ROCK SPRINGS — The Memorial Hospital Foundation is excited to announce that the MHSC Golf Classic-Coming Back Swinging will be held August 14 at Rolling Green Country Club.
The Golf Classic is a 4-person scramble tournament that raises money for the Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County. Last year, the Foundation Board decided not to host its annual golf tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This pandemic has been a challenge for everyone. Memorial Hospital is our community leader in promoting good health and safety for our residents. As this crisis subsides we are excited to be a leader in bringing back a sense of normalcy to our community,” said Foundation President, Matt Jackman.
Bringing the MHSC Golf Classic back is important to the Foundation Board as all proceeds are dedicated to the hospital and are used to purchase equipment and support the needs of the community.
“Our last tournament raised over $23,000 which was directly invested back into the hospital to purchase equipment,” said Tiffany Marshall, Executive Director of the Foundation.
In 2019, the Foundation invested $145,400 into the hospital purchasing equipment for the Urology, Same Day Surgery, Laboratory, Medical Floors, and Nutrition Services Departments. Marshall explained that those purchases were made with the Greatest Needs Fund which is where
the proceeds from our golf tournaments have been designated to by our Foundation Board.
“Now that most COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, we are looking forward to welcoming our great supporters back to the golf tournament for a great day of fun, friends, and fundraising,” said MHSC Trustee President Taylor Jones.
MHSC Foundation is partnering with Western Wyoming Beverages, Square State Brewery, and Teton Distributors to provide an optional beer tasting activity throughout the course for the golfers. Following tournament play, lunch will be provided by Searle Brothers Construction.
The MHSC Golf Classic has numerous sponsorship opportunities that include participation and also includes individual scramble team participation. To become a sponsor, or register your team, visit this website or contact Tiffany Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
