Evangelical Invites Golfers and Sponsors to Take Part in 27th Golf Classic Event

Evangelical Community Hospital will host its 27th Golf Classic Event on Friday, August 16, 2013 at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club. Morning and afternoon shotgun starts are available at 8 am and 1:30 pm. Entry fee for each golfer is $125 and includes green fees, golf cart, buffet lunch and refreshments on the course. A light breakfast and dinner will also be provided.
 
This year’s event features on-the-course contests and a chance to win a 2014 Ford Mustang from Selinsgrove Ford with a hole-in-one on the course. For the fourth consecutive year, the Savitz Organization is the main Golf Classic Event Sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are available for those looking to support Evangelical Community Hospital.
 
Held annually, the event raises funds for Pre-Hospital Services, life-sustaining treatments performed by trained paramedics at the scene of an emergency. Paramedics also provide vital patient information to Emergency Department personnel before the patient arrives at the ER doors.
 
“The support of this event has been tremendous over the past 26 years. During that time, the Golf Classic has raised more than $770,000 to support Evangelical’s Pre-Hospital Services department. We can’t thank those who’ve supported the event enough for their contributions in making the tournament a success,” said Heather Snyder, Evangelical Development Coordinator.
