    Almost $2,300 was raised by 47 golfers during the United Way of Scott County’s sixth annual golf scramble held on Sunday, September 27.
    The funds they raised benefit the Community Care Fund of the United Way, which supports numerous health and human service programs and organizations in Scott County.
    The first place team, which scored 15 under par, was Scott Memorial Hospital’s team of James Vaughn, Tisha Vaughn, Jason Vaughn and Kenny Brown. They took top honors with a combined score of 55. In second place were Tim Edwards, Jim Felix, Jeff West and Eric Meyers, members of the Wal-Mart Distribution Center team. They scored a 58.
    Third place went to last year’s winners, John Newmister, Dick Stark, Darrel Day and Ransum Caldwell, who also scored a 58.
    Organizers with the United Way expressed their appreciation to the businesses and individuals for their donations, which ensured another successful golf scramble. Supporters included Martin Insurance Agency, which donated a $10,000 hole-in-one prize. Hole sponsors were Austin Tri-Hawk Automotive Inc., Blue and Company, Buchanan Funeral Home, Cerro Wire and Cable Co., Downing, Roberts and Downing, Houston and Thompson P.C., Jay C.
