The 2014 Ben Marcus Memorial Variety Golf Classic was held on Monday, July 14th at Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. More than 200 people came out to support our largest fundraiser of the year, raising more than $80,000! The proceeds will benefit Variety’s Freedom Program, which provides funding for mobility and other enabling equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, ramps, communication devices, adaptive bikes and more.
Variety kids, Waylan and Amanda, were the Guests of Honor and spoke about how Variety has made an impact on their lives. Everyone hit the links knowing that they day was about more than a great round of golf-it was about helping kids with physical disabilities.
The evening reception was sizzling hot with two food stations showcasing Grand Geneva’s restaurants. With the theme song of “Rocky” dramatically playing in the background, The Brissago and ChopHouse chefs marched onto the competing floor and went head to head for the People’s Choice championship title. This year, ChopHouse took the victory, beating the defending champion from last year’s competition. The two restaurants are now tied with one win each. Make sure to join us next year on Monday, July 20th, 2015 for the ultimate tie breaker!
