Rescheduled from June 7 due to rain, the tournament, jointly sponsored by Univest and Sodexo, was a celebration of Grand View Hospital’s centennial year and raised more than $30,000 to support the hospital in its mission to meet the community’s healthcare needs.
The tournament hosted 132 golfers including business professionals, physicians, employees, friends, and supporters of the hospital.

Participants enjoyed a hearty luncheon and a dinner buffet, and were treated to live entertainment by guitarist Craig Thatcher and violinist Nyke Van Wyk.
Auxilian and event chair Martha Otto said, “Perfect weather, great food, and world-class entertainment came together this summer to help us raise money to help fund one of the most worthwhile institutions in our community. We thank our many sponsors and patrons for their continued support. With their assistance, Grand View will continue to aid our community well into the next century.”
