Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation 27th Annual Golf Tournament
On Monday, June 25, Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation held its 27th Annual Golf Tournament at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville. The Foundation's tournament brings together friends of Washington Hospital to raise money for hospice care and cancer services at Washington Hospital.
The fundraising event featured a putting contest, 18-hole golf tournament, buffet dinner, raffle, silent auction, live auction and awards ceremony. This year, almost 240 golfers enjoyed a great day out on the course, and over 320 guests attended the banquet at the country club.
It was another successful year, with proceeds totaling over $95,000. "This was our first time hosting the tournament at Blackhawk, and the golfers were very excited about playing a new course," said Demetrious Shaffer, President of the Foundation. "The turn out was tremendous, and we raised more than we thought we could. Thanks are due to our sponsors and golfers, whose support generated this healthy charitable contribution. I'd also like to thank our volunteers who, year after year, help organize the day on the course and at the banquet. I am deeply grateful to golfers, sponsors, and volunteers alike."
The Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation Golf Tournament is held in memory of longtime Fremont businessman, Gene Angelo Pessagno, a founding member of the Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation. Laura Pessagno and her family continue to be strong supporters of the tournament, after all these years.
This year's tournament was organized by Chairman Lamar Hinton who worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the event.
"The Golf Committee members left no stone unturned in getting sponsorships and recruiting golfers for the tournament. I would like to thank every single member for their hard work," said Hinton.
Many awards were given out at the banquet. The winner of the tournament trophy, the Corporate Challenge Cup, was the foursome from Fremont Bank consisting of Mike Wallace, Kevin Smith, Bobby Jones and Jeff Roldan. Mike Wallace is also the President of the Washington Township Health Care District Board.
