at Horseshoe Bay Golf Course in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin.

The event includes a four-person golf scramble with registration beginning at 8 am and a shotgun start at 9 am. At 1:30 pm guests will gather at the clubhouse for live music by Big Mouth Band featuring the Power Tool Horns, food and drinks, a raffle and live auction.

Funds raised at the event support the Sue Baldwin Fund and the Wellness Center of Door County. In honor of her mother’s 10-year breast cancer remission, Carrie Baldwin-Smith created the Pink Classic and subsequent Sue Baldwin Fund. “I wanted to do something to make a difference and have an impact on a disease that has touched so many people.”

The Sue Baldwin Fund provides breast cancer awareness, education and care for Door County residents who may be underinsured. “When starting this, I talked it over with my mom, and we decided it was money that was going to be raised locally and that it needed to stay locally,” said Baldwin-Smith.

The Wellness Center of Door County, a community based nonprofit health care provider, provides needed reproductive and related health care for both men and women. The Wellness Center established the Sue Baldwin Fund and facilitates funding for diagnostic evaluation of breast lumps for uninsured or under-insured persons.

The first Pink Classic was held in 2007 and raised over $21,000; in 2008 it netted over $15,000. Baldwin-Smith says this year’s goal is “to raise $25,000 and make our community aware of the assistance that is out there for them.”

Hole sponsorships are available for $250. Sponsors’ names are embroidered on hole flags and after the event the sponsor can display them at their place of business.

The cost is $125 per person or $500 for a team of four. The public is welcome to attend the afternoon festivities after the golf at 1:30 pm for $20 per person.

To sign up your foursome or for more info, contact Carrie Baldwin-Smith at 920.839.1114, visit, or email [email protected].
