Aroostook County golf tourney to raise funds for local health care

HOULTON, Maine – Golfers from throughout Aroostook County and beyond are gearing up to aid health care in the 33rd annual County Open charity golf tournament.

The event is a major fundraiser for the Houlton Regional Health Services Foundation, which supports technology and patient care at Houlton Regional Hospital and community efforts like firefighter safety and health education.

In the last 33 years, the County Open Charity Golf Tournament has contributed more than $668,000 toward critical health care needs in southern Aroostook County. Those funds were instrumental in helping purchase 3D digital imaging for the radiology department, providing faster and more reliable results for patients.

The two-day event will be held over two different golf courses on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 13 and 14.

The Open has become one of the premier golfing events held in Aroostook County for the past three decades, and often draws both participants and financial support from former County residents sprinkled all over the country.
