Annual Golf Event and Fundraiser to Support CMH Enjoys Banner Year

Foundation golf event honors M. Scott Wood, draws in 116 golfers, and raises $52,000 for CMH

It was a great day for golf and Columbia Memorial Health.

After a rainy start, the clouds gave way to a beautiful afternoon on Monday, Aug. 1 and 116 happy golfers “chipped in” to support CMH. In addition to the players, 104 businesses also supported the event with tee signs and donations of auction and raffle prizes. Major sponsors included MetzWood Insurance, Greene Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and Pine Haven Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

The sold out tournament was held in memory of M. Scott Wood, a great champion and advocate of CMH and The Columbia-Greene Hospital Foundation. It took place at the beautiful Columbia Golf and Country Club. Club Professional, Marc Levesque, and the outstanding country club staff took excellent care of the golfers and helped make the event the most successful tournament ever.

This year’s tournament raised over $52,000. Among other special projects at CMH, these funds will enable the Hospital to proceed with the expansion of its very busy Emergency Department.

Thanks to the event’s many generous golfers and sponsors, the tournament continues to grow each year. If you missed it, don’t worry. Plans are already underway for next year’s event. So save the first Monday in August and plan to “chip in” for CMH.
