Greene County Memorial Hospital Foundation Holds Ninth Annual Golf Benefit
The Greene County Memorial Hospital Foundation held its ninth annual golf benefit on July 15, 2016, at the Greene County Country Club. Sixteen teams signed up to support the Foundation and enjoy a day of golf. In all, more than twenty organizations and several individuals participated by providing a variety of sponsorships and gifts.
Accelerated Construction Services, this year’s Event Sponsor, took home first place with an outstanding score of sixteen under par. Behm Funeral Home placed second by shooting eleven under par, and last year’s defending champions from Waynesburg University won the tiebreaker for third place with a score of nine under par.
The 2016 Miss Rain Day contestants were on hand volunteering their time to help the cause and make sure everyone had a good time.
The real winners from the day were Greene County and the Foundation. This year’s golf benefit raised thousands of dollars that will support the construction of the new EQT REC Center to be located in EverGreene Technology Park. The foundation’s next fundraising event will be the annual Harvest Ball to be held at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort on Saturday, November 12, 2016. More information about sponsorships and tickets will be available in the coming months.
The 27th Annual Harvest Ball was held once again at the lovely Nemacolin Woodlands Resort on November 12, 2016. More than two hundred people attended the festive gala, with all proceeds designated to the Raise the Rec Capital Campaign to build the EQT REC Center. Musical entertainment was provided by Protégé and JNB Photography was on hand to add to the evening’s festivities. Next year’s ball will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017.
