Each year, the Grand View Auxiliary Golf Tournament, typically held in early August, brings together organizations, community leaders, businesses, physicians and the leadership of Grand View Health, to raise funds to supporting growth of new facilities and health initiatives. As many as 164 golfers compete in a four-person scramble at the 18-hole course at Indian Valley Country Club. Players also enjoy a sumptuous gourmet meal prepared by the club’s chef. New sponsors are always welcome and invitations to both sponsor a hole or participate in the event are sent by the Auxiliary each year in early spring.
In 2021, the champion of the event was former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Tommy Greene, from the 1993 World Series team, along with Howard Eisenbrock, MD, William Evans and Dave Gorman. The event successfully raised more than $100,000 and broke all previous records for funds raised by the tournament.
The event also marked the kick-off of the Auxiliary’s Car Raffle fundraiser. The Grand View Auxiliary is selling $100 raffle tickets for a chance to win $30,000 towards any car or truck at any Bergey’s dealership. A winner can also elect to choose a cash option for the prize of $25,000. Only 650 tickets will be sold.
Many thanks to our title sponsors Sodexo and Univest, along with 80 other loyal sponsors. The “Martha Otto Putting Contest” sponsored by MRA Group was dedicated this year in honor of Martha’s efforts over the years, functioning as the Chair of the Auxiliary Golf Tournament. Players had the opportunity to sink a hole-in-one putt for a chance to win autographed sports memorabilia.
Proceeds of the Grand View Auxiliary Golf Tournament in 2021 will become part of the Auxiliary’s annual gift to support the 190,000-square-foot addition to the main hospital building. The new building will feature all private patient rooms, new operating rooms and a trauma-ready emergency department.
