Tournament of Tradition
Golf Benefit Nets $22,000
The Mid-Columbia Health Foundation’s annual Tournament of Tradition
Golf Benefit at The Dalles Country Club brought in just over $22,000.
Proceeds are allocated to the Bridge to the Future Campaign which aims
to upgrade facilities and technology at MCMC ensuring the best healthcare
possible in the gorge.
Over 100 golfers took part in a variety of new games like cornhole, poker
and horseshoes. A record number of volunteers slots, 73 to be exact, helped
help make it all happen. The tournament concluded with a prime rib dinner
at the clubhouse where team prizes were awarded and raffle winners were
announced. The 50/50 poker game, which is always a tournament favorite,
went to Chris Schanno who graciously donated his half of the pot back,
adding to the event total.
New this year was a putting contest sponsored by Avenue Properties. At
a cost of $10 per putt, $450 was raised. The only contestant to sink the
putt was Doug Hattenhauer, he too donated his half of the pot back to
the Health Foundation.
Scramble winners from the tourney include three local businesses: Valvoline
Instant Oil Change, 1st place gross with a score of 60 and 1st place net, Curtis Homes with a score of 51.4. Griffith Motors took 2nd place net with a score of 51.6. Other winners include Dixie Schanno –
