The Villa St. Vincent Foundation hosted its annual Villa Glow Ball Golf Scramble at Minakwa Golf Course Saturday.

The four-person teams played nine holes in the daylight, took a break to eat some supper in the clubhouse, and then played nine holes with glow balls in the dark, finishing up around midnight.

The team sponsored by Altru Health System took first place, followed by the NAPA-sponsored team in second, and the Centrol-sponsored team in third.

During the awards ceremony in the clubhouse after the golf, all three teams who placed donated their winnings back to the Villa Foundation.

Foundation Director Lori Wagner said the proceeds will go toward a residents’ room updating project. She said the rooms haven’t been updated since 1975. Wagner said each room will cost around $1,200 and will be updated with a three-drawer beside table in English oak, a four-drawer dresser, arm-chair, lamp, a new bed spread and sheets.

Last year’s event raised $9,500; Wagner is tallying this year’s total.
