The 13th Annual Barnesville Hospital Auxiliary Golf Scramble was held on Friday, August 14th, 2015. A beautiful sunny day at Belmont Hills Country Club was a welcoming facet for both golfers and volunteers. 25 teams participated in the event that has become one of the premier golf events in the Valley.
The golf scramble would not have been possible without the numerous volunteers. Hospital employees, Auxiliary members, and other volunteers contributed numerous hours throughout the day to keep the event running smoothly. Performing tasks such as registering golfers to manning beverage stations, their hard work should be commended in making this year=s event another success.
This scramble would also not have been possible without the gracious support of many local business partners, hospital employees, and other friends of Barnesville Hospital. The sponsors for the event helped with donations of cash, food, door prizes, and much more. These sponsors should also be applauded for their efforts.
