Dr Harrison Helps Organize The Flying Samaritans Memorial Golf Tournament (10/17/11)

October 17th, 2011 — 9:57pm

A golf tournament fundraiser was held in Arroyo Grande Monday in honor of four local medical aid workers who lost their lives in a tragic plane crash one year ago.

Last October, pilot Roger Lyon, Dr. James Thornton, Dr. Graciela Sarmiento and Cal Poly Graduate, Andrew Thiel were headed to Mexico to help out at free medical clinics.

They were all part of the humanitarian group Flying Samaritans, and tragically, their plane crashed near Ensenada, killing everyone onboard.

“We wanted to raise awareness for their cause that they were supporting, and also memorialize their efforts. And we thought a wonderful way to do that would be to have this memorial golf tournament,” said Alex Harrison, the golf tournament director.

Proceeds from Monday’s golf tournament at Cypress Ridge will all go to the Flying Samaritans organization.
