CLAYTON, NC: Over 70 golfers teed off on Thursday, October 5, at the 15th Annual Todd McCulloch Memorial Golf Invitational to benefit the ECU Heart Institute. Held at The Neuse Golf Club in Clayton, NC, the generous support of the golfers helped raise $10,780 for education, research, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Jacob McCulloch opened the tournament with a reminder of his late father, Todd McCulloch, and two of his father’s characteristics that he holds dear, fellowship and leadership. Todd was a friend to all and his leadership had a huge influence on PCI. “We sincerely thank you for your continued support in helping us honor and remember our dear friend and colleague Todd McCulloch,” said Andy Ferrell, PCI President.
Tournament participants enjoyed a variety of competitions in addition to the 18 holes of Captain’s Choice on The Neuse’s newly renovated greens. Activities included Accurate Drive, Wicked Six Challenge, where participants used their #6 iron for the entire hole, and a Hole in One challenge where $10,000 was up for grabs. Participants challenged PCI’s President, Andy Ferrell, in “Beat the President,” raising $600 for the ECU Heart Institute.
This year’s tournament closed with an Awards Dinner. All enjoyed a BBQ dinner as awards were given out. This year’s winning team joined us from Novo Nordisk, second place from Biogen and the Integrity Award given to one of the ECU Heart Institute teams.
The East Carolina Heart Institute is the first in North Carolina devoted exclusively to education, research treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. PCI partners with them to help improve health status and bring awareness of cardiovascular health in memory of our dear friend Todd McCulloch.
