(9-27-17) – The JTD Hospital Foundation held its 25th Anniversary Golf Classic at Arrowhead Golf Club in Minster, Ohio on September 8th.

Linda Haines, Executive Director of the Foundation:

“It was a great day to celebrate this 25th anniversary milestone event. We greatly appreciate the generosity from the communities we serve along with area businesses and individuals who support quality healthcare provided at Joint Township District Memorial Hospital.”

This 25th anniversary event started with the annual Golf Ball Drop. Golfers witnessed Schmiesing Tree Service of New Bremen drop more than 1000 numbered balls from their 60 foot bucket truck. Three balls fell equally close to the hole, so a 2nd “drop” was performed.  Only one ball fell closest to the hole. That numbered ball matched a ticket number held by the Lab Employees from JTDMH. The 50/50 split for the Golf Ball Drop was $2,950 and Lab employees made the very generous decision to donate over $1,500 of their winnings back to the JTD Hospital Foundation.

A shotgun start at 9:30a.m began the 18-hole scramble with 132 golfers registered to play. Snacks, sandwiches and beverages were served on the golf course followed by a selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres, and Will-Yum’s cupcakes and drinks at the end of the day.
