Golf Tournament Attracts Record Participation
Despite temperatures reaching into the nineties, a record number of golfers participated in Harrison County Community Hospital Foundation’s tenth annual golf fundraiser at the Bethany Country Club on July 13.
The event hosted 68 golfers, representing 34 teams, drawn from as far as Kansas City, according to Tim Hill, the event’s organizer.
Nearly 60 businesses, organizations and individuals also supported the tournament as sponsors.
“Foundation board members and hospital volunteers work hard to organize a day of fun that also raises money to enhance the health and medical services available in our area,” Hill said.
The Foundation will use proceeds from the event to purchase a NuStep exercise machine, vital signs monitor and hot and cold therapy units for the hospital’s physical and occupational therapy departments.
The golf fundraiser is the largest annual event for the Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, but it is not the only source of support. The Foundation also has been the recipient of donations from individuals who want to support the hospital, memorial donations and bequests from estates.
