Cambria, Wis., Aug. 1, 2013 – This year the Old Mill Foundation Golf Outing set a new record, raising more than $15,000 for the foundation. The event also saw its first hole-in-one contest winner, Al Ogorzalek of New Berlin, Wis. He hit a hole-in-one on the Ballweg Implement-sponsored hole 10 to win a John Deere XUV550 S4 Gator.
Didion Milling hosted the seventh annual golf outing on July 26. The four-person scramble took place at Fox Lake Golf Club in Fox Lake, Wis. All proceeds benefitted the Old Mill Foundation.

Cambria Fire Department, Cambria-Friesland School, Cambria-Friesland Youth Football Team and the Cambria Pool Fun Committee are a few such organizations that have benefited from the Old Mill Foundation’s numerous donations and scholarships.
