June 4, 2009 – Harris, N.Y. – Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC), Sullivan County’s premier provider of health care services, is asking local duffers to tee it up for a worthwhile cause this August. The 31st Annual Catskill Regional Medical Center Golf Classic in memory of Howard K. Bern will be held at Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello on Tuesday, August 4. Proceeds from this year’s event will help CRMC purchase state-of-the-art equipment for cancer diagnosis and advanced care. The former manager of Grossinger Hotel in Liberty, Bern was a popular and active figure in Sullivan County. He succumbed to cancer in 1979, and the CRMC Golf Classic has been held in his memory ever since. The exciting day of golf and fun will begin with brunch at 10 a.m. before tee-off at 11:30 a.m. on Kutsher’s famed 18-hole championship course. At the conclusion of golfing an Awards Reception will take place featuring an open bar cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres from 5 to 6 p.m., followed by a buffet dinner. The first golfer to record a Hole-in-One on the 16th hole will win a 2009 Ford Edge courtesy of M&M Auto Group in Liberty. Major prizes will also be awarded for the first Hole-in-One on designated par three holes on the course. Other prizes will be presented to men and women in several overall categories including lowest score.
