GREENSBURG – Two-time Class 3A champion Greensburg Pirates boy’s head basketball coach, Stacy Meyer, will join Our Hospice of Decatur/Shelby’s Decatur Golf Tournament participants on June 18 at the Greensburg Country Club as a celebrity guest golfer to raise funds for Decatur County area patients and their families.

Adding to the excitement of the competition, Don Meyer Ford (Greensburg) is offering a chance to win a 2014 Ford Fusion to be awarded to the lucky participant who makes a hole-in-one on Hole #17.

Also being offered by Don Meyer Ford are prize packages for holes-in-one including: Hole #2 a “Stay & Play” two-night golf package at The Revere Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada (does not include airfare); Hole #10, a three-day/two-night vacation package at the Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Michigan (does not include airfare); and Hole#5, a Tour Edge Fairway Wood.

On behalf of Our Hospice patients and their families in the Decatur County service area, tournament co-chairs John Nieman and Jack (Jay) and Teresa Hatton and the 2014 Golf Tournament Committee thank the community, sponsors, players and volunteers for their support of the annual event. Our Hospice and the committee co-chairs also extend their thanks to committee members: Dottie Bilbrey, Sheila Doerflinger, Guy Folkman, Richard Gibson, Peg Nieman, Greta Solgere, Tammie Spurlock, Jim Sturges, Dr. Art Turner, Mark Wickens and Sharon Wickens for their contributions of time and talent to this golf tournament.

Coinciding with the Decatur Golf Tournament, the Tee Off “Fore!” Our Hospice of Decatur/Shelby fundraising campaign begins June 1 and runs through June 30. Canisters sporting the Tee Off “Fore!” Our Hospice logo will be located at a number of Greensburg, Rushville and Westport businesses. For a donation of $1 or more, contributors may sign a “paper tee” that will be displayed at the participating business.
