L-105 keeps annual fundraiser going to benefit local hospice

Local 105 BM-ST presents the Southern Ohio Medical Center Hospice of Portsmouth with their donation.

Local 105 (Chillicothe, Ohio) held its 28th annual golf tournament at the Elk’s Country Club in McDermott, Ohio on June 28th.

Around 15 years ago, the locals golf committee decided to turn the annual scramble into a charity event benefiting the Southern Ohio Medical Center Hospice of Portsmouth. Each year, the local achieves a successful turn out with help from the community, sponsors and other Boilermakers. This year, team Enerfab won in dramatic fashion with a sudden death playoff over Millhuff-Stang CPA after finishing the round at 14 under par.

The golf outing usually raises a few thousand in donations. Local 105 BM-ST Scott Hammond said he’s always happy to host the event and the local continues to be satisfied with the outcome. “We are very proud of the donations we’ve been able to raise for this worthy organization.”

This year they the local donated $3,000 to SOMC Hospice. Other locals contributing included L-40 (Elizabethtown, Kentucky), L-60 (Peoria, Illinois), L-647 (Minneapolis), L-107 (Milwaukee), L-363 (East St. Louis, Illinois), L-169 (Detroit), L-667 (Charleston, West Virginia) and L-744 (Cleveland).
