Evangelical Community Hospital Invites Golfers and Sponsors to Take Part in 32nd Annual Golf Classic Event

Evangelical Community Hospital will host its 32nd Golf Classic Event on Friday, August 10, 2018, at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club. The scramble format event has morning and afternoon shotgun starts 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 2018 Ford EcoSport AWD from Selinsgrove Ford with a hole-in-one on the course. Quandel Construction is the main Golf Classic Event Sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are available for those looking to support Evangelical Community Hospital’s Pre-Hospital Services program.

Awards will be provided to the top three teams in the morning and afternoon and will be announced during meal time after all golfers have returned their score cards.

Held annually, the Golf Classic raises funds for life-sustaining treatments performed by trained paramedics and emergency medical technicians at the scene of an emergency. These emergency responders also provide vital patient information to Emergency Department personnel before the patient arrives at the ER doors.

“Over the years, this annual event has raised nearly $959,000 to support Evangelical’s Pre-Hospital Services department,” said Donna Schuck, Associate Vice President/Chief Development Officer at Evangelical. She continued, “We are extremely grateful to the sponsors, participants, and donors whose contributions make the tournament a great success; this event is about more than just a day on the golf course, it’s about providing necessary funds to support lifesaving services.” 

Evangelical’s Pre-Hospital Services staff answered over 12,000 calls last fiscal year with 50 percent of those being medical emergencies, 40 percent being trauma, and 10 percent classified as other. All of Evangelical Community Hospital’s paramedics are nationally registered and cover territories in Lewisburg, Watsontown, Mifflinburg, White Deer Township, Milton, Middleburg, New Columbia, and the surrounding areas.

Nick Klose, Director of Pre-Hospital Services said, “The Pre-Hospital staff of Evangelical are exceptional. They answer every call knowing they are responding to people during emergency situations where anxiety and concerns are high. They bring compassion and medical experience to every call. The dollars raised at the golf event, support their efforts by giving them the equipment and medical supply tools they need to save lives.”
