A recent golf tournament provided a fair way to drive up healthcare donations.  

St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation says the 19th Annual Friends of St. Francis Charity Golf Tournament was a big hit. 

Thirty-eight teams of golfers gathered at the Homestead at Wolf Ridge Golf Course in Killaloe on Friday, Sept. 1, for the event.  

The tournament was raising funds for St. Francis Memorial Hospital and it coincided with the final day of the Foundation’s online auction.

The total amount of funds raised for the two events is expected to be announced later this week, but the Foundation says, “this year’s events were very successful.” 

The tournament and auction were to help the hospital purchase two digital workstations, two stretchers, and a telemetry unit for cardiac patients.  

The winning foursome in the tournament was Kenny Yandernoll’s team with a score of -15. Teammates included Tony Shulist, Jack Shulist and Lyle Shulist. 

The putting contest was won by Jonathan Davidson, who received a gift certificate from the Ash Grove Inn for a night’s stay, dinner and breakfast. 

The following contest winners won gift cards donated by the Barry’s Bay Metro: Brent Dalgleish and Shirley Radey (Men’s and Ladies Closest to the Line, respectively); Mike Murack (Men’s Most Accurate); Scott Gougeon (Closest to the Pin on Green); Mike Weatherbed (Men’s Most Accurate); Matthew Grys (Longest Putt); Doreen Shulist (Ladies Most Accurate); Linda Kloosterman (Closest to the Pin – Ladies); Linda Yuke (Ladies Most Accurate); and Allan Mullin (Closest to the Pin on Green – Men’s). 

Brian Moore won gift cards donated by Golf Town for being Closest to the Target on Hole 5.
