Surpassing 30 years of fundraising, the Hudson Hospital Foundation is proud to continue the legacy of Al & Laurie Hein which redefines what it means to truly give back to the community. This year the tournament raised nearly $40,000 in support of the Foundation.
The tournament hosted over 130 golfers and supporters at White Eagle Golf Club. Joining together in support of their community, local business leaders and community members arrived eager for a little friendly competition.
“Adding some flare to the already fierce competition, each golf cart offered a GPS map detailing the golf course, team tracking capabilities and most importantly, a leader board,” Rich O’Connor, Foundation Board Chair and golfer at the tournament commented. This allowed teams to receive real time information listing top teams as the scores were entered. “Teams could knock one another off the leader board in a moment’s notice and gain some bragging rights until the next hole – simply fantastic!”
Nick Hackworthy, tournament chair stated, “The Al Hein is very important to our community. It takes several months to plan and we owe many thanks to the volunteer committee who worked tirelessly to solicit gifts from businesses in support of the event. We are fortunate to have so many people believe in our mission. That’s why this tournament is successful every year.”
The winner of the 31st Al Hein Memorial Golf Tournament was Piccadilly Valet from Minneapolis; and 2nd Place honors went to Mudge, Porter, Lundeen, & Seguin of Hudson. The winner of the 2012 Luther Auto Driving Range Challenge was Paul Meyer. The 2012 Al Hein Industry Competition winners included:

The tournament, which is a Hudson tradition, allows the community to come together to support their local hospital and raise funds to support care services such as cardiac rehabilitation, CPR and AED training, cancer care, healing arts, Life Assist home monitors, and much more. It would not have been possible without the generosity of top sponsors: Andersen Corporation, Hudson Physicians, Regions/ HealthPartners, Erickson Oil, Corval Group, and Luther Auto Group. Thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting this year’s event.
