WMH Golf Tournament – Golf without Dinner
(Honesdale, July 24, 2020)…. The 14th annual Harry Kiesendahl Memorial Golf Tournament will take place as planned on Monday, August 10th, but with changes. Due to Governor Wolf’s rollback of occupancy rates for indoor dining from 50% to 25%, Woodloch Resorts has regretfully told Wayne Memorial that it will not be able to provide the usual dinner at the event. Hospital and Wayne Memorial Health Foundation administrators still expect a great tournament.
“It’s always good to get out and exercise,” said WMH CEO David Hoff, “Woodloch offers not only a beautiful course but golf allows for social distancing in ways many other sports do not.”
Hoff noted that the event is also for a good cause. The monies raised will help the nonprofit hospital purchase state-of-the-art technology and fund physician recruitment incentives. Last year, the tournament raised $43,000 for the hospital’s Second Century Fund, named in honor of Wayne Memorial’s centennial this year.
The hospital and Woodloch are working to enhance aspects of the day for golfers, including a more special box lunch than in years past. Wayne Memorial is also working with individual event sponsors to assure they are recognized for their commitment to the hospital’s future.
Woodloch has also put certain measures in place for safety—including masking requirements in public areas.
“As a healthcare organization, we are particularly sensitive to helping prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said Hoff, “we appreciate Woodloch and our golfer’s understanding of the situation.”
