WellSpan Evangelical Community Hospital Invites Golfers and Sponsors to Take Part in 38th Annual Golf Classic 

WellSpan Evangelical Community Hospital will host its 38th Annual Golf Classic on Friday, August 2, 2024, at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club, Selinsgrove. 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. All golfers are welcome to register and enjoy the day while supporting a cause.

The Golf Classic raises funds for Evangelical Regional Mobile Medical Services (ERMMS) an extension of WellSpan Evangelical Community Hospital’s service offerings, that works with community ambulance agencies to supplement their needs in a meaningful way.

Cornerstone Independent Asset Management is the main Golf Classic Sponsor. This year’s event features on-the-course contests and a chance to win 2024 Ford Bronco Sport from Selinsgrove Ford with a hole-in-one on the course.

Business and individual sponsorship opportunities are being welcomed for those looking to support ERMMS through having their name/business associated with the Golf Classic. Committing by July 5, 2024 ensures full benefits of being a sponsor.

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

“Thanks to our generous sponsors, participants, and donors this annual event has raised more than $1,244,721 since its inception,” said Donna Schuck, Associate Vice President/Chief Development Officer at WellSpan Evangelical. “Each year, we are grateful to the sponsors and players for taking part in this event.

Ultimately, a day of golfing fun provides necessary funds to support the programming, equipment, and lifesaving services of our emergency response teams.”

ERMMS provides life-sustaining treatments performed by nationally registered paramedics and EMTs at the scene of an emergency, answering over 12,000 calls per year with 70 percent of those being medical emergencies, 20 percent being trauma, and 10 percent classified as other. These emergency responders provide vital patient information to Emergency Department (ED) personnel before the patient arrives at the ED doors.

Through collaboration with local municipalities and fire departments, ERMMS provides emergency ambulance service in a time of need. In addition to ambulance stations in Mifflinburg, Hummel’s Wharf, Port Trevorton, and at WellSpan Evangelical Community Hospital, ERMMS provides EMT and Paramedic staff for Warrior Run Area Fire Department and Milton Fire Department.

Jonathan Bastian, Chief for ERMMS said, “The first responders who make up our emergency response teams consistently deliver compassionate care during some of the most difficult situations. We continue to grow our team and emergency medical services program in new ways thanks to the support of the community. We encourage anyone who has a passion for emergency medical services to consider joining our teams or taking part in our EMT Training Program offerings.
