SGH Foundation holds benefit golf tournament
The Sistersville General Hospital Foundation held their annual benefit golf tournament on Sept. 17 at the Sistersville Country Club. Fourteen teams participated in the scramble with each team vying for the various prizes and a chance to win the top prize of a new vehicle. Bell Chevrolet, once again through their generosity, made possible the Hole-In-One contest and, although no one won again this year, it remains a part of the tournament which provides excitement for all those involved.
Each year this major fund raiser is made possible through the generous support of the community and those who believe in SGH.
Proceeds from past tournaments have allowed SGH to renovate the emergency department and purchase needed equipment.
Level one sponsors ($1,000) or more for this year’s event were Sistersville Subway-Jack Hammond, Bell Chevrolet, Union Bank, Honeywell, and Art Lichillo. Other sponsors for the tournament were Jarvis Funeral Home, Frederick, Dean Rohrig, BSI, Camden Clark MedicalCenter, Brickstreet.
Also, Linda Leasure, State Farm Insurance Agent, Phillips Pharmacy, Wable Ford, H. E. Newmann Co., Air Evac., J. C. Mensore Distributor, Inc., Grisell Funeral Home, WesBanco, Myers Funeral Home, Kings Corner, and New Martinsville Moose Lodge 931.
In-kind donations were also received from 93RRR, Stonewall Jackson Resort, Union Bank, Long Reach Federal Credit Union, Friendly Lions Club, Linda Dawson, M. A. CCC-A, Tyler Star News, Dr. Dung Le, US Food Services, CDW, and Katrina Byers.
This year’s tournament had plenty of volunteers which are the strength of any fundraiser.
Volunteering their time and talents this year included SGH Foundation Secretary Katrina Byers: SGH Community Outreach Coordinator, Diana Rice; SGH Employees, Missy Barker, Luanne Beard, Susan Mason, CFO Carl Worrell, and CEO John May.
Refreshments were served throughout the day as the weather was perfect and the grill was a busy place to be as the golfers made their rounds for drinks and hot dogs.
The Foundation would like to extend their appreciation to everyone who made this event so successful, and for allowing SGH the privilege to continue providing the “best healthcare close to home”.
