All ‘FORE’ a Good Cause

WINCHESTER — The rain has finally (hopefully) stopped and golf season is officially here. And that means the annual Cloverdale Golf Classic is coming soon. The event takes place on Saturday, June 10, at Cloverdale Links Golf Course, rain or shine.

Ken Warner is the new Chair of the event and is no stranger to golf tournaments, having organized the successful Chris “Cookie” Thompson event for many years. “I joined the Cloverdale Golf Classic Committee as Chair this year to help as much as I can. The Chris “Cookie” Thompson Tournament gave portions of its proceeds to WDMH over the years, so it was a good transition because I already knew the importance of the cause.”

Ken notes that this year’s tournament will be lots of fun with a few surprises thrown in: “It’s a great scramble tournament with fun games, including a timed speed hole which everyone either loves or hates. On top of that, this group has a great reputation for raising as much as possible for the cause, WDMH, which I really admire. I hope people will call Cloverdale Links to book their foursome today, because it’s going to be another great day, with both lunch and dinner, fundraising and prizes – it’s hard to beat for just another Saturday!”

Proceeds from the event will be directed to the WDMH Foundation’s general equipment fund for the purchase of medical equipment like a Force FX Generator. A Force FX Generator is a small tool used by surgeons to control bleeding during surgical procedures. It cauterizes blood vessels.

“This is an annual event that we really look forward to and we can’t thank the organizers enough,” notes Kristen Casselman, Managing Director of the WDMH Foundation.

Tickets are $100 per person and include 18 holes of golf (scramble format), lunch, cart and your choice of a steak or chicken dinner. Dinner only is $40. Prizes and awards to follow dinner.
