Enloe supporter hit the links for fundraiser

More than a hundred people teed off Fridayfor the 28th Annual Enloe Foundation Golf Tournament at Butte Creek Country Club.

Who won? Who cares? The hospital is the winner.

Last year the tournament raised more than $135,000 dollars.

This year they're expecting about $110,000 dollars, and it will all go toward buying a special piece of equipment.

"The proceeds from the golf tournament this year are going to go to our 'Take Flight' campaign, towards our million-dollar plus fundraising effort for our brand new helicopter and we're very close," says Enloe Medical Center President and CEO Mike Wiltermood. "The golf tournament and a few more donations and we'll be hitting our target."

There were also silent and live auctions for prizes such as a five day African safari and various golf trips.

Wiltermood says the community is crucial to making the day a success.
