Annual Event Raises Funds for Alzheimer’s Research
MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Marshfield Insurance’s popular golf event “Fore Roger” is scheduled to return on Friday, July 15, 2022 at RiverEdge Golf Course in Marshfield. Fore Roger is held annually in honor of Marshfield Insurance founder Roger Arnoldy, who passed away in 2012 from Lewy Body Dementia. His son Nick now carries on the Marshfield Insurance legacy as President/CEO.
Proceeds from “Fore Roger” go towards a Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation fund to assist families affected with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, provide capital for research, and help purchase medical supplies. Alzheimer’s disease affects an estimated 6 million Americans and this number is projected to more than double by 2050. Additionally, 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another Dementia, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
“All the money raised stays in Central Wisconsin to assist families affected by Dementia & Alzheimer’s, in honor of my dad,” said Nick. “We are proud to carry on his legacy at Marshfield Insurance.”
This year’s event will feature special guests Ryan Ruebl from “Meanwhile in Wisconsin,” former Badgers and Green Bay Packers Bill Ferrario and Jared Abbrederis. Also returning will be a special musical guest, who will perform that evening at Wenzel Plaza in conjunction with the Hub City Concert Series (which Marshfield Insurance is sponsoring). Anyone is welcome to attend the live music at Wenzel Plaza in the evening, even if they are unable to attend the golfing portion of the day.
Bill Ferrario is a former American football offensive lineman for the Wisconsin Badgers and in the National Football League primarily with the Green Bay Packers. Jared Abbrederis is a former American football wide receiver. He played college football at Wisconsin and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Ryan Ruebl is a content creator, comedian and viral video star who runs the popular social media series Meanwhile in Wisconsin.
“This is a great event every year and we love seeing all the support for such a worthy cause,” said Nick Arnoldy. “We’re excited to have a great group of golfers and special guests during the day, followed by very talented musicians at night. It’s a full day of fun that you won’t want to miss. Plus, it’s on a Friday this year, which makes it a great start to the weekend!”
