MILWAUKEE, Wis.—On Thursday, October 19, Team Hidalgo/Warner presented a donation of $18,000 to Fisher House Wisconsin. The contribution is a result of The Fifth Annual Hidalgo/Warner Memorial Golf Outing fundraiser hosted this past July. Over 350 participants attended the event that took place on at Western Lakes Golf Course in Pewaukee.
This was the fifth consecutive year that Team Hidalgo/Warner has partnered with Fisher House Wisconsin, and to date, Fisher House Wisconsin has received $78,472 in donations raised from the Hidalgo/Warner Memorial Golf Outing.
“Fisher House Wisconsin is humbled by the continued support from the Hidalgo/Warner Memorial Golf Outing,” said Andrew Roberts, president of Fisher House Wisconsin. “It has been said that true heroism is not the desire to achieve at any cost, but rather to serve others at any cost—we are extremely grateful for the sacrifice Army 1st Lt. Daren Hidalgo and Marine Lance Cpl. Richard ‘Rich’ Warner gave for their country and deeply appreciate how their legacy endures to serve those in need.”
The Sixth Annual Hidalgo/Warner Memorial Golf Outing is planned for Friday, July 20, 2018. Interested parties may contact email@example.com for more information. Team Hidalgo/Warner is an activity led by Wilde East Towne Honda owners.
