Big smiles and good times characterized the Fry Healthcare Foundation’s 7th Annual Golf Tournament on June 12, 2015.
Fifty-four players, one moose calf, and several families of geese worked their way around 18-holes of golf at Mirror Lake Golf Course. The funds raised at the Golf Tournament will go towards the purchase of a portable ultrasound for the emergency room at Boundary Community Hospital.
Sponsors for the Golf Tournament are Rick and Janice Lozoya, Kootenai Health, Yellowstone Insurance Exchange, Idaho Forest Group, Gardiner Prime Angus Beef, Potlatch Credit Union, Pace-Kerby & Co. Inc., Columbia Bank, Kootenai River Inn, and Riverside Auto Center.
Community Title Company, Harvest Foods, Edward Jones, Safeway, Auburn Crest Hospice, Festival of Sandpoint, Sugar Plum Floral, Boardwalk Boutique, Picturesque, StoneRidge Golf Community, Twin Lakes Village, Silverwood Theme Park, Larson’s Clothing, and Henry-Griffitts donated prizes, cash, and items.
A hole-in-one at hole #8 ensured the winning of a Yamaha Side by Side, 4-Wheeler valued at $14,000 donated by Boundary Tractor Co. One drive by Boundary Community Hospital Administrator, Craig Johnson came close, but, unfortunately, nobody made the winning hole-in-one.
Tournament Winners are Travis Hinthorn and Steve Nelson, First Flight, Dick and Mike Villeli, Second Flight; and Linda Hiatt and Karen English, Third Flight.
The Golf Ball Drop, with a total of 375 balls purchased, was a crowd-pleaser. LifeFlight Network, a medical transport company, donated a Visio 55-inch Smart TV as the prize for the golf ball that rolled into, or came closest to, hole #9. Lana Hersinger is this year’s lucky winner.
