$1 million shot
This year’s event featured major hole-in-one prizes including a million dollar shot, $10,000 prize, golf cart, golf equipment, electronics equipment and airline tickets.
Bob Weber, representing Radiology Services of North Platte had his name drawn for the million dollar shot. Unfortunately the shot came up short. No hole-in-one prizes were won during the day.
A total of 17 teams played in the benefit which began in 2008 as a fundraiser for the Chase County Hospital Foundation.
“We had a great day for golf and appreciate the support from area businesses for this event,” according to Randy Vlasin, Executive Director of the Chase County Hospital Foundation.
Event likely to net $10,000
Vlasin said total dollars netted from this event will be in the $10,000 range once all expenses and sponsorships are in. These funds are used to help purchase equipment and meet other needs at Chase County Community Hospital and Clinics.
They also conducted a silent charity auction as part of the annual event which contributed $2,900 towards the total. Vlasin expressed his gratitude to all of the sponsors, golfers, auction item donors, bidders and buyers.
He complimented Donna Werkele and her Enders Lake Golf Course grounds crew. They spent many long hours getting the course ready for Saturday after the flooding from last week’s storm. “They did a great job,” stated Vlasin.
Vlasin credited staff members from the Chase County Community Hospital and Clinics and the hospital foundation board who volunteered to make the event successful.
Members of the Chase County Hospital Foundation board include Russ Pankonin, Sam McNair, Tonda McGarr, Jill Moline, Denise Smith, Ray Lindekugel, Bill Bauerle of Imperial and Lola Jones of Enders.
Vlasin said the foundation is looking for one to two members from the Wauneta area would like to serve on the board.
