BERLIN — The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation held its 2021 Robert E. Warfield Memorial Fall Golf Classic last month at the Ocean City Golf Club. Despite scattered rainstorms, this year’s tournament was a great success, attracting 208 golfers on 52 teams. Volunteers, Atlantic General staff and participants shared a fantastic day full of great food, fresh orange crushes, golf and prizes.

On Oct. 13, Atlantic General leadership and staff, Fall Golf Classic committee members and Michael James from the Carousel Group, the 22-consecutive-year Legacy Sponsor, all came together to commemorate the success of the event. With the help of the many sponsors, golfers and volunteers, the event raised $112,500 for the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation. Proceeds from the tournament enable the not-for-profit healthcare organization to advance the health of the residents and visitors of the community through a coordinated care delivery system that provides access to quality care, personalized service and education.

Winning teams in the tournament were first place, Lou Taylor, Buzz Taylor, Dan Parker and Penny Parker; second place, USI Insurance Services, Jim Brannon, Steve Niewinski, Mark Scott and Bryan Shepherd; and third place, i.g. Burton team of Charlie Burton, Bob Earle, Mike Larking and Danny Michaels.
