The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation will hold its 16th annual Fall Golf and Tennis Classic on Monday, September 26th, at the Edgewood Country Club in River Vale, N.J. The presenting sponsor of the event is once again Union State Bank, which continues to demonstrate its commitment to the community through efforts such as this. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Hospital's Regional Kidney Center.
The golf classic will be a fun-filled day beginning with a breakfast buffet at 9:30 a.m. Attendees can choose to participate in either an elite 18-hole ÂshambleÂ or a 9-hole scramble, which is preceded by an instructional Golf Clinic. For those who prefer a hard court to the links, a tennis tournament will also be offered.
Local corporations and organizations are encouraged to show their support by taking advantage of one or more of the various sponsorship opportunities that are available, ranging from $25,000 ÂLinks SponsorÂ on down to $250 ÂTee Sponsor.Â Individual golfers are invited to attend at a cost of $475 per person for the 18-hole shamble or $400 per person for the clinic and 9-hole scramble. The donation to attend the evening festivities alone is $150. Donations of goods and/or services for the always popular silent auction, such as gift certificates, show or game tickets, or electronics, would be much appreciated.
All funds raised through the Fall Classic will support the Regional Kidney Center of Good Samaritan Hospital. A 10-station unit, the Center provides ongoing hemodialysis and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis to patients who require kidney replacement therapies. Total computerization of the state-of-the-art facility provides complete on-line monitoring, calculations and tailoring of care for each patient - assuring adequacy of treatment. The funds raised through this outing will allow a continuation of the hospital's long tradition of compassionate, quality care for the people of the Greater Rockland County area at Good Samaritan Hospital.
