Save the Date: our new Gurney Cup is June 20, 2019 at the Wilds!

About the Event


Each year, the Health Care Foundation hosts a Charity Golf Tournament in support of adult health care here at home. 

This event features a pig roast, oyster station and tasting stations! We look forward to treating you to a wonderful golf outing where you will have the opportunity to sharpen your golf skills, bid on fantastic auction items and compete for fabulous prizes

The Cause


In 2018, the proceeds from the tournament supported the divisions of orthopedics and ears, nose and throat (ENT) surgery. Funds raised will help purchase:

  • A C-Arm for the orthopedics team, which is a mobile fluoroscopic imaging system that allows for lower dose x-rays to be used in areas outside of the Diagnostic Imaging Department; and
  • Laryngoscopes for the ENT team that would allow transoral laser microsurgery for patients with oropharynx cancer.
