Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation Golf Scramble Set for June 8
Lexington, Ky. (May 6, 2015)—Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host its annual golf scramble on Monday, June 8, 2015 at the University Club of Kentucky. Both corporate sponsorships and individual registrations are now available for the annual event. Online registration is available at saintjosephfoundation.org.
This premier golf tournament, presented by Bluegrass Oxygen, has seen tremendous growth over the years and last year raised more than $100,000 to support mission and outreach programs at Saint Joseph Hospital, Saint Joseph East and Saint Joseph Jessamine RJ Corman Ambulatory Care Center. In 25 years, the event has raised more than $2.1 million to fund projects including the expansion of KentuckyOne Health Breast Care at Saint Joseph East, nursing scholarships, the Appalachian Outreach Program and Yes, Mamm! Mammography financial assistance and other hospital outreach needs.
“We are grateful to the community for its tremendous support of this event over the past 25 years. Every dollar raised here, stays here,” said Mike Marnhout, long time Chair of the Golf Committee and Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation Board Member. “The proceeds from this event will make a significant impact on the patients and families that rely on us. We understand the importance of hosting over 200 golfers who all share in the belief of providing wellness, healing and hope to those served by Saint Joseph Hospital.”
Registration and lunch begins at 11 a.m. Golf will begin at noon. Following play there will be a ball drop, dinner and awards. For sponsorship information, please contact April Nease at 859.313.2014 or [email protected].
