Ansay & Associates raises over $1,000 at golf outing to help family in need

As part of the Eau Claire Region Annual Golf Outing, a family in need is selected that we can help in a small way. The contest is called “Yellow Ball,” where each of the 15 teams buy a yellow ball for $20. At the end of the golf round, those who still have a yellow ball place the ball in a drawing to split the pot 50/50 with the family selected. The goal was to raise $150 to help the family of Graysen, a child born with spina bifida. Jesse Lofgren’s team won - and immediately donated their winnings back to the family. So many others showed their concern and caring of Graysen by adding to the donation amount. Our team of Producers, Account Managers, Insurance Advisors, Underwriters, Marketing Representatives, and Management Representatives banded together and all felt the need to help this amazing family.

Jeremy, the father of Graysen, has suffered many tragedies in his life including the loss of two wives. He has taken care of his son, Jeric, who was badly injured causing cognitive issues due to the accident that killed his first wife. His second wife, Sara, died of breast cancer and he again has taken the sole responsibility of watching over their daughter, Taylor. He is now remarried to Paula and they have had another child, Graysen, who was diagnosed with spina bifida. Regents Hospital was able to perform surgery in the womb to correct some health issues, but it will be a long road ahead. Graysen was born 2.5 months early and is still at Regents Hospital where he is getting his weight up and monitored closely. We hope our donation can help this family in some way, and our continued thoughts and prayers are with them.
