CAMBRIA, Wis., August 6, 2014 – The eighth annual Old Mill Foundation Golf Outing raised a record $18,000 in donations this year, surpassing the previous record by almost $3,000.
The four-person scrabble took place July 25th at the Fox Lake Golf Club in Fox Lake, Wis. Didion Milling has hosted this event since its inception in 2008. The golf outing has raised more than $80,000 over the past eight years. All proceeds from the event benefit the Old Mill Foundation.
“The mission of the Old Mill Foundation is to support the Cambria area community,” said John Didion, chief executive officer of Didion Milling and president of the Old Mill Foundation. “It is an opportunity and a privilege to help enrich the community we do business in.”
Founded in 2006, the Old Mill Foundation contributes to the Cambria area community through support of local nonprofit organizations that work to enhance the lives of the Village of Cambria, Township of Courtland and the Cambria-Friesland School District. Many organizations benefit from the Old Mill Foundation’s numerous donations and scholarships: Cambria-Friesland School, Cambria Fire Department, Cambria-Friesland baseball, softball and youth football teams and the Cambria-Friesland Historical Society to name a few.
“This event gets bigger and better every year,” Brenda Oft, event coordinator and Didion Milling grain merchandiser, said. “It is heart warming to see such wonderful support from the community and Didion vendors.”
