Another Ice Tee Classic has come and gone. The event, designed to raise awareness for the services that TNP provides, could not have been possible without its generous sponsor - UMR. The event's 22nd year was held on January 28 in conjunction with the Wausau Events WinterFest 2017. 'Cool' fun was had by all.
Held in Yawkey Park, behind the Woodson YMCA, families playfully putted tennis balls around the mini-golf course hosted by area high-school groups. Despite poor snow quality, D.C. Everest FBLA's (Future Business Leaders of America) "Up" and Newman Catholic National Honor Society's "Team USA" holes charmed kids and adults alike. In addition to golf, participants were able to vote for their favorite hole on a ballot that also doubled as a prize-drawing entry. In a thrilling result, the people's choice for favorite hole was a tie - congratulations to both student groups!
Ice Tee golfers were thrilled to be notified they were drawing-winners of either a movie night package donated by Family Video, a gift bag donated by Politio's Pizza , or a gift card donated by Wausau on the Water (WOW). The Neighbors' Place is thankful to everyone - sponsors, hole hosts, volunteers, and, most importantly, the golfers - who made Ice Tee Classic 2017 possible.
