2010 St. Mary Mercy "Tee it Up" Golf Classic
The 2010 St. Mary Mercy Livonia "Tee it Up" Golf Classic, presented by Phillips Services Industries, Inc., raised more than $220,000, exceeding the event fund-raising goal by more than $20,000. Robert Phillips, Event Chair, and Tim Belanger, Executive Committee Chair, led this successful outing. And, William Phillips served as Honorary Chair. Nearly 230 golfers played the Meadowbrook Country Club course, filling both the morning and afternoon golf flights of the June 21st event. Proceeds benefited the development of the Senior Emergency Department that was recently built as an addition to the Hospital's ER.
"The success of the event is so telling about the connection that our community has with St. Mary Mercy," said Chair Bob Phillips.
Mr. Phillips and St. Mary Mercy Hospital Development Director Sara Stauffer presented awards to the morning tournament winners: the men's team of Systematic Fire Prevention, women's team of the O'Connor Foursome and mixed team of Bickle & Comprehensive Care.
Vic Faust, Channel 7 Action News sportscaster and weekend anchor, was a celebrity guest and served as the emcee for the evening program and awards ceremony. Tim Belanger, SMMH President and CEO Dave Spivey and Sara Stauffer presented the awards to tournament winners: the men's team of the Ferrantino Foundation, women's team of Brownlee/Zieglar/Patel and mixed team of Cafaro/Casalou/Imesch/Wilson. The longest-drive and closest-to-thepin contest winners were also awarded for both the morning and afternoon rounds.
This is the third consecutive year that Phillips Services Industries, Inc. has served as the Presenting Sponsor. Longtime St. Mary Mercy partners Hearts of Livonia served as a Graphite Sponsor this year. "We have an outstanding committee and community that helped the Hospital surpass their goals for the event," said Committee Chair Tim Belanger. "We have set the bar high for 2012, but have no doubt that our committee will rise to the challenge."
