Not even the August heat of Tri-Cities could slow down the philanthropic spirit and golf play at the Foundation’s recent Golf Classic on August 11th at Meadow Springs Country Club! There was a fantastic golf course to be played and tasty food to be had. Players enjoyed icy towels at the peak of the heat and then retreated into the cool Reception, where the raffle and auction prizes did not disappoint. Video of the day’s golf activity played in the background as the speaker dove into the heart of the matter and shared valuable information about the importance of scholarships for healthcare students in our community.
It was a fun day, but more than that, over 30 Sponsors, including HAPO Community Credit Union (premier Sponsor), Bouten Construction Company, Apollo Mechanical, and Garrett Electric came together in support of the Classic. The Foundation is very pleased to announce that thanks to Sponsor and player support, a record-breaking $47,000+ (12% increase from 2013) was raised in support of healthcare scholarships for local students. In addition to this, over $9,500 was received via in-kind donations from local businesses and supporters.
Thank you to all who participated and supported the Golf Classic! With your ongoing support, we can continue to improve the quality of life for our local scholarship recipients and for our overall community!
