Children’s Wisconsin was the beneficiary of a major fundraising event recently led by ORBIS® Corporation. The international leader in reusable packaging, successfully hosted its third annual ORBIS Good Days for Kids golf outing. The successful event raised an impressive $330,000 for the Children’s Wisconsin Pediatric Simulation and Resuscitation Program. As the region’s only independent healthcare system dedicated to the well-being of children, Children’s Wisconsin plays a vital role in delivering essential services for the community’s young ones. The fundraiser took place on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at the picturesque Grand Geneva golf course in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Reflecting on the event’s success, Norm Kukuk, President of ORBIS Corporation, expressed his admiration for Children’s Wisconsin and the impact it has made over the past century. He stated, “At ORBIS, we are extremely proud to support this vital mission. The impact Children’s Wisconsin has on families is profound, and we are grateful to be part of their journey. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our dedicated suppliers for joining forces with us to raise these crucial funds.”
Since its inception, the ORBIS Good Days for Kids golf outing has raised an astounding $750,000 for the Pediatric Simulation and Resuscitation Program. This program provides highly realistic simulation-based education, supporting the training of medical professionals from across the nation.
