VHH 17th Annual Golf Classic May 12
The Verdugo Hills Hospital Foundation is getting ready for its 17th Annual Golf Classic, which is set for May 12 at the Valencia Country Club. Last year, the tournament was sold out and raised a record $191,000 for patient-care services, programs and advanced medical technology for the not-for-profit community hospital. The goal this year is to raise $200,000.
â€œMy family very much appreciates the value of having a high quality community hospital such as Verdugo Hills Hospital,â€ said co-chair Dave Elliott. â€œAnd I am pleased to support one of its biggest fund-raisers to meet the hospital's needs. Dick Cook (co-chair) and I have been active with the Golf Tournament since its inception in 1991. We are happy to co-chair the event this year.â€
â€œI am honored to have been asked to again co-direct this incredible event which is returning to Valencia Country Club,â€ said Steve Wilder, co-tournament director. â€œThe Tournament has been a success year after year in raising funds to support Verdugo Hills Hospital, and Sue and I are sure 2008 will be another great year for the Tournament.â€
â€œHaving been involved with the Verdugo Hills Hospital Golf Tournament for several years, I have seen it continue to evolve as it is certainly an exciting and successful fundraiser for the Hospital. I am sure 2008 will see this trend continue,â€ said Sue Wilder, co-tournament director.
The lead tournament sponsors are Eagle Sponsors The Walt Disney Studios and Horizon Health and Birdie Sponsor Technicolor, Inc.
As a special post-Cinco de Mayo treat, the tournament will feature a Mexican theme, and participants can take advantage of an exclusive FootJoy Pop-up Shop onsite by hand-selecting their tee prizes prior to the tournament using their very own VHH merchandise certificate.
The tournament is always a sell-out event, so reserve a spot soon. For sponsorship or golfing participation information, contact the Foundation office at (818) 952-2226.
