    Oneonta – The A.O. Fox Hospital Foundation hosted its 19th Annual Golf Classic at the Oneonta Country Club on June 25, bringing 32 donors and 124 golfers to support fundraising efforts for future projects and equipment at A.O. Fox. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, golfers and guests, the foundation raised more than $34,000 towards the cause.

    “We are incredibly grateful to our sponsors who have shown continuous dedication to A.O Fox Hospital and our community over the years,” says Sarah Abbatine, fundraising coordinator for the A.O. Fox Hospital Foundation. “The weather was stunning and this year’s tournament was a great success because of the Oneonta Country Club’s terrific staff, A.O. Fox’s 2018 golf committee, and many volunteers.”

    Harley Schultes, longtime Bassett Healthcare Network employee and golf committee member, was this year’s honorary recipient of the Sid Levine Award. The award, given each year to an outstanding citizen, symbolizes the high standards and leadership modeled by the late Sid Levine, one of the founding members of the A.O. Fox Hospital Foundation.

    Overall winners with a low net score of 56 were the foursome of Doug Tessitore, Ed Zawisza, Paul Adamo, and Mike O’Donnell, who will have their names engraved on the Doc Lusins Cup. Prizes were also awarded for longest drives, straightest drives, and closest to the pin.

    A.O. Fox Hospital Foundation thanks the following corporate sponsors for their continued support: A&D Transport, Eastman Associates, Fust Charles Chambers, and Preferred Mutual Insurance. Additional major sponsors included Compass One, UA Local 112 Plumbers & Pipefitters, NBT Bank, Community Bank, and Medline.
