Golfers raised a total of $500 for FISH food banks in the second annual Hood River Care Center Antique Golfer’s Championship tournament on Sunday, Oct. 7. The event was a nine-hole scramble with four-person teams and at least one person on each team was 70 years of age or older.
This was the Care Center’s second year doing the event, but this year all proceeds went to FISH Food Bank in Hood River.
“We wanted to do something to help; the food bank is such a great organization and if we can raise money and have fun, then why not?” said Care Center Marketing Director Jenelle McCleary.
Eight teams turned out for the event. After their rounds, players enjoyed lunch and awards at the Hood River Golf clubhouse.
The top three teams were: Tom Godwin, George Smith, John Pulliam and Amy McCormack with the low score of 30; Bud Harris, Tony Barbieri and teammate John with a 31 for second place; and Clinton Curtis, Doug Balzer, Jeremy McCleary and Duane Reed coming in third with a score of 32.
McCleary said Hood River Care Center would like to thank Hood River Golf and Country Club for hosting the event as well as E & L Auto Parts for prize donations and Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital for their hole sponsorship.
