WINDSOR, VT – Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, a non-profit community hospital, recently held its annual Mt. Ascutney Hospital (MAH) Golf Classic at the Woodstock Inn and Resort Club, an 18-hole masterpiece designed by legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., surrounded by panoramic views of the Kedron Valley. The tournament attracted 115 golfers and raised over $40,000 for Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center. Proceeds generated from the event support priority needs of the hospital, helping the hospital provide outstanding health care services to residents throughout the region.
“We are so grateful to all our sponsors, golfers, staff and volunteers who made the MAH Classic a success once again,” stated Kevin W. Donovan, CEO of Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center. “This event is our largest on-going fundraiser and the contributions from our sponsors, golfers, and auction bidders support the growth and development of programs we offer our community. On behalf of Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, I thank all of our participants and sponsors for their generosity and commitment that made this year’s Classic such a success.”
The MAH Classic has seen steady growth since its inception in 1983. In 2013, more than thirty-five sponsors contributed to the event. They were led by Championship Sponsors Mascoma Savings Bank and Sodexo and by Masters Level Sponsors Cerner Corporation and Engelberth Construction. Great Eastern Radio was the media sponsor for the event, airing more than 500 public service announcements on its five Upper Valley radio stations to promote the tournament and recognize the sponsors.
There were many prize winners at the Classic, however, the most excited may have been Richard Ackerman of Red River Computer Company. He won a set of 4 Yokohama tires in the “closest to the tires” competition sponsored by Tire Warehouse, in addition to winning the annual 50/50 raffle. A foursome from The Richards Group won the low gross title at the 2013 MAH Classic for the third year in a row, while a team from Morgan Stanley - Lebanon placed first in the low net competition. Teams from DEW Construction and Keene Medical Products finished second and third in the low net competition, respectively.
