Event Raises $18K for Community HospitalMonday, July 21, 2014
Morrisville, VT…Seventy-two (72) golfers can call themselves winners, along with Copley Hospital, after last weekend’s Copley Scramble. Copley Hospital officials are pleased to announce that the annual tournament raised more than $18,140 for the community hospital.
“This was our 27th annual tournament. I am truly amazed at what great supporters Copley has,” commented Copley Hospital Vice President of Development Leah Hollenberger. “They enjoy supporting their local hospital while also connecting with friends over 18 holes of play. It makes for a really fun day for a great cause.”
Funds are raised by player fees, sponsorship packages and a golfer grab bag that includes two mulligans and participation in a putting contest. Many players take advantage of an “early-bird” registration. This year the tournament sold out more than a month in advance.
Following the post-play luncheon provided by the Copley Country Club, prizes donated courtesy of area businesses were awarded to the top four teams. They were:
First Place Gross Team:
Chris Gautreau, Bob Cheney, Shannon Gaulin and Terry Francis [Hackett Valine & MacDonald Team]
First Place Low Net Team:
Andy Duff, Carl Oehrle, Tracy Webster, Ed Webster [Copley Emergency Dept. Team]
Second Place Low Net Team:
Cynthia Borck, Marsha Mongeon, Jason McArthur, Jeff Coslett [Union Bank Team]
Third Place Low Net Team:
Ben Hickory, Dean Warner, Paul Richey, Bill Hunt [Trapp Family Lodge Team]
Additional prizes were awarded for longest drive and closest to the pin:
Men’s Closest to the Pin: (a tie) Joe Subasic and Gordon Johanson
Women’s Closest to the Pin: Susan Gregory
Men’s Longest Drive: Jack Sykas
Women’s Longest Drive: Angie Hildenbrand
“We couldn’t do the Scramble without volunteer coordinator Polly Manosh or our presenting sponsor, Stewart Construction,” said Hollenberger. “We are so grateful to them for making the tournament possible. We also thank Hackett Valine & MacDonald, Union Bank, MVP Health Care, Community National Bank, MetLife Resources, our many hole sponsors, local businesses, and the Copley Country Club for their support.”
Copley Hospital may have taken home the winnings, but everyone involved in this event was a winner, as their continued support allows Copley to deliver high quality care to all those in need.
