$1,000,000 Shoot Out Charity Golf Outing

Monday, August 4, 2014
Shot gun start, scramble format
Maple Bluff Country Club
500 Kensington Dr., Madison

Not only did this year’s Million Dollar Shootout, on August 4 at Maple Bluff Country Club, feature Pat Richter and Paul Braun, it also featured 1.74 inches of rain! Golfers played about nine holes of golf before the skies opened up and weather conditions required play to be cancelled.

Golfers dried off and came inside to enjoy dinner, a silent auction and remarks by former UW Athletic Director Pat Richter, answering questions from the audience about his playing days and offering his insights on prevention of head injuries, from youth football to the NFL.

Paul Braun, best known as commentator for Wisconsin Badger Hockey, told his Alzheimer’s story, which he is currently living with his wife, Karen. Paul spoke of the sheer numbers of people impacted by AD in Wisconsin, likening it to sell-out crowds at Lambeau Field and Miller Park combined. He stressed the importance of supporting caregivers and not being afraid to visit friends and family with Alzheimer’s disease. You can watch his full presentation below.

Thanks to all participants and sponsors, the event raised close to $40,000. All proceeds stay in Wisconsin to support people facing a dementia-type disease and their care partners.
