TCMH Healthcare Foundation Holds Annual Charitable Golf Tournament
The Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation held the Sixth Annual Charitable Golf Tournament at Oakwood Golf Course in Houston on Sat., June 11. Forty-two teams participated in the 18-hole two-person scramble, and nearly $16,000 was raised for the Foundation by the tournament.
The tournament had tee times at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. with prizes awarded to the top three teams in four categories—Championship Flight; A-Flight; B-Flight and C-Flight. Golfers had the opportunity to win a new Chevrolet Cruze sponsored by Sturgeon Chevrolet-Buick Company with a hole in one on hole five at the course.
Winners of the Championship Flight were Jordan Slayton and Kevin Stilley who shot a 61, followed by Darren Petrus and Scott Kelly with a 61for second place (tiebreaker rules were enforced for teams shooting the same score), and Dr. Steve Hawkins and Perry Hensick with a score of 62 in third place.
A-Flight winners were Ron Murray and Larry Barton in first place with a 66, followed by Larry Benoist and Brian Durham in second with a 66, and third place winners, Sandy Kerr and Charles Blackwell with a 67.
Winners of the B-Flight were David Kirk and Mike Medwid with a 73. Finishing second were Harrison Barnett and Brian Barnett also with a 73. Mike McMillin and Kevin Thomas, also with a 73, came in third.
C-Flight winners were Delinda Lansdown and Daniel Miller with an 80. Sam Wilson and Chris Weaver shot an 81 for second place, and Dr. Lynn Hauenstein and Ed Campbell finished third with an 81.
First and second place winners in all flights received cash prizes and trophies. Third place winners in the Championship flight received a cash prize , and the remaining flights received gift cards.
The women’s winner of the longest drive was Susan Hansen. Slayton won the men’s longest drive. Hauenstein won the women’s most accurate drive, and Travis Taylor took honors with the men’s most accurate drive. Denny Blackburn won the longest putt contest.
A “Vegas Par 3” closest to the pin contest was sponsored by Jim Bukowsky of Southern Missouri Financial and Wes Murray. Winning the contest were Slayton in first, McMillin in second, and Hancick in third.
“The Big Advantage” on the fourth hole allowed golfers to move up to within 125 yards of the putting green and was sponsored by Wehr Motors and Big Country 99. The game could reduce golf scores and included a closest to the pin contest. Kevin Clary was the winner of “The Big Advantage”.
According to Jay Gentry, president of the TCMH Healthcare Foundation, the funds generated by the golf tournament will be used to fund scholarships for healthcare related educational fields and to provide resources for enhancing patient care.
“We filled all of the available team slots in the morning and afternoon rounds, and we received numerous sponsorships from individuals and businesses,” Gentry said, adding that a few late entry teams had to be turned away from the tournament.
Gentry noted that corporate sponsorships by Tree Terminator, JE Dunn Construction and Mercy Health Plans greatly aided the Foundation in putting on a nice tournament for the participants. Gentry also thanked the numerous volunteers and the staff at Oakwood for their time and efforts on behalf of the Foundation’s tournament.
“Some of our winners also donated their winnings back to the Foundation, something that we greatly appreciate,” Gentry said. “The Foundation is a local charity and all of the money we receive for the Foundation will remain in the county.”
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation is the non-profit organization with a mission to ensure the quality of healthcare services for children, women, and men at Texas County Memorial Hospital. Funding for the Foundation comes from grateful patients and their families, community members and groups, and businesses that value healthcare in our area. A board of community leaders from across the county directs the TCMH Healthcare Foundation and the funds held by the Foundation.
“Once again, this tournament has been very successful for the Healthcare Foundation,” Gentrysaid.
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation plans to hold the golf tournament fundraiser again in 2012.
