Despite the cooler-than-normal temperatures, sponsors of the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation’s 10th Annual Golf Tournament turned out on Monday for beer and brats on the course and to contribute more than $60,000 to expand Cardiac Services at Phelps County Regional Medicare Center (PCRMC).


After the final tally of donations is completed, the fundraiser should succeed in netting more than $60,000, which will be used to expand Cardiac Services at PCRMC, said Suzanne Paule, director of Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation and Public Relations.


The four-person scramble tournament featured a hole-in-one contest at each par-3 hole.


First, second and third place plaques were given to the highest-scoring teams. (Winners had not been announced at press time.)

Entry fees were $200 a person and included a gourmet lunch box, access to two beverage carts, a cocktail hour after the tournament and dinner.


All players also received a golf shirt, promotional give-aways and other favors from the sponsors that held an estimated value of $65 per player.


Additionally, door prize winners, a Mulligan/Tossigan winner and a silent auction was held.
