July 31, 2018
It was a picture perfect day for 144 golfers participating in the 31st annual Copley Scramble Golf Tournament. Overall, the event raised $21,200 for the hospital’s Charitable Care Program, a program that helps ensure patients receive care regardless of ability to pay. This year’s event honored former Hospital Trustee Cynthia Borck (1950-2018). A portion of the proceeds purchased a crab apple tree placed at the site of Cynthia’s hole-in-one at the Copley Country Club. Leah Hollenberger, Copley Hospital’s Vice President of Marketing, Community Relations and Development extends a huge thanks to volunteer coordinator Polly Manosh for her efforts in organizing this year’s event and filling the field.

This year’s leading sponsors included: NFP, Vermont Federal Credit Union, MVP Health Care, Union Bank, and Vermont Mechanical, Inc.
