Cammie Johnson Foundation fundraiser kicks off for the weekend

By  | 

MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A local foundation is thanking its sponsors for helping them raise awareness about diabetes.

On Friday, the Cammie Johnson Foundation threw a VIP party to say thank you to those who have donated.

Folks were able to play golf at Tanglewood Greens in Menomonie, enjoy dinner, and a comedy show.

Johnson passed way in December 2007 from complications of diabetes.

The event benefits the Cammie Johnson scholarship fund, regional ADA youth camps, and diabetic supplies.

Organizers say they're grateful for all the support.

“The love and support that the community has shown the Johnson family and helped their friends and neighbors with diabetes is just plain incredible”, says Robin Johnson, Chairperson for the Cammie Johnson Foundation. “It means so much to us, so much to our family.”

The 10 year anniversary event is Saturday at Tanglewood Greens in Menomonie.
