COLFAX — The Whitetail Ladies’ Golf League has donated the 2018 collection for “Change for Charity” to the Colfax Public Library.
The Monday night golf league collects money throughout the season, said Tammy Briggs, president of the Whitetail Ladies’ Golf League.
Some players also donate their winnings at the end of the season, she noted.
The last-place team at the end of the season decides where the money should go, Briggs said.
Each team has at least four players, and last year there were 11 teams with 60 women who played in the league.
The last-place team last year was called The Buck Buddies, and team captain was Laura Dombrowski.
The Buck Buddies selected the Colfax Public Library to receive a check for $200 because the library has so many wonderful programs and activities for kids and for the community, Briggs said.
In addition to Briggs as president, the Whitetail Ladies’ Golf League officers include Jackie Plaszcz as vice-president; April Nichols as secretary; and Tammy Simon as treasurer.
Briggs said she wanted to acknowledge Bobbi Jo Miller, owner of the Whitetail Golf Course.
“She does so much to get the league going,” she said.
Lisa Bragg-Hurlburt, the director of the Colfax Public Library, was unable to be at the Whitetail Golf Course on April 8 for a photograph with the officers of the Ladies’ Golf League.
When asked later on what she planned to do with the money, Hurlburt said she was going to put it in the elevator project fund.
The village has set up a designated fund for the elevator project, which means the money can only be spent on the elevator project.
By going toward the elevator, the money “will benefit children by helping to create more programming space in the basement,” Hurlburt said.
The Colfax Village Board has authorized an elevator committee, which includes Hurlburt; Krista Ottinger, the president of the library board; Margaret Burcham, village board trustee; representatives for the Colfax Commercial Club, the Colfax Municipal Building Restoration Group, and the Colfax Woman’s Club, to raise money for the project to install an elevator at the Colfax Municipal Building.
