The Pardee Hospital Foundation was presented a check for $11,250 on April 19, by the golf committees of Hendersonville Elks Lodge 1616 and American Legion Post 77, in honor of Steve Summey following the inaugural Steve Summey Memorial Golf Tournament. The proceeds from the tournament went to the foundation to support Pardee's cancer services.
"This golf event was a wonderful thing for Steve's friends to do to honor him, and the $11,250 raised will be used to help purchase vital equipment at the Pardee Comprehensive Cancer Center," said Kim Hinkelman, Executive Director, Pardee Hospital Foundation.
Summey was co-owner of Summey Plumbing & Heating and a long-time member of the Elks Lodge, American Legion Post 77 and of Crooked Creek Golf Club where the Steve Summey Memorial Golf Tournament was held April 6 - 7. The community came together to hold a memorial golf tournament for Summey following his brave battle with cancer.
