Hospital foundation raises funds via golf tournament


Oconee Regional Healthcare Foundation (ORHF) will host its sixth annual golf tournament Friday to help support various projects and fundraisers held throughout the year.

“The money raised will be used to further projects the foundation funds that are outside the hospitals’ normal revenue streams,” said Dana Lowe, marketing specialist for the Oconee Regional Medical Center (ORMC). “The foundation helped with the renovation of the emergency room several years ago and also helped purchase a linear accelerator for the cancer treatment center.”

With 23 teams of four registered, the tournament will kick off with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Friday at the Milledgeville Country Club.

Participants’ registration fee includes green fees, cart, unlimited range balls, box lunch, souvenir bag and two drink tickets. An after-round dinner and award ceremony will follow at 5:30 p.m. in the clubhouse where non-playing attendees can also enjoy for $15.

For an additional cost, mulligans and contests are offered.

“We do have several contests, including the longest drive and closest to the pin,” Lowe said. “Prizes will be available for low net foursome.”

ORHF serves the community by raising funds that enhance the mission of ORMC. The foundation also works in partnership with SHINE (See How Investments Nurture Everyone), the internal fundraising organization which is supported by employee donations. SHINE projects have included funding of a new canopy over the Patient Discharge Area, renovation of the mammography waiting area, and the resurfacing of the hospital’s walking track.

“We’re encouraging people to come out and support these people who are supporting our hospital by playing in the tournament,” Lowe said. “The response this year has been overwhelming.”
