The Winona Health Foundation’s Ben & Adith Miller Classic features a free public exhibition by professional golfer Lisa “Longball” Vlooswyk, Monday, August 5 at 10 a.m., at Cedar Valley Golf Course, 25019 County Road 9 in Winona. The exhibition is open to the public.
The Ben & Adith Miller Classic is an annual golf outing that began in 1990 and is a fundraiser for the Winona Health Foundation’s Ben & Adith Miller Patient Care Fund. The Patient Care Fund was established by Benjamin Miller in 1986, in honor of his wife Adith, as a unique community resource to help people in need pay for medical care at Winona Health. This year, Winona Health is celebrating its 125th year of serving the community.
Vlooswyk is an eight-time Canadian Long Drive Champion and has finished as high as second in the world. She currently competes on the Golf Channel’s World Long Drive Association Tour and is the first woman to ever hit a golf ball the length of 3.5 NFL football fields in competition. She holds the Canadian Women’s Long Drive record at 350 yards, 2 feet, 2 inches. She’s also won Golf Week Magazine’s Golf Fest Entertainer of the Year award.
