Wrapping up on the course just before a torrential rainfall, the 2018 ProAct Golf Classic fundraiser at Southview Country Club in West St. Paul entertained 126 golfers, closing with a gourmet dinner, silent and live auctions. A team from InboxDollars in Mendota Heights took first place, with a score of 54, or 17 under par. From left are: Dr. Dustin Carlson, Mike Murzyn, Turtle Mishek and Dan Mishek. ProAct is a nonprofit based in Eagan that serves individuals with disabilities.

Ways that you can help ProAct and benefit your business:
- Donate to the silent/live auction and promote your business with service offerings, or unique items of significant value that you sell or produce. Provide tickets for sporting events, movies, cultural offerings, etc. Check donations are also accepted.
- Attend the golf tournament as an employee appreciation event or a customer appreciation outing. Since golfing is positive in building relationships, consider how this event could enhance relations with current and future clients.
- Sponsor the event, lunch or dinner, or have a designated hole sponsored by your company. Major sponsorships include entree fees for multiple golfers.
