The JTD Hospital Foundation held its 26th Annual Golf Classic at Arrowhead Golf Club in Minster, Ohio on September 7th. Linda Haines, Executive Director of the Foundation states,:
“We had great attendance with 34 teams registered, many generous sponsors, prizes and a lot of fun! The JTD Hospital Foundation greatly appreciates the generosity from the communities we serve along with area businesses and individuals who support quality healthcare provided at Joint Township District Memorial Hospital.”
The Golf Classic got started with the annual Golf Ball Drop. Golfers witnessed Schmiesing Tree Service of New Bremen drop numbered balls from their 60 foot bucket truck. Only one ball fell in the Hole. That ball’s number matched a ticket number held by Adam Kremer. Adam won a 50/50 split of $1,755.
A shotgun start at 9:30 a.m began the 18-hole best ball scramble. Several contests including: two longest-drive holes, four closest-to-the-pin holes, and a Hole-in-One Contest for a NEW CAR -sponsored by St. Marys Chrysler. Golfers also had the opportunity to make a Hole-in-One or a 40 foot putt, each for $5,000 CASH. Although there were no winners, it was exciting to watch several golfers get very, very close. Each golfer was given a pullover as a gift for their attendance there that day and many raffle and proximity prizes were also awarded. Snacks, sandwiches and beverages were served on the golf course followed by a selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts and drinks at the end of the day.
