WESTFIELD - The Westfield Memorial Hospital Foundation/Hospital Associates will hold its 20th annual Golf Tournament on Friday, July 13.
The announcement was made by Co-Chairs WMHF board member Sid Hoyt and WMHF development director Patricia Gaughan DiPalma who anticipate that 'Friday the 13th' will be a good omen for the hospital foundation and its largest fundraiser.
The tournament, sponsored by the WMH Medical Staff, will be held on the Lake Course at Chautauqua Golf Club. There will be a "scramble format" shotgun start at noon with lunch serviced from 11 a.m. to noon. In addition, there will be a 5 p.m. cocktail reception followed by a prime rib dinner served by Andriaccio's at 6 p.m. Golfers are welcome to invite dinner guests at an additional fee.
As in the past 19 years of the tournament, this year's co-chairs predict much fun for the community hospital's great friends and supporters.
The festivities include gifts for each golfer, including a full-day pass to Chautauqua Golf Club's Learning Center, auctions, raffles and contests, including Closest-To-The-Pin and Longest Drive for both men and women golfers. Raffle tickets are now on sale for the chance to win any of several incredible prizes. The drawing will be held the day of the golf outing and may be purchased at the front desk in the lobby of the hospital, the Emergency Department entry desk, the WMH Foundation office in the hospital, Westfield Farmer's Market and any foundation or hospital board member. Winners need not be present.
