In addition to Liberty Mutual, the golf tournament was also supported by its two presenting sponsors, Staples Advantage and the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Medical Staff. Many local businesses also contributed to the success of the tournament.
Michael V. Sack, Hallmark Health President and Chief Executive Officer, and Cam Neely, former Boston Bruins star and newly named president of the Bruins organization, announced that Hallmark Health has signed a three-year agreement to be the “Official Healthcare Partner of the Boston Bruins.”
Olympic Gold Medal winner Mike Eruzione was this year’s celebrity golfer and featured speaker. Eruzione was the captain of the 1980 United States “Miracle on Ice” hockey team and helped lead the team to victory over the former Soviet Union in Lake Placid, NY. The team went on to beat Finland in the gold medal round. The team’s story was so compelling it was later made into the movie “Miracle” by Disney in 2004.
This year’s tournament proved to be especially lucky for Tom Buchanan, CEO of Derry Medical Center in Londonderry, NH, who won $10,000 for getting a hole-in-one. Later that evening, Buchanon also won a 7-day cruise for two from Boston to Bermuda through the event’s raffle.
