Ben Marcus Variety Golf Classic

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Wisconsin has opened registration for the 46th Annual Ben Marcus Variety Golf Classic on Monday, July 17. This year, there is an additional event on July 16, in which golfers can bid on the opportunity to golf nine holes with an executive from The Marcus Corporation. Both the Golf Classic and the Sunday Bid and Golf Event will be held at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa.
This annual event brings together golf enthusiasts and supporters of Variety – the Children’s Charity of Wisconsin for a fun day of golf and fundraising in honor of Ben Marcus, founder of The Marcus Corporation and Variety of Wisconsin. In the years since its inception, the one-day golf event has consistently sold out and has raised about $90,000 for its cause.

The Marcus Corporation chairman, Steve Marcus, who has been golfing in this event since its inception said, “Variety has set an important example of how dedicated volunteers and professionals can make a huge difference in the quality of the lives of kids and their families.”

Monday’s participants can look forward to 18-holes on the award-winning golf course, The Brute, as well as a cocktail hour, post-golf program and dinner.

For the newly created Bid and Golf event on Sunday, golfers can bid to golf nine holes with an executive of The Marcus Corporation, including Greg Marcus and a few others. A VIP cocktail party with additional Marcus executives is also included. Bidding is open and available online at

Proceeds from both events will go towards supporting Variety’s mission to enrich the lives of children with physical or developmental special needs and their families.
All those who are passionate about transforming the lives of Wisconsin children with special needs are invited to participate in these fun and meaningful events. It’s a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a day of golf, friends and good times while making a difference in the lives of children in need. Register now to secure your sponsorship or foursome,
