UNC School of Dentistry Golf Tournament Raises $5,000 for Scholarships

The 18th UNC School of Dentistry Golf Tournament was held at Carolina’s premier Finley Golf Course last month, hosting 75 golfers competing for top prize. The tournament, chaired by Dr. Lynn H. Smith of Sanford, N.C., boasted 15 paid sponsors and netted approximately $5,000 in scholarship funding for dental students. Though no one was able to sink the hole-in-one to take home a $10,000 cash prize, golfers enjoyed awards and prizes in our raffle draw and our “Closest to the Pin” contest. Donated prizes from 18 businesses ranged from football tickets to restaurant gift certificates.

Team winners for the tournament were as follows:

Joey Hatch
Jeff Jeffreys
David Panella
Rob Pearce
George Hining
Mike Hining
Johnny Morris
Glen Wright
Eric Bufano
Kevin Dillard
Bob Marshall
Chris Saillant

The Dental Foundation of North Carolina and the UNC Dental Alumni Association would like to thank all of our sponsors and participants who make the tournament such a success and so much fun. We look forward to seeing everyone on the links again next year! Be sure to save the date for next year’s tournament on April 12, 2013!

A special thank you to our sponsors: We appreciate your support!
