ETMC golf ball drop


On behalf of the ETMC Cancer Institute and the ETMC Foundation, thank you to everyone who supported the 2015 ETMC Golf Ball Drop. We raised close to $4,000. The drop is held each year in conjunction with the Henry M. Bell, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament, and we use the combined funds raised to benefit our ETMC cancer programs and services.

Proceeds from last year’s tournament helped us provide educational classes for men and women about different types of cancer, the importance of early detection and advances in treatments. We were also able to purchase equipment to help doctors make more specific measurements in breast cancer patients. This increased the effectiveness of treatments and has already helped save the lives of many in the community.

And without further adieu…The winners are:

Grand Prize: $1,000 Cash. Ball #785 purchased by Jason Cathy, a tournament player.

2nd Prize: $500 Travel Masters Gift Certificate. Ball #711 purchased by Rita Carroll, a Financial Services employee.

3rd Prize: $100 of restaurant gift certificates. Ball #416 purchased by Matthew Rudolph, DO in Athens and Tyler Orthopedics.

4th Prize: 1-hour massage at the ETMC Olympic Center. Ball #789 purchased by Jason Cathy, a tournament player.

5th Prize: ETMC Gift Pack. Ball #445 purchased by Ben Wainwright, a community member.

A special thanks to our prize donors, Travel Masters, and the ETMC Olympic Center.


Thank you again to everyone who supported this year’s golf ball drop.
