ISLAND CITY — The 26th annual Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation fundraising golf tournament brought 72 golfers to La Grande Country Club Saturday, Sept. 12.

The top gross scoring teams were the first-place team of Clint Williams, Michelle Bell, Russ Scott and Merle Comfort, and the second-place team of Kyle Dodds, Dana Londin, Max McCullough and Sean Christianson.
The first-place net scoring team included Eric Yundt, Christine Yundt, Bob Kautz and Dorothy Kautz, and the second-place scoring team featured Tony Haddock, Jamie Haddock, Beau Willadsen and Michelle Willadsen.
Other contest winners included Bob Brooks, who won a raffle for a Skamania Lodge getaway, and Stewart Smart, who won the putting contest for a 65-inch 4K television.
The Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation has raised more than $4.6 million for equipment since 1969.
