Fore! Nanticoke teeing up its annual golfing fundraiser Sept. 21-22


BRIDGEVILLE – Nanticoke Health Services will host its 31st annual golf tournament Thursday, Sept. 21 and Friday, Sept. 22 at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville.

Thursday’s tournament will be Ladies Day. Friday’s tournament will be the traditional tournament open to men and women.

The tournaments will consist of 18 holes with four-person teams utilizing a handicapped scramble format.

Participants will have a day of golf at Heritage Shores, an Arthur Hills classic links-style course. Both days will consist of practice, 18 holes of golf, food and gross and net team prizes.

Again this year, WBOC will host the Helicopter Ball Drop fundraiser. For this event, pre-numbered golf balls are sold to the public, loaded into Chopper 16 and then dropped onto the driving range of the Heritage Shores golf course at the start of the Open Day tournament on Friday, Sept. 22.

The ball that lands in the hole first or is closest to the hole wins half of money collected. You do not need to be present to win. Golf balls can purchase online at or by contacting Nanticoke Health Services Foundation at 536-5390 or

Additional avenues of supporting the tournaments include eagle, birdie, and par levels of sponsorship, as well as tee signs and Pink Links sponsorships.

Sponsorship opportunities are available to both individuals and businesses.

Proceeds from the tournaments will benefit Nanticoke Cancer Care Services. Nanticoke Cancer Care Services, accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, combines a loving environment with quality care delivered by a team of compassionate experts.

Nanticoke’s Cancer Care Center treats patients living in Sussex County and surrounding areas, allowing them to receive lifesaving cancer treatment in Seaford. As a result, the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center is once again expanding to meet the cancer needs of the community.

Your support will impact many lives within our community and together we can make a difference, one stroke at a time. More information and registration forms for the tournaments are available online at or by contacting the Nanticoke Health Services Foundation at 536-5390 or
