North Cypress Medical Center hosted its 9th Annual Spring Classic Golf Tournament on Friday, May 13 at Blackhorse Golf Club in Cypress. With the help of community partners, the event organizers raised $45,000 for the Lone Survivor Foundation, a non-profit that restores, empowers, and renews hope for wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support.
A special military three-plane Lonestar Freedom Flight, out of Conroe, Texas, performed a symbolic fly-over honoring fallen heroes to kick off the tourney. Fifty-four teams participated in the tournament.
North Cypress CEO and Chairman of the Board Dr. Robert A. Behar said, “As the largest and oldest community hospital in Northwest Harris County, we have an obligation and desire to give back to the community we serve. We were pleased to again be joined by so many area businesses and organizations in this charitable endeavor.”
North Cypress Medical Center’s golf tournament has contributed more than $180,000 to the Lone Survivor Foundation in the past four years. “We are thrilled to be able to donate to such an outstanding organization. Lone Survivor Foundation founder Marcus Luttrell, and all of those serving our country are true American heroes,” continued Behar.
Lone Survivor Foundation’s Executive Director Terry Jung stated, “Our foundation appreciates North Cypress and all of the community sponsors. This support from the community will help us host 31 therapeutic retreats, up from 16 last year, for returning service men and women and their families.”
