WPS Health Insurance, Wisconsin’s leading not-for-profit health insurer and provider of affordable individual health insurance and group health insurance, is proud to sponsor VSA Wisconsin’s 14th Annual Golf Exhibition to be held Monday, June 20 at the Cherokee Country Club in Madison. Featuring Steve Stricker, top-ranked professional golfer and Madison resident, this annual event supports VSA Wisconsin’s mission to make a positive impact on the lives of children and adults with disabilities through participation in the arts. A nine-hole golf exhibition at 9 a.m. will be followed immediately by a luncheon (approximately 11:30) featuring VSA Wisconsin participants, a silent and live auction of sports memorabilia and other special items, and a Q&A session with Steve.
Jim Riordan, president and chief executive officer of WPS, also serves as chair of the board of directors at VSA Wisconsin. “In these challenging economic times, the creative arts are more important to people than ever,” said Riordan. “Participation in the arts stimulates the senses and lifts the human spirit. As proud sponsor of this event, WPS Health Insurance is pleased to support VSA Wisconsin in its mission to celebrate the creative power and artistic accomplishments of children and adults with disabilities.”
Several sponsorship levels are still available for this event, including:
$150—Lunch exhibition for one participant

*Includes an opportunity for a corporate representative to golf with Steve Stricker in the exhibition.
All of the event’s tax-allowable donations will be directed to the VSA Art Center. Established in 1997, the VSA Art Center provides individual and group classes for children and adults with disabilities. Classes are designed to give individuals with disabilities an opportunity to meet new friends, participate in activities outside of home and work, and experience the arts firsthand.
The annual VSA Golf Exhibition featuring Steve Stricker has raised more than $500,000 for the VSA Art Center since 1997. WPS has been a major sponsor every year since the event began.
An active sponsor of local community organizations, WPS has supported VSA Wisconsin since 1985, offering financial backing for innovative new programs, professional expertise in the areas of technology, marketing and printing, and volunteer support for many activities, from fairs to fundraisers.
