GRA­SONVILLE — The United Way of Queen Anne’s County raised al­most $9,500 to ben­fit lo­cal non­profit agen­cies at this year’s golf tour­na­ment at the Prospect Bay Coun­try Club on April 25. The an­nual tour­na­ment is the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s largest fundraiser. This marked its 23rd year.

“We had ter­rific spon­sors,” said Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor San­dra Early. Fed­eral Re­sources was the ti­tle spon­sor. Other spon­sors in­cluded: Deloitte, PNC Bank, Queen­stown Bank, CNB, Ameriprise Fi­nan­cial, SCD In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and Kelly Dis­trib­u­tors.

Then there were nu­mer­ous hole spon­sors and busi­nesses that do­nated prizes, she added.

Snack sta­tions on the course were some­thing new this year, and ev­ery­one seemed to like them, Early said. Board mem­bers made sure cold drinks were re­plen­ished through­out the day.

Six­teen teams com­peted in a four-player scram­ble. Tak­ing first place was a team from De­liotte with a score of 58. Team mem­bers in­cluded Craig Wichter, Steve Kauf­man, Pa­trick Schoen­wet­ter and Vince Sala­m­one.

The next two teams scored 61 each and place­ment was de­cided by tiebreaker. The Queen­stown Bank team of Doug Pier­son, Gary Blann, Kevin Wright and Jim Shaw took sec­ond and the Clark team of Jim Clark, Chad Wil­lard, Steve Whit­myer and Mike Mann took third.

Vicki Paulas, from the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay En­vi­ron­men­tal Cen­ter team, won long­est drive for the women. Harry Early III, from the Fish­er­man’s Inn team, won long­est drive for the men.

The United Way of Queen Anne’s County has raised and dis­trib­uted more than $600,000 since the chap­ter was es­tab­lished in 1990. Vol­un­teers and do­na­tions are al­ways wel­come. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 410-6436288.
