Milwaukee, WI, August 1, 2013 – Today, more people than ever are living in the aftermath of a severe burn. Of the nearly 500,000 people a year who suffer a burn injury, more than 90 percent survive. But their journey doesn't end when their physical wounds heal.
For 25 years, the Burn Center Golf Invitational has been raising money to help those burn survivors in need. Since 1989, the Burn Center Golf Invitational has been supporting Columbia St. Mary's Regional Burn Center, the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety’s Summer Camp for Burn Injured Youth and other burn-injury prevention and education programs. That’s 25 years of raising money, building awareness and providing education – 25 years of giving burn survivors hope.
Over these years, we've been able to raise a lot of money and help a lot of people. And this year, we hope to hit a major milestone by surpassing $2 million in total revenue raised. That's a staggering figure that has helped improve the lives of a countless number of burn survivors.
Golfers will tee off on August 26, 2013 at the lavish Grand Geneva Resort & Spa. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our sponsors for helping make this event such a success.
