MEDINA – Orleans Community Health had a wonderful turn out last Friday for their 34th Annual Golf Tournament held at Shelridge Country Club in Medina. The event is planned and co-hosted by the OCH Foundation and staff from Orleans Community Health.

This year they had a goal of raising $18,000 to purchase equipment for the radiology department at Medina Memorial Hospital. With tremendous support from sponsors and the 112 golfers in attendance, they exceeded the goal and raised approximately $24,000!

Stopping for lunch at the club house are Cindy Perry and Rebecca Manella who also took a moment to catch up with Kimberly Gray.

The radiology equipment being purchased is a part of the larger annual fundraising campaign, “Together We Are Stronger”, that the OCH Foundation is running this year.  Their overall goal is to raise $350,000 for eight different projects throughout all of the Orleans Community Health that will benefit registration, pharmacy, the lab, patient care, facilities, cardiology and radiology.  The remaining funds raised at the tournament will roll over into the campaign and be used to fill any funding gaps that may exist in any one of these areas.

The scramble tournament began around 10 a.m. with brief announcements from Heather Smith, OCH Foundation Executive Director, and Marc Shurtz, OCH CEO and President.  The pair emphasized how grateful they were for everyone attending and how much the community has supported them this past year. Throughout the day, participants could enter for a chance to win a putting contest, multiple 50/50 raffles, a $500 Cash Raffle, and gift baskets that were donated by staff from various departments at OCH and community organizations.

The tournament winners with a score of 60 were Dr. Monti, Gary McCarthy, Michael McCarthy and Don Skibnewski. Our mixed team winners were Mark Klentowski, Ryan Fisher and Bob Hermann with a score of 67. The Longest Drive winners were Jake Cooper and Elise Edward.  And the Closest to the Pin winners were Janelle Cordle and John Cureo.

The OCH Foundation has two more events coming up this year, starting with the $10,000 Mega Drawing to be held on September 14th and then the “Treasure Island” Benefit Event on November 6th.  Tickets for the Mega Drawing are on sale now and can be reserved by calling the foundation office at (585) 798-8426.  More information on the OCH Foundation and this year’s campaign are online at www.supportoch.org.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, board members, and staff at Shelridge for all of your support.
