On October 2, 2021, the Bennett and Albert County Health Care Foundation partnered with the Eric Steeves Memorial Charity Golf Tournament in support of healthcare. The four-person scramble golf tournament held at the Hillsborough Golf Course draws the most golfers of any tournament at the course. The 20th anniversary event attracted 156 golfers from around the region to compete for prizes including best overall score, longest drive, closest to the hole and longest putt in men’s and ladies’ categories.
Tournament organizers Danny Jonah and Kim Hoar of Hillsborough work tirelessly each year to organize the event that supports community charities. Local and area businesses give generously each year to support the event that has raised more than $80,000 over twenty years.
This year’s tournament raised $7,000 for healthcare-related programs and initiatives in Hillsborough. As well, the Bennett and Albert County Health Care Foundation held a prize draw during the event. A maximum of 300 tickets were sold for two prizes that included an Algonquin Resort two-night vacation golf and whale watching package, and a 55-inch Smart TV. The vacation package was won by Nancy Smith of Weldon and the Smart TV went to Mark Nelson of Hopewell Cape. Thank you to all who purchased tickets which helped raise $4,225 in support of area healthcare.
The Board of Directors of the Bennett and Albert County Health Care Foundation would like to express their appreciation to Danny Jonah and Kim Hoar for their hard work and dedication, to Jason Pugh and his team at the Hillsborough Golf Course for hosting the tournament, to the many sponsors that made the tournament a huge success, and to all the golfers for their participation.
