Lee golf outing raises $16,000Published 11:04pm Monday, July 23, 2012
The Lee Memorial Foundation’s eighth annual Golf Outing, a scramble event held July 13 at Spruce Ridge Golf Club in Dowagiac raised more than $16,000. The money will help Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital fund the purchase of equipment, such as a ventilator, Hoyer Lift (patient lift) and specialized machinery for surgery.
“Purchasing this equipment enables us to enhance patient care throughout our service area,” said Karen Judd, chairwoman of Lee Memorial Foundation Board of Trustees. “We are once again very grateful to all of this year’s golf participants, along with the numerous businesses and individuals who sponsored the event, contributed prizes and made donations. Everyone’s involvement helps us connect and partner with regional patients in health for their life’s journey.”
A total of 36 golf teams and 47 sponsors participated in this year’s outing. Twenty-four area businesses, organizations and individuals provided donations and prizes.
“Due to everyone’s dedication and generosity, we enjoyed a beautiful day of golfing while supporting one of our community’s most valuable assets – Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital,” Judd said. “We plan on next year’s golf outing to be even bigger, so we encourage everyone to remember the event and register early.”
