The annual Richmond Hospital Foundation Golf tournament, hosted at Richmond Golf and Country Club, raised an impressive $288,000 last Monday.
“The huge success of (the tournament) speaks to the deep commitment that leaders demonstrated as they embraced and championed the needs of Richmond Hospital,” said Iain Hunt, Richmond Hospital Foundation Golf committee chair and CEO of Cleantech Service Group.
“We are tremendously grateful to our very generous donors, sponsors, golf committee members, board members and the numerous volunteers who helped to make the day inspiring and memorable.”
The Fund-A-Need portion of this year’s event focused on the Richmond Hospital Intensive Care Unit and the urgent need for new kidney machines, which perform the work of a patient’s kidneys when the patient’s own kidneys begin to fail.
Gifts from generous donors at the tournament will fully fund the purchase of two new state-of-the-art kidney machines.
For the 9th consecutive year, with ASPAC as its presenting sponsor, the event united nearly 150 golfers and more than 250 guests, who demonstrated their community spirit, generosity and long-term commitment to improving health care in our community.
For over 30 years, the foundation has raised more than $80 million to help purchase vital medical equipment, improve patient care services and upgrade facilities at Richmond Hospital.
