FORT WAYNE — The first annual Tippmann-McArdle Women’s Care Center Classic held Monday, May 23, at Sycamore Hills Country Club, has raised more than $100,000 for the Women’s Care Center.

The Texas Scramble tournament featured eight gold sponsors, four silver sponsors and 28 bronze sponsors in addition to 64 hole sponsors. Thirty-two foursomes played in the tournament that was won by the Glenbrook Dodge/Mercedes Benz Fort Wayne team (gross) and Tire Rack team (net). Closest-to-the-pin winners were David Dimberio and Pat Miller.

Proceeds from the tournament support the Women’s Care Center, a pregnancy resource organization whose mission is to help pregnant women choose life, and to support and educate new mothers. The organization offers one-on-one birth preparation, a nine-week “Baby Basics” program, goal counseling, parenting classics, and a crib club to earn vouchers redeemable for cribs, car seats, baby clothing and diapers.

“Right now we are serving about 65 women per day, every day. The support we are receiving through this tournament is greatly needed and appreciated,” remarked Anne Koehl, the center’s director.
