The annual Al Hein Memorial Golf Tournament had another successful summer event by raising over $37,000 for the hospital while striking competition amongst business leaders.

The Hudson Hospital Foundation's golf committee incorporated a new twist to the 28th year old tournament. Business leaders now have the opportunity to win one of five "Industry Challenge" trophies to proudly display for one year at their office.

"We wanted something new and fun," stated Rich O'Connor, M&I Bank, and tournament co-chair. "The competition challenges all of us in finance, legal, medical, sales & retail, and construction/real estate industries - it's amazing what a friendly competition and a traveling trophy can do."

The winners of the 2009 Al Hein Industry Competition are: Legal-McCormick Law Offices; Medical-Regions Hospital; Construction-New Mech Companies; Finance-M&I Bank; Sales & Retail-Variety Office.

Hudson Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit organization that serves the community by raising funds to support Hudson Hospital & Clinics, as well as other local health-related projects.
