DELHI - The Delhi branch of the Norfolk General Hospital/ Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home Volunteer Association hosted another successful golf tournament last week.
The tournament, held at the Delhi Golf and Country Club on Aug. 15, was expected to raise more than $4,500 for the association.
The funds will be used to by equipment at the hospital.
Eighty golfers took part in the tournament this year, and after running for nearly two decades there are a lot of friendly faces that return year after year.
“There are a few new people, but it’s many of the same, which is great,” said Pat Cooke, one of the event’s organizers.
Norfolk County Mayor Dennis Travale is one of those faces; he plays at the tournament every year.
Cooke said the tournament is a “FUN-draiser,” everyone is just there to have a good time while raising money for a good cause.
“It’s not a major, big competition,” said Cooke. There are very few rules and everyone who participates receives a prize.
Prizes were also awarded to participants able to complete special tasks throughout the tournament.
While Cooke prefers to stay at the clubhouse during the event, co-organizer Maureen Ebdon also participates.
“I’ve always played,” she laughed before the tournament began.
After playing 18 holes participants were treated to free massages and a meal at the clubhouse.
Ebdon and Cooke would like to thank all the businesses that helped sponsor the event.
