One very special golfer will mark his 37th Auxiliary golf outing -- Richard Zettler, MD. Dr. Zettler is 91years old and has played in every Auxiliary golf outing since its inception. Although a bad back will keep him from playing this year, his family is playing in a foursome and Dr. Zettler will follow their progress in his own golf cart.   

All proceeds from the popular outing benefit patient care at Fairfield Hospital. Last year’s outing generated more than $70,000 to benefit the electrophysiology lab at The Heart Institute, Mercy Health – Fairfield Hospital. Proceeds from this year’s outing will benefit the hospital’s breast health center.
