Parkview Foundation Golf Classic names winners

Posted: Thursday, July 3, 2014

For the third year in a row, a foursome captained by Dr. Derek Dyer posted the low score of the day to capture the first place in the Parkview Huntington Golf Classic, held Thursday, June 26, at LaFontaine Golf Club.

Proceeds from the 24th annual event purchased two portable infusion units and an obstetrical patient stretcher for Parkview Huntington Hospital. Parkview Huntington Foundation organized the event, which attracted 30 foursomes. More than 20 hospital employees and community members volunteered to assist throughout the day.

“This was among the most competitive outings we’ve had,” said Foundation Director Mike Perkins. “Three teams tied for the low score and we had to revert to two tie-breakers to determine the winner.

“Support from the golfers, sponsors, and auction contributors helped the foundation meet its goal of raising funds for the infusion devices and the stretcher,” he added. “Scheerer McCulloch Auctioneers conducted another successful live auction at the event.”

Richard Moake, president of The Moake Park Group architects, of Fort Wayne, was named the 2014 Parkview Huntington Foundation PARtner for his contributions to the continued success of this event and to the foundation. Moake led the firm’s design of Parkview Huntington Hospital, and The Moake Park Group has generously supported the golf event and Parkview Huntington Foundation through the years.

The golf foursome of Dyer, EJ Carroll, Chris Hoke, and Josh Peters carded a low round of 56 and won in a tie-breaker over the team of Dr. Craig McBride, Lee Cutting, Mark Powe, and Jason Kennedy. Finishing third was the foursome of Tim Allen, Ben Davis, Chad Daugherty, and Brad Ludlow, representing Parkview Huntington Family YMCA.

John Mignone, playing with a foursome from DeLaney, Hartburg, Roth & Garrott, was the winner of the gentlemen’s drive accuracy contest on the 4th hole. The ladies’ winner in that competition was Ashley Gonterman, playing in a foursome representing Huntington University.
