Despite a morning drizzle, on Saturday, July 11 teams kicked off 18-holes of play for our community hospital at the Copley Country Club. Eight holes into play, the sky opened, and a light breeze provided a perfect ending to a great day of golf and a generous day for Copley Hospital. Seventy-two golfers registered for the 33rd Scramble for Copley Hospital.

“Saturday’s Scramble proved to be a success for both our community hospital and golfers,” said Copley CEO, Joe Woodin. “Thanks to the support of sponsors and enthusiastic golfers, the event raised $21,245.00. This outpouring of support to help Copley Hospital continue to care for all in our community is truly moving to see,” Woodin continued.

More than 30 local and regional businesses, and individuals participated in the Scramble through a variety of sponsorship packages and in-kind donations. “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,” said Woodin. “Community National Bank, our presenting sponsor, along with HUB International and NFP Property & Casualty Service, Inc., our platinum sponsors, and ImageFIRST, MVP Health Plan, Inc., and Union Bank, our gold sponsors, enabled us to promote the tournament early on. “Our twelve hole sponsors, and three bronze sponsors, plus our in-kind businesses and individuals who supported the event with prizes helped us attract a full field of golfers who shared in friendly competition while having a great day of play.”

During post-tournament play, Woodin acknowledged the tremendous help of Polly Manosh, who for the past sixteen years has been instrumental in organizing the event, stating, “Polly is a gem.  Her spirit, tenacity, and dedication has led to yet another successful event for our community hospital. She continues to have Copley’s best interest at heart, and we truly appreciate that.”
