The Chester River Health Foundation will host its 29th annual golf tournament at Chester River Yacht & Country Club on Friday, June 2. The fundraiser will benefit the creation of a state-of-the-art education center at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown.
Previously a conference room, the new education center will feature videoconferencing technology that allows for group education and also provides space for in-person education for staff and community. Classes will include CPR training, safe sitter classes, and health-related support groups.
The Chester River Hospital Center Auxiliary is once again the event’s presenting sponsor.
“The tournament allows for 32 foursomes, and numerous sponsorship opportunities,” said Debra Lauser, event coordinator. “We have amazing prizes that both the skilled and lucky golfer will have a chance to win, including tickets to the 2024 Super Bowl at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, three opportunities to win $10,000 at the holes-in-one, and a $10,000 putting contest.”
“Every dollar raised will play a significant role in the health and well-being of our community, as funds raised will help re-establish community education programs that went silent during COVID, as well as foster new ones presented through the Shore Community Outreach Team,” said Maryann Ruehrmund, the Foundation’s executive director.
The registration fee is $200, which includes greens and cart fees, buffet lunch, snacks and beverages on the course and a post-tournament awards reception and dinner buffet. To register, contact Deb Lauser at 410-810-5661. For sponsorship opportunities, visitumcrhf.org.
Because of the essential role this annual fundraiser plays in the Foundation’s ability to provide funding for the highest priority hospital equipment, the tournament will be held rain or shine. For more information, please contact Ruehrmund at 410-810-5660 or by email at [email protected].
