June 16, 2011
June 15 Event Benefitted Saint Clare’s Hospital/Sussex, Honored Bill Snouffer with Annual Jack Rizzo Leadership Award
Saint Clare’s Foundation held its 34th annual Johnny Rizzo Golf Outing at Skyview Golf Club in Sparta, NJ, on June 15, raising $34,000 net to benefit Saint Clare’s Hospital/Sussex, and honoring Bill Snouffer for his support of the community and Saint Clare’s Health System.
The exciting day of golf, sponsored by Nielson Automotive Group and Chrysler Financial, included a registration brunch, tournament schamble start, cocktail reception, and dinner, and awards ceremony. The event also included men’s and women’s low gross and low net, longest drive, closest to the pin and a putting contests, and hole-in-one prizes including a 2011 Hyundai Sonata, sponsored by Franklin Sussex Hyundai, and a 2011 Jeep Wrangler, sponsored by Franklin Sussex Auto Mall. A 50/50 raffle gave the winner, Steve Nardone from Franklin Sussex Auto Mall, $1,500 to take home, while nearly a hundred other winners went home with raffle and door prizes.
A highlight of the event, Saint Clare’s Foundation proudly presented Bill Snouffer with this year’s Jack Rizzo Leadership Award – an award honoring those in the community that have given their all to making the lives of their family, friends, and neighbors better – in recognition of his dedication and generosity to the Johnny Rizzo Golf Outing, as well as his outstanding support of Saint Clare’s Health System.

All proceeds from the event support continued upgrades, enhancements and renovations to Saint Clare’s Hospital/Sussex. The Sussex campus offers a modern Emergency Department, staffed by board-certified physicians and specially trained nurses, as well as same day surgery, cardiac rehabilitation, critical and intensive care, behavioral health services and cancer screenings. The hospital has also added many beneficial services to the residents of Sussex County over the last years, including digital mammography, the gold-standard in breast imaging; a bone density scanner to help diagnose osteoporosis; and a 16-slice CT scanner, allowing doctors to more easily diagnose illness and injury. Additionally, a satellite of Saint Clare’s Dover-based Women’s Health Center is expected this summer.
