The 31st annual Chick Schaffner Charity Golf Tournament held recently raised $16,000 for Stein Hospice and the American Heart Association. Tournament co-chairmen Dan Franks and Chuck Schaffner, left, awarded $8,000 each to Sarah Hegarty of the American Heart Association and Amanda Michaels of Stein Hospice, as John Schaffner and Shelby Brossia of Stein Hospice looked on.

One of the oldest charity golf tournaments in the area, the 31st annual Chick Schaffner Charity Golf Tournament was held at the Catawba Island Club on Monday, Sept. 21 and raised a combined $16,000 for Stein Hospice and the American Heart Association.

Named for the late Chick Schaffner of Brush Wellman in Elmore, now known as Materion, the golf tournament is hosted by his son, John Schaffner, publisher of The Beacon newspaper. Stein Hospice and the American Heart Association had a significant role in the lives of the Schaffner family, said John Schaffner, at the passing of Chuck Schaffner on Oct. 31, 1971.

Schaffner thanked the incredible team that organized the charity golf tournament, including Dan Franks and Kerry Velliquette from Materion; Tiffany Zinn from Materion Credit Union; Sara Hegerty from the American Heart Association; his brother, Chuck Schaffner; and his wife, Mary Alice Schaffner.
