Golf & Gala event raises funds for MedWest-Haywood
CLYDE, N.C. – The HRMC Foundation raised more than $156,000 recently during its 2011 Annual Charitable Classic Golf & Gala to support services at MedWest-Haywood.
Approximately 135 sponsors and 360 golfers participated in the two-day golf event played Aug. 30-31 at Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa, Maggie Valley Club and Laurel Ridge Country Club. More than 500 guests attended the gala held the evening of Aug. 31 at the Waynesville Inn.
Funds raised will go toward purchase of equipment for Homestead Hospice opening in November, purchase of surgery equipment for the new Outpatient Surgery Center opening in 2012, and support of the Unrestricted Endowment Fund for new Vital Sign Machines and Mini-Grants.
“Money raised from this event provides for much needed services at MedWest-Haywood,” said Allan Machesney, who served with his wife, Missy, as co-chairs of the event. “We were honored to work with the golf committee and more than 75 volunteers who helped make this event so successful.”
Top gross and net winners from the five golf tournaments held during the two-day event were: Maggie Valley Club Men’s Tuesday Tournament, Luc Courchene and Jim Fugate (net) and Eric Fowler and Phil Bland (gross); Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa Ladies Tuesday Tournament, Janet Millsaps and Andrea Thurn (net) and Donna Stamey and Nancy Duckworth (gross); Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa Men’s Wednesday Morning Tournament, John Berrong and Randy Wood (net) and Tommy Finger and Tony Buchanan (gross); Laurel Ridge Country Club Men’s Wednesday Noon Tournament, Dr. Bill Owen and Jim Owen (net) and Keith Banks and Richard Reeves (gross); Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa Men’s Wednesday Afternoon Tournament, Phil Reece and Steve Foreman (net) and Eric Fowler and Andy Fowler (gross).
