Another year and a successful Golf Scramble
Another successful golf scramble is in the books. September 27th, 2015 turned out to be a spectacular fall day for the 20th Annual Golf Scramble Fundraiser. This year we had 19 teams registered including our special guests; members from the Maple Hill, Grand Marais, and Gunflint Trail Fire Departments. Registration for this fun event included; a continental breakfast, lunch, green fees, cart, and an invitation to the 19th Hole Reception at Lutsen Resort. Prizes were given for 1st, 2nd, and highest scoring team. There were also prizes for golf games played throughout the tournament including a new putter. This year’s general prize drawings consisted of cash drawings of $200, $100, and $50.
The event could not run smoothly without the help from our fun and fearless volunteers. These folks are determined to running a successful event. We had people selling Mulligans and entries into contest holes. We had volunteers delivering lunches and beverages throughout the course, and let’s not forget the small but extremely efficient assembly of workers making lunches in the clubhouse. They all run this fundraiser like a well-oiled machine.
This year’s focus was on the foundation’s cancer travel fund. This fund is specifically for people of Cook County, and NSHCF manages it with no administrative expenses taken out. This is also the only program of the NSHCF that gives money directly to individuals. It is a simple program that supports a cancer patient with $200 to offset some travel expenses. All that is required is a signature from a doctor or nurse on a voucher. For more information on this program, please contact the Foundation office at 387-9076.
It was a great day of giving to benefit healthcare in Cook County. The success of the tournament would not be possible without the generous donations from the businesses and individuals who contribute to the scramble. Thank you everyone who gave so generously to the benefit of health care for everyone that lives, works, and visits in Cook County.
See you next year!
