Wilson Foundation Holds 18th Golf Classic
Attention Golfers - Slots Still Open
(SIDNEY)-There are still slots available for golfers to participate in the 2012 Wilson Memorial Hospital Foundation Golf Classic, scheduled for Monday, July 9.  The outing will take place at the Shelby Oaks Golf Club, Sidney, with proceeds going toward the Wilson Foundation’s endowment fund to help support the Hospital’s future health care needs.
Titanium sponsors for this year’s annual golf event include: Advanced Composites, Inc.; Dale Peterson and Associates, Inc.; Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc.; Premier Physician Services, Inc.; NK Logistics; and N K Telco. 
            “Since the first event in 1995, Wilson’s golf outing has grown considerably and is now one of the premier golf events in the area.” said Dale Peterson, Chairman for the event. “Fortunately we have always enjoyed strong community and business support. In past years, we have had all openings filled before we could even promote the outing, but the economic environment the last few years has impacted our community and our event. We still have some open slots that we would love to fill.”
The handicapped 18-hole scramble will begin with a shotgun start at 11:00 a.m. and registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Kettering Anesthesia Associates, Inc. is sponsoring brunch from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Beverages on each Par 3 hole are provided by Orthopedic Associates of SW Ohio. Cart sponsorships are also available and allow a business or individual to sponsor a cart for $100 and, in turn, receive very visible promotion on the cart and in the program. Cocktails and dinner will be at 5:00 p.m., followed by awards and prizes. Dinner, underwritten by N K Telco, includes a prime rib and chicken buffet and is catered by The Spot Restaurant. 
The “closest to the pin” prize this year is one week at a Westin Resort villa on Hilton Head Island. Details about the trip will be provided at the golf outing. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three teams, longest putt, and the longest drive. Door and raffle prizes will be available for all golfers. The winner of the putting contest sponsored by Dale Peterson & Associates, Inc. will win a $200 cash prize.
Sponsorship levels include: Titanium level $3,100, includes four golfers; Platinum level, over $1,100, includes four golfers; Diamond level, $1,100, includes four golfers; Gold level, $825, includes three golfers; Silver level, $550, includes two golfers; and Bronze level, $275, includes one golfer.

It is wonderful to see so many come together for the benefit of our community and Wilson Memorial Hospital,” said Bonnie Faulkner, executive director of the Wilson Foundation. “Since inception, the Foundation Golf Outing has netted nearly $643,000 for the hospital.”
