The 28th annual Sauk Prairie Healthcare Foundation golf outing on Wednesday, June 26 truly rocked. The event sold out, with all golfer spots filled. According to Todd Wuerger, Executive Director of the Foundation, “It was a hot day, but that’s better than the alternative. We had a Rock ‘n Roll theme and there are some great photos of our participants. It was also a chance for us to highlight the Foundation and talk about how we allocate the money we raise. We went over our goal for the event, so that speaks to the generosity of this community. We thank everyone involved.”
Foundation board member Dr. Janelle Hupp gave a presentation about one of the programs the Foundation supports — mental health first aid training. She described how one of her patients took the class and was able to intervene and prevent a potential suicide. Dr. Hupp also established a “Med Staff Match” for the outing, whereby she and 10 of her colleagues matched funds donated to the Foundation during the event.
