The rescheduled Morris Hospital Auxiliary annual golf outing and bridge/euchre tournament will be Sept. 23, at the Morris Country Club.
The event was originally scheduled for May but postponed due to the April 18 flood.
Guests are invited to golf, play cards or come for a casual pig roast dinner, with all proceeds benefiting the Morris Hospital LifeLine and Patient Transportation programs.
Activities begin with golfer check-in and lunch from 11 a.m. to noon. At noon, golfers will head out on the links to play 18 holes.
The bridge and euchre tournaments will begin at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. All participants, as well as guests from the community, are invited to a buffet-style pig roast dinner at 5 p.m. The dinner program will include a brief awards reception and raffle drawings.
The cost for 18 holes of golf, lunch and hors d’oeuvres is $150 per person or $540 for a foursome. Registration for bridge and euchre is $30 per person and includes dinner. Individual tickets for the casual pig roast are also available for $25. A cash bar will be provided.
Sponsorships with varying benefits are available at the following levels: $5,000 top flite, $2,500 eagle, $1,000 driver, and $500 for a hole sponsorship. U.S. Bank has already claimed a top flite sponsorship with a lead gift to the event.
The Morris Hospital Auxiliary has supported the Patient Transportation and Lifeline programs for many years with proceeds from the golf outing. Both programs provide vital services to the communities served by Morris Hospital.
Whereas the Patient Transportation Service offers complimentary transportation to and from healthcare appointments, Lifeline is an emergency response system that provides instant access to emergency assistance and peace-of-mind for individuals who live alone. Last year, the Patient Transportation program helped community members get to medical appointments over 17,000 times. Lifeline has more than 520 local subscribers.
