Since the tournament began 23 years ago, more than $4 million has been
raised to support new technology and various patient care enhancements
Mission Viejo, CA – The Mission Hospital Golf Classic continued its rich philanthropic
tradition by netting more than $366,000. This successful event, held at
Pelican Hill Club in Newport Beach, would not have been possible without
the leadership of Golf Chair Jim Bastian and the generosity of Tournament
Sponsor Audi Mission Viejo and Infiniti of Mission Viejo and Presenting
Sponsor Jessup Management Services. The golf tournament proceeds will
enable Mission Hospital to remain at the forefront of advanced health
care technology, facilities, cutting-edge services, and community benefit
programs that nurture and support the underserved. One of the annual highlights
of the event is the raffle drawing of a new Audi or Infiniti vehicle,
complements of Tournament Sponsor Audi Mission Viejo and Infiniti of Mission
Viejo. This year’s lucky winner is Andrew Saad of Trabuco Canyon.
“Every year we try to enhance the tournament by adding new offerings
to amp up the fun,” shared Jim Bastian. This year golfers were offered
the opportunity to play a scramble or shamble format. First place on the
men’s scramble course was claimed by the McDermott & Bull Executive
Search Firm foursome, including Laguna Niguel resident Rod McDermott,
Garrett Lipus, Steve Montgomery and Taylor Wood. Robert Summer’s
group secured first place on the shamble course; a resident of Dove Canyon,
Robert’s team included Greg Lopez, Jeff Payne and Dennis Reiland.
The Coto de Caza team of Dana Bredenkamp, Gale Dunlop, Debbie Long and
Donna Sabatasso landed the women’s first place victory.
Several new tournament contests were added including a Yellow Ball Challenge
and Closest to the Keg. Bill Leonard of Coto de Caza and his foursome
from Prestige Office Coffee Service were successful in playing their yellow
ball throughout the tournament without losing it. Mission Hospital’s
Thad Herman won the honor of Closest to the Keg.
Throughout the course golfers enjoyed incredible food provided by Hanna’s
Restaurant & Bar, Canyon Fireside Grille, Chick-fil-A and Board &
Brew. Cool refreshments included NOLET’S Silver Dutch Mules, Ketel
One Citroen Lemonade, Fix Auto Beer Margaritas and Nekter Juice, as well
as beer from Ballast Point Brewing Company, Lagunitas Brewing Co., Hangar
24 Craft Brewery and Beach City Brewery.
Forecaddies were once again provided for each foursome – graciously
donated by Ira Hermann of Capstone Partners Financial and Sunwest Bank.”
