The annual Nebraska Golf Classic -- a solid fundraising event for the past decade – again roped in significant support to the Nebraska Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
More than 600 guests mingled at the opening banquet, which was held at the Embassy Suites LaVista and began with a VIP reception. The evening also included silent and live auctions and a keynote address by former Husker and current Detroit Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh.
Quarry Oaks in Ashland hosted the event, and, as usual, the course was in perfect condition. Auction winners were awarded their prizes at the 11th hole and massages were available after everyone’s rounds. Golfers enjoyed Omaha Steaks hot dogs, and Bonefish crabcakes and shrimp while playing on the picturesque course.
Thanks go out to TD Ameritrade and Travel & Transport, the two primary sponsors of the event, and to co-chairs Sam Tynan and Matt Hickey.
