Morrisville, VT – It was a perfect golfing day for the full field of golf enthusiasts and armatures who participated in Copley’s annual Copley Scramble Golf Tournament on July 12th. “The Saturday scramble proved to be a tremendous success for both our community hospital and for the participating golfers,” said Leah Hollenberger, Copley Hospital Vice President of Community Relations and Development. Thanks to the support of sponsors and the 72 enthusiastic golfers, the event raised more than $18,000 to help purchase bedside cardiac monitoring equipment for the hospital’s Medical Surgical Unit, Recovery Room and Birthing Center. In addition, monies also support Copley’s Charitable Care Program, a program that provided nearly $1million in care last year. Hollenberger notes that the event continues to be a popular tournament amongst the community and hospital vendors. “We are truly moved by the outpour of support by both local community members and hospital vendors,” continued Hollenberger. This year’s lineup of golfers included members from the Hardwick/Greensboro area, Stowe, Morrisville and Burlington/Essex Junction.
40 local and regional businesses participated in the Scramble through a variety of sponsorship packages and prizes. “Sponsors play a key role in the tournament. We appreciate their support and extend sincere thanks for their part in ensuring the tournament is about our community,” says Hollenberger. “Stewart Construction, Inc., our presenting sponsor, along with Hackett Valine & MacDonald, Inc., and MVP Health Care, our platinum sponsors, Community National Bank and MetLife Resources, our reception sponsors, and Union Bank, our gold sponsor, enabled us to promote the tournament early on.” Hollenberger continued, “The generous support from local businesses as hole and bronze sponsors plus in-kind support with prizes helped us attract a full field of golfers who shared in friendly competition while having a great day of play.” Hollenberger also acknowledged the help from Polly Manosh and the Copley Country Club’s Terry Francis in coordinating the event.
