Pardee Hospital Foundation to host 21st annual Tournament of Champions - May 2

Proceeds from golf tournament will benefit 
Pardee Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Center

Pardee Hospital Foundation will host the 21st Annual Tournament of Champions golf tournament on Monday, May 2 at Kenmure Country Club. The entry fee is $275 per player; sponsorships are also available. Participants can enjoy 18 holes of golf in either the morning or afternoon, followed by an awards ceremony and dinner in the evening. 

The goal for this year's tournament is to raise $75,000 to purchase a comprehensive swallowing and voice tower for Pardee Hospital's new Comprehensive Cancer Center, set to open in fall 2016. This equipment will enhance quality of life for cancer patients, streamline the coordination of cancer, and decrease dental-related restrictions and costs. 

Since 1996, the Tournament of Champions has raised more than $2 million to benefit Pardee Hospital services, equipment and patient care. 

"If you're a golfer, we invite you to join our 21st Annual Tournament of Champions," said Kimerly Hinkelman, executive director of Pardee Hospital Foundation. "Each year at this memorable event, participants enjoy friendly competition on one of the area's finest golf courses while giving back to their community hospital. We hope to see you there."
