GRHC golf outing
Grant Regional Health Center Foundation held its Fifteenth Annual Golf Benefit on Saturday, June 10th, at the Lancaster Country Club. Although the weather was very warm, one hundred golfers were on hand to enjoy the day and support the foundation. The proceeds from this event will go towards the hospital campus expansion & renovation project. The benefit golf outing has raised more than $220,000 over the past years and the GRHC Foundation has distributed these proceeds to the hospital for new equipment and projects to better serve patients and enhance quality care.
The money raised is a result of player registration fees and sponsorships by local and regional businesses. Corporate sponsors for this year's event included HealthTechS3, TDS Telecom, TRICOR Insurance, L&M Corrugated Containers, Nicole Clapp CEO, Quarles and Brady LLP, Findorff & Son, Wold, Scenic Rivers Energy Coop, Peoples State Bank and Energy Management Consultants. This year's Flight Sponsors were Majestic View Dairy, LMC Insurance, NAMI and ISG Advisors.
The winners for Division I, were Jerry Ruchti, Dick Burns, Tim Myers & David Zellinger with a score of 51. With a score of 53 the first place team for Division II, sponsored by Kirsch's Tax & Accounting was Mary Kirsch, Larry Kane, Brian Kirsch & Chuck Kirsch.
One of the highlights of this year's event was our Honorary Chair Dr. Butch Rosser awarded the first Single & Strong gift bundle to Christie Schwager. He and his wife Dana want to "offer a pat on the back" to a single parent making it work! They will award this bundle three times each year.
There were many special events; Les Mack Chevrolet sponsored a 2017 Chevy Malibu for a hole in one; Eastman Cartwright sponsored a 50 foot putt in which one lucky golfer, Greg Swift got very close to winning $5000. Newline Real Estate sponsored a Sink or Swim event and a Silent Auction dinner for 8 from Judy Friar and friends went to Dr. Bob Smith. There were numerous raffle prizes distributed during the steak dinner.
The Golf Outing is one of the activities that the foundation sponsors to fulfill its mission of fostering good will and encouraging financial support for Grant Regional Health Center.
