June 29, 1993|By Staff Report

More than $55,000 was raised at Howard County General Hospital's third annual Benefit Golf Classic at Turf Valley Country Club.

The June 18 event attracted about 280 golfers and 400 dinner guests, including Lt. Gov. Melvin Steinberg, County Executive Charles I. Ecker, and County Councilmen Charles C. Feaga, R-5th, and C. Vernon Gray, D-3rd.

For the first time, a golfer made a hole-in-one. Dick Linder of Ellicott City won a Ford Probe from Normandy Ford in Ellicott City, said hospital spokesman John F. Walker.

Proceeds will enhance the hospital's oncology efforts. During the past two years, about $88,000 has been raised. The money has been used to renovate four chemotherapy rooms, establish a hospice suite, an educational fund for oncology nurses and purchase equipment and patient amenities such as blood pressure devices, TVs and VCRs.

Sponsoring the event was the Howard Hospital Foundation, a nonprofit organization that plans and conducts fund-raising activities for the hospital.
