“Pam does a wonderful job with this tournament,” he said. “The tournament was a success for a great cause in fighting diabetes. We’re blessed to have great support from the community and the golfers.

“They know any help is going to make a difference in the battle against this disease.” Honeycutt said.

Giardiello noted Springs Memorial Hospital served as the corporate sponsor for the tournament.

She also added special thanks for City of Lancaster firemen who provided the cooking for the meal following the tournament.
