Fore! the Health of It! Golf Tournament
We celebrated our 11th Annual Tournament June 15th!
StoneRidge Golf Course
BLANCHARD – June 15th’s Fore! the Health of It! Golf Tournament scrambled 112 players for the Newport Hospital and Health Services Foundation for the 11th annual fundraiser and raised over $25,000, smashing last year’s fundraising record by $2,500. The event was held at StoneRidge Golf Course and included an 18-hole scramble, awards ceremony and dinner. Despite the 2017 rained-out tournament, the 28 foursomes were ready to go and played through only 15 minutes of showers and hail.
Organized by the Newport Hospital and Health Services Foundation, the golf tournament is part of the annual campaign to raise funds to promote and support all Foundation programs, including the Healthy Kids Snack Bags program, Reach Out and Read, and hospital district educational and equipment needs.
“The Fore! the Health of It! Golf Tournament has become a pillar event for hospital vendors, employees and community members to support NHHS Foundation programs,” Marketing and Foundation Director, Jenny Smith, said. “Thanks to the extreme generosity of the many people who attend and sponsor, we are able to make a significant difference in our community and District programs.”
