VAMSF – Golf Outing

Ball on tee




What a beautiful day for golf…, Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016.

The event was SOLD OUT!, so we raised a significant amount of money for VAMSF and nursing scholarships.  With 144 golfers (36 teams; 2 teams on every tee) it was a challenge to keep everything moving smoothly, and we thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the six hours you were on the course.

On to the Banquet!  Toni Fatone, Esq and current Chair of the Vera Arterburn Memorial Scholarship Fund greeted everyone on behalf of VAMSF and reminded us all how critical is the current and future need for nurses.  She thanked everyone for their generosity on this day to help VAMSF in its mission to award scholarships to worthy individuals pursuing a career in nursing.

Our first place team this year was The Nurse Network with a team score of 59.  Second place was a tie between the CT ACHCA team and the McKesson team with a team score of 61.  Jim Omara of PharMerica was the longest male drive on the 12th Hole, and Heather Dacunto of Geriatric Medical Supply was the longest female drive on the 12th Hole.

Ray Hackling was the winning draw on the 9th Hole 50/50 Raffle and took home a sizeable pot.  The General Raffle draws were for golfing and non-golfing prizes all of which were exceptional.  Rick apologizes for forgetting the Ben-Gay this year.  Ouch!

Thank you to our Golfers, Sponsors, Golf Committee, and to Quarry Ridge Golf Course for hosting our event again this year.

Enjoy your summer and know that you did a good thing by helping the Vera Arterburn Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Looking forward to next year!
