The MED Foundation of Mercer Health held its annual Esmonde/Homan Memorial Golf Outing on June 14 at the Mercer County Elks Golf Club to raise funds for the organization’s scholarship program. 

This year, 35 teams of men, women and co-ed participants competed. The event began with a “golf ball drop” 50/50 drawing, raising an additional $2,500 for the scholarship fund. The winning ticket was purchased by Kathy Muhlenkamp of Arcanum.

The Esmonde/Homan Memorial Golf Outing would not be possible without the support of the golfers, volunteers and generous sponsors listed below.

Next year’s golf outing is scheduled for June 12, 2020. For more information, please contact Deb Hemmelgarn, MED Foundation Director, at 419-678-5679.
