Evangelical Invites Golfers and Sponsors to Take Part in 31st Annual Golf Classic Event

June 30, 2017


Evangelical Community Hospital will host its 31st Golf Classic Event on Friday, August 11, 2017 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 2017 4WD Ford Escape 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 to the top three teams (gross and net) in the morning and afternoon will be announced during meal time after all golfers have returned their score cards.

Held annually, the Golf Classic event 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 $920,000 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 answer nearly 11,000 calls per 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, “Having expertly trained staff who compassionately answer every medical call is part of what makes Evangelical’s Pre-Hospital Services department an asset for all of the community. It is because of the dollars raised at this event that we are able to back that medical expertise with the equipment and medical supply tools they need to save lives.”
