On Friday, July 2, over 100 golfers and hospital volunteers gathered at The Powder Horn Golf Club to raise awareness and funds for patient care programs at Sheridan Memorial Hospital.
The Foundation’s 12th Annual Golf Tournament focused on raising funds that will go towards the expansion of the hospital’s Transitional Care Unit (TCU). Due to contributions such as those raised during the tournament, SMH can continue driving forward in providing their award winning patient-centered care, for everyone.
According to The Foundation, this year’s event was a huge success, raising over $17,000 for our Transitional Care Expansion campaign. Over its 12 years, the golf tournament has raised over $265,000 in support of patient care for the community. Projects funded include the COVID-19 Care Fund, Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care, Cath Lab, the Patient GAP Fund – which helps ensure successful recovery for patients after a hospital stay, and various other department projects. Most recently, these funds were able to support the expansion campaign for the hospital’s TCU. This improved TCU is on track to house 20 private patient rooms, 12 more than the previous space, as well as a private dining area, separate family meeting & consultation room, and multiple rehab spaces.
Winners of this year’s Tournament included:
1st Place Team – Troy Baker, Paul Mavrakis, Paul Felker, Anthony Spiegelberg
Others who received recognition for their excellent play included Samantha Spielman, Tayla Legerski, J.T. Grainger, and Will O’Dell.
According to The Foundation, First Federal Bank and Trust, D.A. Davidson; Kennon; and O’Dell Construction were this year’s Hole-in-One, Gold Sponsors.
“It was a great day of golf and philanthropy with funds raised to support expansion of Transitional Care for our community,” Chief Development Officer Cody Sinclair said. “Sheridan Memorial Hospital and the care it provides to everyone is remarkable, and The Foundation is appreciative of everyone who was involved. Thank you to all of our wonderful tournament sponsors, participants, and volunteers for helping make this a great event!”
