Make-a-Wish golfer’s hole-in-one wins him 2019 Chevrolet Camaro

Kohler – What started out as a beautiful morning for golf at Blackwolf Run, became a magical day for Cambellsport resident Craig Hatch, who aced the 17th hole at Blackwolf Run’s River Course to win a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro from Van Horn Automotive Group.

Hatch, a brain cancer survivor himself, was participating in the annual Make-A-Wish Wisconsin golf outing, sponsored by Sargento and Johnsonville. Van Horn Automotive was the sponsor of two, hole-in-one contests at Blackwolf Run. With an 8 iron in hand, Hatch approached the 154-yard 17th hole of the River Course for his first tee shot of the day during a shotgun start. Hatch stated, “I didn’t think the ball actually went in! It was my first shot of the day and I was in disbelief. As the witness walked to the hole to verify that it was in there, I ran next to her because I couldn’t believe it. It was my first hole in one and my first time golfing in the Make-A-Wish golf outing.”

“This is my second time volunteering as a hole-in-one contest witness for the Make-A-Wish golf outing, said Sunday Strong, Executive Assistant at Van Horn Automotive Group. “It’s such a fun day for everyone. I’ve seen many golfers get close, but never make a hole-in-one; so to see Mr. Hatch achieve this feat was truly an exciting experience.” Teresa Van Horn, Co-CEO of Van Horn Automotive Group added, “We enjoy sponsoring great causes like Make-A-Wish alongside other area businesses to thank our communities for their patronage.”

Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We seek to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness.
