The 15th annual Serotonin Surge Charities golf tournament was held at the Turkey Creek Golf Club in Lincoln on Sept. 19. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, guests and volunteers, we were able to raise more than $45,000 for the Maggi Carlile Memorial Scholarship Fund, the UC Davis School of Medicine’s student-run free clinics and Cure Breast Cancer.
The highlight of the day was Dr. Jack Ostrich winning a trip to Hawaii with a hole in one on No. 11, where he used a 4 iron to hit a one-bouncer 163 yards. This year, our donation to the free clinics was made in memory of John Marco Henderson, son of Drs. Mark Henderson and Helen Chew.
