Several teams emerged victorious at the Parkview Huntington Golf Classic, held Aug. 24 at Norwood Golf Course, in Huntington.

The foursome of Derek Dyer, EJ Carroll, Kaine Carroll and Rob Harmon carded the day’s low score of 55 to capture first place in the Men’s Division.

First place in the Ladies’/Mixed Division, with a score of 58, went to the Fort Wayne Radiology team of Gary Randle, Kelli Lesh, Ed Beckner and Randy Chin.

The Ladies’ Division was won by the foursome of Megan Bobay, Darlene Stanley, Megan Reckelhoff and Ann Davis, who finished with 64.

In the drive accuracy contest, held on the second hole, Jim Walker was the men’s winner while Megan Bobay was the winner for the ladies.

Other course skills contest prizes went to Jim Reid, for the longest putt on the 18th hole, and to Don Stoffel, whose drive was closest to the pin on the par-three No. 8.

The competition, in its 27th year, was organized by the Parkview Huntington Foundation and saw Moake Park Group serve as the presenting sponsor. Proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase of a Biodex Balance System for Parkview Huntington Hospital’s Rehabilitation and Wellness Department. The multi-use device will enhance the department’s fall-risk screening capabilities and therapists’ ability to evaluate and provide treatment for patients of all ages who have balance issues.

The late Holly Sale, director of the hospital’s Rehabilitation and Wellness Department, was honored with the 2017 Parkview Huntington Foundation PARtner award. At the ceremony, Parkview Huntington Foundation Director Mike Perkins noted her significant contributions to the event’s success over the years as a member of the organizing committee, a volunteer, and a sponsor and auction gift contributor.

More than 20 hospital employees and community members volunteered to assist at the event, which was capped off by a live auction conducted by Scheerer McCulloch Auctioneers.
