Sunland group donates to OMC Foundation thru ‘Drive for the Cure’ Tournament

Sunland Golf and Country Club gave a check recently for $6,800 to the Olympic Medical Center Foundation to help local women receive mammograms when they do not have insurance or the means to pay for them.

Since 2011, Sunland has given a total of $36,900 to OMC to support this cause. An anonymous donor has helped reach this goal by donating via a matching fund since 2012.

The “Drive for a Cure” golf tournament and luncheon was held on Sept. 16, with 72 players participating in the tourney and 81 attending the luncheon. The game was a modified scramble for both nine and 18 holes of golf. Additional fundraising was accomplished through a putting contest, raffles for fifteen gift baskets, hole sponsors, the sale of mulligans and magic putts, and donations.

First place winners for 18 holes were Dave Bates, Judy Flanders, Tom Isitt and Gene Mattson. With a tie for first place in the nine-hole event each was the team of Jim Coulter, Gene Collet, Sandra Ruby and Pat Charters, and the team of Pete and Christie Wilson and Linda Collet.

Hole-in-one putters on the putting green each won a bottle of wine. Crazy Drive winners were Anne Hester and Jerry Green. Ray DeJong and Nonnie Dunphy won the closest-to-the-pin.
