The Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation recently held its 27th annual Benefit Golf Classic at Old South Country Club in Lothian. A field of 148 players competed for top honors and raised nearly $71,000. Since the event began in 1990, it has raised $1.2 million to fund patient care equipment and vital hospital services.
This year’s proceeds will help fund a newly purchased mobile health unit that will travel throughout Calvert County, bringing community members access to dental and medical health care, as well as prevention and wellness programs.
Tournament Chair Pat Petricko was thrilled. She said, “Our success is entirely due to the incredibly generous sponsors, enthusiastic golfers and wonderful volunteers who come out year after year to support this great cause.”
CMH President and CEO Dean Teague expressed his gratitude to the golfers, sponsors, and employees who make it all possible. He said, “I hope you know that your contributions really make a difference in the care our hospital is able to provide to the community.” During his remarks, Teague singled out Ober l Kaler and American Radiology Services and American Radiology Associates who led the way with Master’s Club sponsorships.
He added, “We’d also like to recognize our generous Ryder Club sponsors-- All American Ambulance & Transport, Cornerstone Advisors, Columbia Bank, Leach Wallace, Networking Concepts, MedStar Health and Radio Shack of Prince Frederick.
