Yearly golf scramble brings in thousands for charity

BOILERMAKERS FROM LOCAL 105 (Piketon, Ohio) donated $5,000, the proceeds of their annual four-man golf scramble, to the Southern Ohio Medical Center Hospice in early July. The tournament, held on June 25 at the Shawnee Golf Course in Portsmouth, Ohio, was their 18th golf fundraiser and their 10th consecutive donation to SOMC Hospice. L-105 Business Manager/ Secretary-Treasurer Scott Hammond said after the first eight years of the tournament, members in L-105 voted to donate all proceeds to the hospice. Over the history of the event, they’ve raised more than $50,000.

Local 667 (Charleston, West Virginia) and Local 40 (Elizabethtown, Kentucky) participate, and also sponsor the tournament, which draws people from other crafts in addition to Boilermakers. This year there were 26, four-person teams. Hammond said they had to turn people away. “It’s a very popular event among our membership,” he noted. “It’s the best show in town.”
