Bob Powers Classic Golf Outing a Success
August 16, 2011
Last year the Madison County Hospital Foundation renamed their County Classic golf outing the Bob Powers Classic in honor of their long time volunteer chairman. The Bob Powers Classic was held August 10 and 11 at the London Country Club. Each year this event raises over $20,000 to improve health care services in Madison County.
“Our founder and twenty-one year chair Bob Powers passed away last year just days before this event; however, it was apparent to our committee that Bob is still very much in charge," said Mona Flax, Executive Director of the Foundation. "When you look at the beautiful weather, sell out crowd of golfers, and enthusiastic volunteers who have made this one of our best years ever, you realize there was some divine intervention involved."
Funds from the Bob Powers Classic golf outing will benefit the Foundation's new campaign "Caring for Today and Tomorrow." The $2 million campaign will support information technology initiatives, including the addition of electronic health records (EHRs); add new equipment to radiology, surgery, and laboratory; and expand endowment funds that assist uninsured patients.
At the two-day golf event, players competed in both individual and team competitions.
Wednesday’s 18 four-person golf teams competed in a shamble with awards for both the low gross team and the low net team. Congratulations to the winners!
Low Gross Team: Richard Flax, Eric Ransburgh, Tim Sheehy, and Bob Snyder.
Low Net Team: Pat Campbell, Patrick Campbell, Parks Davis, and Ryan Parrish.
Thursday’s 19 six-person golf teams competed in a classic scramble. Congratulations to the winners!
First Place Team: Bryan Howard, George Gonzales, Vince Marchese, Gus Miller, Jim Murphy, and Phil Wall.
Second Place Team: Scott Hingson, Jamie Kaltenbach, Dave Lattimer, Rick Pollard, Tim Roby, and Gene Wolverton.
Golfers also competed individually for closest to the pin and longest putt on two specific holes. The winners in the men’s competition were Fred Woodworth for closest to the pin and Ron Lewis for longest putt. In the ladies' competition, Anita Zeigler won closest to the pin, and Mary Anderson won longest putt.
Madison County Hospital and the Foundation would like to thank all the sponsors, golfers, and volunteers that made this year’s Bob Powers Classic a success.
“Please mark your calendars on August 8 and 9 for next year’s Bob Powers Classic golf outing and join us in remembering and celebrating our remarkable friend, Bob Powers,” said Mona.
