The Copley Scramble Golf Tournament, held on July 13 with 76 participating golfers, raised more than $15,000 for Copley Hospital’s Charitable Care Program.
The program provides discounted and free medical care to those who qualify. Last year, the hospital provided nearly $1 million in charitable care.
“It is truly moving to see the outpouring of support helping Copley Hospital continue to care for all in our community,” said Leah Hollenberger, Copley’s vice president of community relations.
More than 40 local and regional businesses participated in the 26th annual event through a variety of sponsorship packages and prizes. “MVP Health Care along with Hackett Valine & MacDonald, Inc. and Union Bank, enabled us to promote the tournament early on,” Hollenberger said.
She also acknowledged help received from Copley Hospital Foundation Committee chair Polly Manosh and Copley Country Club’s Terry Francis in coordinating the event.
Following play, golfers and guests were treated to a luncheon at the Club House where teams were recognized for their expert scoring.
The overall tournament team winner with the lowest gross score included Bob Fair, Dan Hudson, Peter Kipp and Brian Niemi. The second-place team was Walt Frame, Ben Heckory, Bill Hunt and Paul Richey.
The first-place team with the lowest net score included Keith Dunbar, Zach Jandl, Matt McMahon and Bryan Saremba. Second place went to Tara Beeman, BJ King, Kevin Petrichko and Tim Trombley; third place went to Chris Gautreau, Nick Grimley, Tod LaGrow and Daron Solomon.
The team recognized for best effort while having a great time was that of Dr. David and Mary Jean Coddaire and Richard and Judy Shanley.
