37th Annual Evangelical Golf Classic Raises Funds for Lifesaving Services

Evangelical Community Hospital hosted its 37th Golf Classic on Friday, August 4, 2023, at the Bucknell Golf Club, Lewisburg. The event was a great success with 204 golfers raising over $54,000 for Evangelical Regional Mobile Medical Services (ERMMS). 

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 Hospital.

“With this year’s support, the Golf Classic Event has raised $1,244,647 over its history. We are extremely grateful to the sponsors, participants, and donors whose contributions make the tournament a great success,” said Donna Schuck, Associate Vice President of Philanthropy and Donor Relations at Evangelical. 

“This continued support of ERMMS, affords our EMTs and Paramedics vital training to keep their skills sharp, new vehicles for response, and essential, modern equipment that travels with them to aid in their ability to answer patient needs while in transit to the Hospital.” 

ERMMS staff answer over 13,000 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 Hummels Wharf, Watsontown, Mifflinburg, Milton, Middleburg, New Columbia, Port Trevorton, and the surrounding areas. 

This year’s golf event raised funds through registration, featured on-the-course specialty contests, and sponsorships from individuals and businesses.

Cornerstone Advisors Asset Management, LLC served again as the main sponsor of this year’s Golf Classic.
