AGH Foundation’s Annual Golf Tourney Raises $124K

BERLIN — The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation held its successful Robert E. Warfield Memorial Tournament in September at the Ocean City Golf Club.

The forecast predicted rain leading up to the event, but the weather held out long enough for the golfers to complete their 18 holes, resulting in another successful year. The event was attended by 210 golfers on 53 teams. Participants, volunteers and Atlantic General staff shared a day full of golf, great food and fun.
