Harnett Health Foundation Hosts Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Harnett County, N.C. (April 25, 2014) – The Harnett Health Foundation will host its annual Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday, May 15. This Captain’s Choice Scramble will be held at Anderson Creek Golf Club in Spring Lake, N.C. with check-in at 9 a.m. and a 10 a.m. shotgun start.

Held during National Hospital Week, the tournament theme is “Compassion, Innovation, Dedication: The Commitment Continues” and celebrates the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation, and unwavering, unmatched dedication.

“The Foundation’s mission is to support Harnett Health by positively impacting the health and wellness of all of our communities through our philanthropic efforts and our supportive programs,” said Harnett Health Foundation Board Chair, Cornelia T. Stewart. “Our goal is to further expand access to quality and compassionate healthcare throughout Harnett County and surrounding areas.”

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the work of the Harnett Health Foundation in our community. Also, the Foundation is honoring the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) by donating funds from raised from a longest drive challenge for this organization. The WWP nurtures the minds and bodies of service members who incurred a physical or mental injury or illness so they can successfully adjust to their lives back home. Some key focus areas of the WWP are combat stress and recovery, family support, peer mentoring, economic empowerment to return warriors to work, and encouragement to participate in adaptive sports events.
