If there is one message that Event Chair Dick McKeeby would like everyone to hear in anticipation of next year’s event, it is that the annual Golf Classic in support of Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis, NY, is always lots of fun.
The recent fundraiser, held on August 10 at the High Point Golf Club, 342 Shore Drive in Montague, New Jersey, welcomed 117 golfers and raised over $44,000, a record to date, for the hospital’s Medical Equipment and Technology Fund.
The High Point Golf Club has 18 picturesque holes that are surrounded by crystal lakes and are a challenge to play for both professional and amateur golfers. And with its immaculate greens, lush landscaping and views of the High Point monument, the golf course is considered to be one of the finest courses in the area.
This year’s major hole-in-one prize, designated on the fifth hole, was a brand new car courtesy of Phil’s Ford in Port Jervis, NY.
Although no one scored the hole-in-one, all the golfers received a variety of amenities including lunch, refreshments served throughout the day, giveaways, awards and valuable prizes, including an Apple iPod and a set of PING golf clubs, followed by a dinner reception at the Erie Trackside Manor in Port Jervis.
Participants reported that the Bon Secours Community Hospital annual Golf Classic was not only the most fun but also the best-organized golf outing they had ever attended and all were looking forward to next year’s event.
“Bon Secours Community Hospital is one of the most important institutions in our community,” said Event Chair Dick McKeeby. “and this Golf Classic, always a fun event, is a great way to show our support. We thank everyone who contributed to its success.”
