LANCASTER — Weeks Medical Center Auxiliary held its 28th annual golf scramble on June 3 at the Maplewood Country Club in Bethlehem.
More than 107 participants from the surrounding communities competed in a day of golf, lunch, raffles, prizes, and an auction to raise money in support of Weeks Medical Center. The scramble raised $15,500, which was donated to the hospital for the purchase of a GildeScope video laryngoscope for use in the emergency department. The GlideScope provides rapid first-pass intubation for improved patient care and lowers risks of complications.
Several flight sponsors contributed to the scramble, including Beattie Enterprises Inc., Daniel Hebert Inc., Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire, Sean Tracey Associates, and Sulloway and Hollis.
The Weeks Medical Center Auxiliary was founded in 1920 and has served as a non-profit volunteer organization to benefit Weeks Medical Center and the surrounding communities through fundraising, service, education and health-related programs. Auxiliary efforts have raised more than $465,000 for the hospital.
“Every year the Weeks Auxiliary Golf Scramble offers a fun way for local residents to support their community and Weeks Medical Center,” said Margo Cliche, volunteer services manager and auxiliary member. “While the weather wasn’t perfect this year, everyone played through and helped us raise much needed funds. A special thank you to our flight sponsors as well as our many hole sponsors, donors and golfers who contribute to supporting Weeks Medical Center. A big thanks to our host, the Maplewood Country Club, and to the Weeks Medical Center Volunteer Department, management team, and staff for their continued support along with the many auxiliary members and volunteers, especially the tournament committee members, who contribute so much to the success of the scramble.”
