The 10th Annual Doug Kwiatkowski Memorial Golf Outing held on Saturday, July 26 at Hunter 's Glen Golf Course, Crivitz, was again a huge success with over 80 sponsors, dozens of volunteers, and 49 golfers taking part.
The Douglas Kwiatkowski Memorial Foundation will again provide new youth scholarships to 2015 graduates in Crivitz and Wausaukee.
The 2014 scholarship recipients, Cody Bates of Crivitz and Hope Young of Wausaukee, as well continuing scholars, Cody Wolf, Logan Gruszynski, Brook Wickman and Kate Morrison were in attendance at the event.
The Foundation will continue to provide sponsorships of youth activities in Crivitz and Wausaukee in the coming year. The Crivitz Area Food Pantry was recognized as the 2014 Outstanding Youth Service for their exemplary service to students in the Crivitz School District through their Backpack Buddy Program, which provides healthy snacks and other food items for the weekend for students and families in need. Marge Banaszak received a check for $250 following the outing and the Foundation provided an additional donation of $250 to the Pantry following a winter fundraising event still in planning. The funds are hoped to be helpful in the effort to establish regular food distribution site in the Crivitz Schools. Over the past nine years, the Foundation has also made contributions to the Stacy and Zach Franzmeier family, the CESA 8 Victory Olympics, Crivitz High School Science Club, Twin Bridge Waterski Team, Crivitz Youth Football, Crivitz High School Band, Crivitz High School Golf program, Crivitz Ski-Cats, Faith Presbyterian Youth Group, Crivitz Youth Baseball, Amberg Area Food Pantry, families of Children with Cancer, Habitat for Humanity, and to number of homeless service agencies, as well for providing emergency assistance to families in crisis in the northeastern Wisconsin area communities.
