Chester River Health Foundation’s Sporting Clays Tournament Benefits Hospital Nurses & Patients

For immediate release...

The eighth annual John E. George Memorial Sporting Clays Tournament will be held on Sunday, October 17, 2010, at Hopkins Game Farm in Worton, Maryland. This year’s tournament is again being generously sponsored by David A. Bramble, Inc.

“Proceeds from this year’s event will help purchase nine portable vital signs monitors for the inpatient nursing staff of Chester River Hospital Center,” said Maryann Ruehrmund, executive director of the Chester River Health Foundation. “Our goal is to raise $25,000 to completely pay for this new technology, which will greatly assist our nurses in performing their duties.”

The tournament will feature a European start. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and all shooters must be on the course by noon. Prizes will be awarded for high overall, Lewis classes as well as top ladies, seniors (60+ years of age), and juniors (under 17 years of age). Cash option side games will be available as well.

A delicious picnic-themed lunch will be catered by Jeff Carroll of Amuse Bouche, a local catering business. Additionally, all participants will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Remington 1187 (Camo) Sportsman Super Mag Waterfowl Shotgun (valued at $1000).

Registration forms for participation and sponsorship are available online at www.chesterriverhealth.org. Registrations received by Friday, October 9, will receive a $25 discount.
