NMH Golf Tournament
The 14th annual Golf Tournament co-sponsored by Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and
Wilmington Trust will be held Friday, Sept. 15, 12 p.m., at the Seaford Golf and
Country Club in Seaford. The tournament will be a scramble format. ReneŽ Morris,
coordinator of this year's event, expects a full field again as the golfers look
forward to the fun-filled event.
With the help of individuals and corporate sponsors, last year's tournament raised
more than $20,000 for Nanticoke Memorial Hospital. Proceeds will be used for the
Hospital's endowment fund.
Morris is pleased to report that early support has already ensured that the cost
for participants would not increase over last year, and delicious food, beverages
and extensive door prizes would complement the afternoon of golf.
Anyone interested in individual reservations or learning more about the corporate
packages should contact Rene Morris at 302-629-6611, ext. 2404.
