  • The HPA Insurance – Casualty Division team shot a 11-under-par 60 to win the Mixed Flight Division. Members of the team were Ceilia Fitzgerald, Tom Barth, Dean Miller and Jimmie Fitzgerald.

The 40th Annual Foundation Golf Outing of The Bellevue Hospital (TBH) was held on July 22 at Green Hills Golf Course in Clyde, with the proceeds to benefit the Hospital Foundation.

“I would personally like to thank all of the individuals, groups, and businesses who supported our golf outing during this unprecedented year,” commented Dennis Sabo, TBH Foundation Director. “This outing has long been a very successful event because of those people. Last year alone, the Foundation Golf Outing raised over $25,000 which allowed the hospital to make equipment purchases for several hospital departments, and this year was just as successful.”  

“Also, a big thank you to Green Hills and the Crockett family, all of my TBH volunteers and co-workers, and to our employees for all of the support,” continued Sabo.
