The Mahaska Hospice Auxiliary and Mahaska Communication Group once again teamed up with Musco Lighting to host “Golf Under the Lights” on May 23 at Oskaloosa Golf.
The annual event raised $21,850 for the Mahaska Hospice Auxiliary.
According to MHP Hospice Auxiliary Co-Chair Mary Anderson, 108 golfers on 18 teams enjoyed a fantastic night of golfing under Musco’s bright lights.
“It was such a beautiful night for golfing,” Anderson said. “We had a terrific group of golfers and many volunteers. We are so grateful to our co-sponsor, MCG, and to Musco Lighting for making it happen.”
Co-Chair Carol Knoot said that several Hospice Auxiliary members answered the call for help by either donating gift baskets or dollars to be used for baskets that were used in the raffle.
“This was a huge hit with the golfers and a great way for our Hospice Auxiliary members to support the event,” Knoot said.
Through team entry fees, corporate hole sponsorships, donations, a putting contest, raffle ticket sales and the Musco donation from their employee night of golfing, the committee was able to present a huge check to the Mahaska Hospice Auxiliary.
“This is the largest fund-raiser we have for our hometown hospice, and we are so grateful to MCG and Musco Lighting for all their support,” Anderson said. “We truly would not be able to host this tournament without their leadership and expertise.”
Golf Under the Lights Committee Co-Chair Kiley Broadway of MCG said this is the sixth year that the golf tournament was held under the Musco lights.
“This was our sixth year under the lights, and we could not be more pleased with how things went,” Broadway said. “We have a fantastic committee organizing the tournament every year, and we are very grateful to our many local businesses and community members who are generous with their support of hospice. We had a wonderful evening and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
