Registration has begun for the 2022 Charity Golf Classic, which will be held Friday, Sept. 23, at Burnt Pine Golf Club in Sandestin. The presenting sponsors this year are Grand Boulevard, Howard Group and Silver Sands Premium Outlets. The chair of this year’s event is Bill Tate.
Proceeds from the tournament will be used to purchase advanced diagnostic imaging technology for the care of both pediatric and adult patients at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast. The Siemens Somatom Drive CT scanner is considered one of the industry’s fastest and most versatile scanning modes, allowing an entire adult chest, abdomen and pelvis study to be conducted in approximately one second so patients don’t need to hold their breath. The new CT scanner will have 4D high-resolution for better detection of lesions and abnormalities to ensure more accurate diagnostics as well as minimum radiation exposure.
“With the generous support of our community and event supporters, we are able to provide new equipment and technology to our community," said Adrienne Maygarden, President of the Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation. The new CT-imaging system will touch thousands of lives in so many ways in the coming years, and we are so grateful to all who have joined us in support."
The cost for a four-person golf team is $2,000 or $500 per player. Multiple sponsorship opportunities also include team entries and sponsor recognition. Tax-deductible sponsorship opportunities range from $1,000 to $15,000.
