On a gorgeous Friday in Greenfield, 29 teams teed it up for a good cause at the annual Highland District Hospital Foundation Golf Outing at Buckeye Hills Country Club.
At the end of the day, more than $13,000 was raised to support the HDH GreatER Care Campaign. This campaign, which began in 2016 and will continue until 2020, is an effort to raise over $1.5 million toward the renovation and expansion of the emergency department at Highland District Hospital in Hillsborto. Prior to the event, $1,224,159 had been raised.
“We had wonderful support from the community and it turned out to be a gorgeous day for golf,” HDH Foundation Director Cathy Jones said. “We would like to thank the 29 teams that played.”
Team Dr. Jolitz/Dr. Lawley consisting of Dr. Brian Jolitz, Dr. Christopher Lawley, Terry Thomas and Kyle Fulk won the four-person scramble.
“This was another fun and successful event,” Jones said. “Thanks to each and every hospital employee and foundation board volunteer who helped make this event possible. In addition, we could not have reached this level of success without the support of the the event sponsors.”
