ALTON — With the help of divine weather, dedicated volunteers and charitable participants, OSF Saint Anthony’s 15th annual Charity Golf Tournament at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course raised more than $80,000 for the hospital’s cancer program.
The tournament, hosted by OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation, included longtime event supporters Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst, Team Fredbird and the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis and the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George.
“We are thrilled at the success of our golf tournament and what it will mean for our cancer program,” said Lee McRaven, Development Specialist for OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation. “The money raised will help OSF Saint Anthony’s continue to provide the best cancer care in the River Bend. And it was great to see Red and Team Fredbird back again this year. Their continued support has helped make this the premier golf tournament in the area.
“Being able to pay tribute to longtime OSF Saint Anthony’s volunteer and golf committee member, Gene Crivello, made the day even more special,” McRaven said. “It was an honor to have his family there.”
During the past 15 years, the golf tournament has raised more than $900,000 for the OSF Saint Anthony’s Cancer Center of Excellence.
The event was co-chaired by Monica Bristow, president of the RiverBend Growth Association; and Liz Nelson, community volunteer.
“We had a great time at Spencer T. Olin and I would like to thank Mary Campbell and the staff for making it a wonderful experience,” McRaven said.
