The 11th annual Didion Golf Outing raised more than $50,000 for the Old Mill Foundation, surpassing last year’s record by nearly $15,000.
This year’s event took place on Sept. 28 at The Oaks Golf Course in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin, with 120 golfers representing 37 different companies. Since its inception in 2008, this annual outing has raised more than $180,000 for the Old Mill Foundation. This year, the proceeds will go to the Foundation’s Benefit Fund supporting employees, families and emergency personnel affected by the May 31 events at Didion’s Cambria facility.
“We are truly blessed to be surrounded by such a caring community,” said Riley Didion, president of Didion Milling. “It’s because of their support that this event gets bigger and better every year.”
Founded in 2006, The Old Mill Foundation gives back to the Cambria-Friesland community through support of local nonprofit organizations which work to enhance the lives of residents in the Village of Cambria, Township of Courtland, and the Cambria-Friesland School District. Every year, the Foundation awards grants that strengthen education, community, the environment, literacy, and other enrichment efforts in the Cambria-Friesland area.
