Brooks Memorial Hospital is one step closer to the acquisition of new equipment for its Surgical Services Department thanks to this year's annual golf tournament. The 19th Annual Brooks Memorial Hospital Golf Tournament, held at Shorewood Country Club, raised more than $35,000 toward the purchase of a specially designed orthopedic surgery table.
This year, 112 golfers competed for tournament prizes, as Honorary Tournament Chairman Dr. Raja S. Gopalan opened the tournament with a ceremonial tee off. Winners of the four-person scramble tournament were Timothy Borzilleri, Alex Deering, Joseph Hallmark and Mike Kelley. The tournament included all day refreshments, a huge basket raffle, several fun golf contests and a prime rib buffet dinner.
NRG Dunkirk Power LLC was the Title Sponsor for the Brooks tournament. Other major sponsors included Fredonia Place, Lake Shore Orthopedic, Lake Erie Regional Health System Medical Staff, Nash Pharmacy Services, Robert Basil Chevrolet/Buick/Cadillac, Lake Shore Savings Bank and Outsource Receivables Management.
