BLANCHARD – June 16th’s Fore! the Health of It! Golf Tournament at StoneRidge Golf Course scrambled 28 foursomes under dismal weather conditions for the Newport Hospital and Health Services Foundation fundraiser. The 10th anniversary tournament saw golfers through their seventh hole before calling them back to the club house with a course “alarm” signal.

Lightning, thunder, wind and heavy rain sent golfers scrambling for cover. StoneRidge officials and tournament coordinators decided to call the game, but golfers gathered for an early dinner and tournament prizes. Even though the prizes normally afforded to tournament winners were raffled, the 100 plus crowd was in good spirits.

Tournament funds grossed over $22,000 to benefit NHHS Foundation programs including Healthy Kids Snack Bags (a weekly snack delivery program to 250 school-age children from 5 local communities), and Reach Out and Read, a pre-kindergarten literacy program that provides new books to children age 0 to 5 years old.
