Lakewoods Forest Ridges Golf Course will be hosting the 15th Annual Saw-Bay-Ash MS Golf Benefit. This tournament has been an astounding success. The event has raised over $200,000 to help those people afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis. “Every year it astonishes me the generosity and commitment people show toward this event,” says Kathy Rasmussen, Co-Chairman, “We will again see more than 100 contributors pledge their money and services to help the benefit.”
The event is unique among high profile fund raisers, as all the money raised goes to help people located in the three county areas of Ashland, Bayfield, and Sawyer counties. “We have no overhead or organizational costs as the Ashland Memorial Medical Center administers the funds. Because of this, all the money goes to the people who need it the most, those that have MS.” The funds have helped people purchase motorized wheelchairs, accessible vehicles, ramps into homes, emergency life lines and any number of purchases which ordinary health insurance or programs leave out. “These are people who need assistance to live ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances. We help them do that,” says Bruce Claflin, an event organizer.
The event sees over 25 four-person teams from around the country compete in a scramble format for thousands of dollars in prizes, raffles and auction items. Open to anyone excited about the cause, it is a truly rewarding event. “It is because of the strong community support and efforts of the people in these three counties that we contribute the success of the event,” said Kathy Rasmussen, “but let's not forget the participants from Texas, Indiana and those who traveled from all over the Mid-West to help.”
