The 25th Annual Oak Tree Classic held on Saturday, Sept. 10 was another successful event thanks to our sponsors, donors, golfers and volunteers!  Taking first place this year with a score of 53.5 was Dr. Todd Trudel, John Wermers and Dr. Jacob Bollman.  Roger Sandberg, Mike Sandberg and Mike Swenson landed second place with a score of 55.3 and third place went to Chuck Natalie, Chuck Weiler and Dr. Bob Ross with their score of 56.7.

Best All Woman Team was Mary Weber, Ranet Schmeichel and Liz Sorenson.

Evie Johnson won the top raffle prize of $2,000 and Wade VanDover and Erik Fladhammer each won $250. In a separate raffle, Phyllis Barr won a set of womens clubs with a standing bag, donated by Dr. Robert Ross.

Foundation events would not be so successful without sponsorships.  We truly appreciate our local business community as well as vendors of OAHS for working with us to fulfill our mission to raise funds to maintain and expand top quality local healthcare.
