The Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH) Foundation’s golf committee is pleased to announce their ninth annual Driving for Health Golf Scramble scheduled to take place on Wednesday, September 6th at the Lapeer Country Club.
This year’s event is shaping up to be an exciting one! In addition to hosting the event at a new course, new sponsorship opportunities have been added to fit nearly any advertising budget, and new contests and games will be offered to players on the course throughout the day.
The community support that we receive for this event each year is phenomenal and it has allowed us to do great things at Marlette Regional Hospital. In recent years, complete and partial renovations of the emergency department and independent senior retirement complex have taken place thanks to the support of our sponsors and golf participants. This year’s event proceeds will benefit a renovation of the acute care/swing bed unit at Marlette Regional Hospital. This is where patients stay following illness, surgery, or injury until their condition has stabilized and they can return home. The renovation will mirror colors and themes found elsewhere throughout the hospital facility.
Getting together nearly 200 golfers, volunteers, and sponsors to support a worthy cause makes for a great day of fun and fellowship. If area businesses are interested in golfing or sponsoring this year’s event, please contact the Marlette Regional Hospital Foundation office at 989-635-4011 or 989-635-4012. In-kind contributions are also welcomed for our prize board, and all contributions are tax deductible. We are nearing our max of 36 teams, so we encourage businesses to contact us as soon as possible with their team information.
We thank our Thumb Area community for your past support and extend thanks for the support you may give this year and into the future!
