09182021 Robert S. Adcock Golf Challenge

Robert S. Adcock, CEO of Springfield Hospital, shares thanks to participants and sponsors for their support of the 2021 Golf Challenge.

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. — Springfield Hospital hosted its 21st Annual Golf Challenge Sept. 14 at the Fox Run Golf Club in Ludlow, Vt. Proceeds from this year’s fundraising event go to the annual giving campaign to support the Defibrillator Equipment Fund.

Ninety tournament participants enjoyed a variety of competitions on the course in addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play. A 2021 Cadillac was up for grabs for a hole-in-one on hole 8, thanks to Springfield Buick GMC Cadillac; and $10,000 was available on hole 17 for a hole-in-one, thanks to Ludlow Insurance Agency. We did not give either of these big prizes away this year, but we could not have asked for a nicer day to play golf in the splendid beauty of Vermont.

Winners in the A and B Flights were as follows:

A Flight

— 1st Low Gross: Dan Patria, Mary Patria, Jeff Matulonis, Cole Lewis.

More than 40 sponsors and raffle prize donors made this year’s tournament a fundraising success. The tournament sponsors this year at the $1,000 level were Connecticut Valley Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Ellen Lander/Renaissance Benefit Advisors, Kinney Drugs Foundation, NFP, SunSoil, and The Richards Group.

“Many thanks go to our sponsors and participants for their generous support; and to the staff and volunteers that organized this event,” said Robert Adcock, CEO of Springfield Hospital. “We also extend our thanks and appreciation to Fox Run Golf Club for preparing a course that the golfers certainly enjoyed. It was great to see so many golfers across the staging area as they prepared to play their round of golf, and I am grateful to all who made this event a fundraising success.”
