Memorial Hospital Open Golf Tournament Takes Place

July 26, 2019

North Conway, NH – Memorial Hospital’s Open Golf Tournament was held July 19 at North Conway Country Club. Over $40,000 was raised to support Behavioral Health services in the Emergency Department.

Cider Berry, Rick Luciano, Josh Anderson and Rick Jasinski played on the Men’s winning team in the tournament scramble. Mary Vigeant, Arlene Mrozowski, Patty Keane and Amy Russo were on the Women’s winning team; and Christine and Jack Rowe, Fred O’Neill and Mike Murphy placed first in the mixed team contest.

The tournament featured closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests. Closest-to-the-pin winners were Gene Bergoffen, Bayard Kennett, Dan Rollins, Joanne Shaw and Joan Aubrey. Men’s and women’s longest drive winners were Dan Luchetti and Evelyn Rivers.

Melody Nester, Communications and Development Manager at Memorial Hospital, stated, “We are delighted to have celebrated the thirty-ninth year of the Memorial Hospital Open Golf Tournament. Its longevity and success is due to the fantastic support from teams and players who take part each year, as well as the corporate sponsors that make this a successful event.”

Over the past five years the number of Behavioral Health patients seen in the Emergency Department has grown significantly according to Matt Dunn, Memorial Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer. The proceeds of this year’s tournament will be the beginning of a community-based effort to support the needs of this vulnerable population.
