First Federal tops Event "Fore" Caring

GREENSBURG — Twenty-five teams took to the Greensburg Country Club Golf Course Wednesday to battle sand-traps, roughs, and high temperatures — all to benefit the Hospital Foundation of Decatur County and the projects Decatur County Memorial Hospital.

According to Hospital Foundation Director Bryan Robbins, 100 golfers participated in the event, now in its eighth year. The Event “Fore” Caring featured a “Draw ‘Fore’ Poker” Game, hole-in-one contests, skills competitions, and a chance to putt for an iPad2, in addition to the tournament itself.

Scores were close, but it was the First Federal Team, consisting of Tom Stewart, Daryl Smith, Brad Smith and Blake O’Mara that pulled out the victory, shooting a 26 under par 44. The BKD Team, made up of Andy Rinzel, Brian Daeger, Angela Belter, and Tom Walker took second with a score of 46, and 3rd place was captured by the team from Levensteins’/Abbey Carpet represented by Randy Domingo, Jim Wenning, Mark Wickens, and Eddy Lee, which shot a 47.

This was Robbins’ first Golf Outing as the Hospital Foundation Director, and he was glad it was a success: “It was stressful to plan, but the time and support we received from hospital employees, volunteers and others really made it run smoothly. Together with the generous participation from our teams and sponsors, it’s a great snapshot of caring people coming together for a worthy cause.” Robbins also took the time to promote the work of the Foundation: “It’s through events like these that the Hospital Foundation is able to support the projects and programs within the hospital that benefit the health of our entire community. From programs such as free Flu vaccinations, the Re-Charge program in our local schools, or EMS training, to larger-scale projects such as the new Med/Surg unit — we understand that a healthy community is a prosperous community, and Decatur County Memorial Hospital is a leader in that regard. Supporting the Hospital Foundation ensures this continued progress.”
