Golf: Sunland tourney raises $14K for Olympic Medical Center

Local healthcare got another boost from an annual Sequim golf tournament that saw players raise $14,000.

Sunland Women’s Golf Association’s Drive for the Cure Tourney in September drew 100 players to raise funds for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation to support cancer screening and diagnostic services for men and women on the North Olympic Peninsula who do not have insurance or means to pay for the procedures.

In 2011, organizers of the tourney held at Sunland Golf & Country Club made a decision to keep money they raised locally, and since that time — with the help of an anonymous Sunland donor who matched funds — the golf association has raised $80,773 for the OMC Foundation.

This year’s tourney features included a $5 donation to have Sequim High School junior Ben Sweet tee off for one’s team at the first hole, a $5 fee to drive from the 150-yard mark on the par five hole No. 12, magic putts and mulligans and 12 unique raffle baskets.

Major tournament sponsors included Sound Community Bank, Windermere Real Estate, Dan Fryer of Fryer Insurance, Rainshadow Laundry and Car Wash and Harbinger Winery.
