Searcy, a Livermore resident, made tournament history when he hit a hole-in-one on the seventh hole, winning himself a brand new Lexus ES250.
"There was so much excitement around the course after the hole-in-one. You could hear the buzz all afternoon and many of the golfers who know Andrew have all said it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy," said Shelley Despotakis, manager of the ValleyCare Charitable Foundation.
Searcy was so excited about his golf shot that he had forgotten about the prize offered.
"I was so excited about my first ever hole-in-one, I completely forgot that the prize was a new Lexus ES250," said Searcy.
After a day of golfing on the championship course, participants attended a dinner and silent auction. Proceeds from the day's events benefit the ValleyCare System Emergency Room Expansion Campaign.
