A Swinging Good Time

The event, once again at Green Valley Country Club, was another sell-out success according to Jane Schilling, director of volunteer services.

A quartet of golfers (at left) including NorthBay Healthcare Foundation Board Members Dave Bast, Chris Sweeney, Candy Pierce and Dr. Lee Freeman were joined by some 165 other golfers and tennis players to fill the field. The Guild’s biggest fund-raising event of the year had a “Let the Games Begin” theme, appropriate since it came just before the start of the Summer Olympics. Festivities and extra fund-raising opportunities were scattered throughout the golf course. The golfers were more than generous, all for the benefit of NorthBay’s Trauma Services. “On behalf of the volunteers, I want to say how proud we are to host one of the most successful golf tournaments in Solano County,” says Schilling. “This year’s proceeds, of about $42,000, mark the second year of a five-year commitment to NorthBay Trauma Services. We are proud to support a service that is so important to our community.”
