NMH Golf Tournament Sept. 15
The 14th annual Golf Tournament co-sponsored by Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and Wilmington Trust is this Friday, Sept. 15, 12 p.m., at the Seaford Golf and Country Club in Seaford. Rene 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.

Teams of four players will compete for various prizes that have been donated by local and national businesses. During the course of the day, enthusiastic golfers will have numerous chances to test their skills by competing in contests for Longest Drive, Closet-To-The Pin, Hit-The Green and a Hole-In-One. One lucky player will leave the tournament with a "Getaway Weekend for Two."
Anyone interested in individual reservations or learning more about the corporate packages should contact Rene Morris at 302-629-6611, ext. 2404.
