Northport — Regular weekly member play — including a hole-in-one — and a highly-successful annual fundraising event highlighted recent play at the Northport Golf Club.

On Saturday, July 13, in the fourth annual "Get Your Pink On" tournament, 60 golfers combined for two-person scramble teams over the nine holes to raise money for the Waldo County General Hospital Mammography Assistance Fund.

John Olsen and Thomas Heath finished first at 33.

Paul Doody and Preston Ward finished second at 34.

The pin winners were: Ed LaJoie, 12-5 on the third hole; and Jenna Caler, 9-8 on the ninth.

Paula Herron, one of the organizers of the tourney, said the event raised about $16,000, with additional monies expected.

She said money raised will help those who cannot afford the first step in early breast cancer detection.

"This was a joint effort by the ladies of Northport Golf Club," Herron said. "[and] the support of the businesses in the community and members all coming together to raise this money through tee sponsors, raffles, golf and wonderful silent auction baskets."

Herron thanked Lisa Desmarteau, Lou and Sharon DeHayes, Pat Wood, Martha Dixon and Petra Harlova for their work on the tourney.

"I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful event," Herron said, adding the tourney has grown steadily over the years.

Additionally, hospital staff volunteered at the event, including Ann Hooper. The women’s imaging center is named after Hooper.
