Golfers swing for healthcare in Region 8

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A little rain didn't dampen the spirits of golfers out at the Paragould Country Club on Thursday.

It wasn't because they're die-hard golfers, but because every swing, putt, and birdie was helping others, local business leaders.

Region 8's very own Ryan Vaughan and Blake Guinn took part in the 20th annual Arkansas Methodist Medical Center Foundation's golf tournament.

"Every year we do this in September to raise money for the foundation," Terry Austin, foundation director, said. "Basically to put equipment throughout the hospital as needed. Helping with expansion helping with growth and services offered by the hospital."

Proceeds from the event will go toward providing quality healthcare for Paragould and surrounding towns.
