Memorial Foundation Inaugural Golf Tournament Raises Thousands for Neonatal Ventilators

Memorial Foundation’s Inaugural Golf Tournament was held on June 12 at the St. Clair Country Club and raised over $74,000 to purchase neonatal ventilators for Memorial’s tiniest patients.

A single neonatal ventilator costs $50,000 and is used to help create an ideal environment for newborns to relax, sleep, and grow while minimizing as many risks as possible to their physical and mental development.

“Thank you to all of our sponsors and participants for making our first tournament a huge success,” said Anne Thomure, Memorial Foundation’s executive director. “It was wonderful to see so much support from the community and area businesses.”


Flight A – First place: Randy Ganim, Bryan Ganim, Kevin Meder, and Randy Phillips (score 56); second place: Kevin Roberts, Lori Schreiner, Mike McManus, and Mike Riley Jr. (score 61); third place: Ryan Altmansberger, Shane Moskop, David Miller, and Joe Riley (score 61).

Flight B – First place: Mike Leopold, Dan Nester, Smith McGehee, and Pat Mulcahey (score 64); second place: Kevin Pesko, Ron Stephens, Mary Reuter, and George West (score 65); third place: Otto Roberts, Mark Heffernann, Matt Hill, and William Willis (score 65).

Flight C – First place: George Marifian, Nick Maduri, Marilyn Rossi, and Kevin Welch (score 68); second place: Jared Kreig, Taylor Bailey, Kary Kerr, and Ryan Monken (score 68); third place: Greg Cundiff, Doug Distler, Jay Maher, and Barry McClure (score 70). 

Randy Freeman, Marc Vanderweele, Keith King, Rick Ringwalk, and Marilyn Rossi all won prizes in the closest to the hole contests; Randy Phillips won the longest putt; Mike McManus won the straightest drive, and Tony Soukenik won the putting contest with a hole-in-one.
