The Madelia Health Foundation 18th Annual Golf Outing was held on Tuesday, June 6th. This tournament has been extremely popular and highly successful for Madelia Health. 76 golfers (a full roster) were on the course in support of Madelia Health. The golf outing raised over $20,000, the most in our history for this event! The proceeds will be used to purchase new surgical equipment.

The “Hole In One” Contest was again held on Hole 8, but no one was able to claim the $25,000 toward a Ford vehicle, sponsored by Madelia Ford and Pioneer Bank. On the Green for 1/2 the Pot Contest Winner: Garrett Freeman ($220).

The Foundation awarded cash prizes to the first, ninth and sixteenth place teams. The First Place Team for the second year in a row was Team Cerny! Team Cerny graciously donated back their winnings! The 9th Place Team was Madelia Health’s Varsity Team, and the 16th Place Team was Madelia Health’s Party of Fore.
