2010 Highlights

It was another perfect day for the 2010 Herbert J. Block Memorial Tournament at Scioto Country Club on June 28, 2010. Now in its 27th year, tournament friends continue refusing to drop the ball in the fight against cancer.

Since its inception, the Herbert J. Block Memorial Tournament has raised nearly $4 million for Ohio State’s cancer program. In 2010 tournament proceeds once again benefited ProjectONE, the largest construction and renovation project in the history of the University. This expansion includes a new cancer hospital and cancer ambulatory center.

Following a great day out on the links, golfers and tournament friends came together for the evening reception and awards ceremony. Medical Center leaders – Steven Gabbe, MD, Mike Caligiuri, MD and Dave Schuller, MD - spoke on the future of medicine through ProjectONE and the groundbreaking cancer research taking place right here at Ohio State. Honorary Chair Archie Griffin shared stories from his days with Coach Woody Hayes and the importance of paying it forward to help others.

The day would not have been complete without the signature ball drop. Ball #520 was the winner for longtime tournament volunteer and supporter, Anne Creek, who selected the winning number for the second consecutive year.

The evening concluded with the announcement of the winners of the skill contests as well as the top three golf teams.  Representing the Ohio State University Medical Center, Bill Mountcastle, Alan Hinson, Rod Gordon, Monica Gordon and Thom Adler captured the 2010 tournament championship and were awarded the coveted champion jackets.

The OSUCCC-James and the Block family would like to thank all of the 2010 sponsors, tournament players and volunteers who contributed their support so generously. We look forward to another successful tournament in 2011.  Remember, don’t drop the ball in the fight against cancer!
