Grant Regional Health Center Foundation held its Fourteenth Annual Golf Benefit on Saturday, June 11th, 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 $200,000 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, Wolf L&G Farms, TDS Telecom, TRICOR Insurance, L&M Corrugated Containers, Nicole Clapp CEO, TrustPoint, Quarles and Brady LLP, Findorff & Son, Horty Elving, Scenic Rivers Energy Coop, Advanced Radiology, Peoples State Bank and Energy Management Consultants. This year's Flight Sponsors were Majestic View Dairy, Digicorp, Drs. Krynn Buckley & Bryan Pechous and ISG Advisors.
The winners for Division I, sponsored by Pioneer Directories were Kile Jerrett, Dennis Schmidt, Darin Wilken and Kurt Bendorf with a score of 51. With a score of 48, the first place team for Division II, sponsored by Ace Lending was Mary Kirsch, Larry Kane, Brian Kirsch & Kevin Kirsch.
There were many special events; Les Mack Chevrolet sponsored a 2016 Chevy Cruz for a hole in one; Eastman Cartwright sponsored a 50 foot putt in which one lucky golfer, Bob Schmidt came within inches of winning $5000. Newline Real Estate sponsored a Sink or Swim event – Bill Bosch was the lucky winner of $100 cash. The Foundation also hosted an "Aim Against a Jr. Champion" event – Noah Kirsch went up against all the teams and proved to be a wonderful addition to the outing. There were numerous raffle prizes distributed during the steak dinner and the event concluded with a DVD highlighting the day of golf and fun.
