Evangelical Invites Golfers and Sponsors to Take Part in 35th Annual Golf Classic

June 09, 2021


Evangelical Community Hospital will host its 35th Annual Golf Classic on Friday, August 6, 2021, at the Bucknell Golf Club in Lewisburg. 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, refreshments on the course, and meals. With respect to the COVID-19 pandemic and holding a safe event, some aspects of this event are subject to change.

The Golf Classic raises funds for life-sustaining treatments performed by the trained paramedics and emergency medical technicians of Evangelical Regional Mobile Medical Services. These emergency responders also provide vital patient information to Emergency Department (ED) personnel before the patient arrives at the ED doors.

This year’s event features on-the-course contests and a chance to win 2021 Ford Escape from Selinsgrove Ford with a hole-in-one on the course. Quandel Construction is the main Golf Classic Sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are available for those looking to support ERMMS.

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

“Over the years, this annual event has raised nearly $1,080,000,” said Donna Schuck, Associate Vice President/Chief Development Officer at Evangelical. “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 programming, equipment, and lifesaving services of our emergency response crews.”

ERMMS staff answer over 12,000 calls per year with 50 percent of those being medical emergencies, 40 percent being trauma, and 10 percent classified as other. All ERMMS paramedics are nationally registered and cover territories in Lewisburg, Watsontown, Mifflinburg, White Deer Township, Milton, Middleburg, New Columbia, Port Trevorton, and the surrounding areas.

Nick Klose, Clinical Director of ERMMS said, “The people who make up our emergency response teams continue to provide for the community in a compassionate way during some of the most difficult situations. Funds raised through the Golf Classic enable the Hospital to provide the equipment and medical supplies our EMTs and Paramedics need to save lives.”
