Pitching, Putting and Providing Care: Chilton Hospital Announces its 27th Annual Golf Fundraiser on June 13|
(Pompton Plains, NJ) - Attention golf lovers: Here's a great way to enjoy a relaxing day on the course while helping your community hospital.
Chilton Hospital announces its "27th Annual Chilton Golf Classic" on June 13, at the beautiful Preakness Hills Country Club in Wayne, NJ. Proceeds from the Golf Classic will benefit Chilton Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of the nonprofit acute care hospital located in Pompton Plains, NJ.
"Thanks to the generosity of our community members, local businesses and philanthropists, $400,000 was raised last year through special events, such as the Golf Classic," said Chilton Foundation Executive Vice President Dawn Jones. "This money went toward telemetry beds, which monitor a patient's heart rate."
The Chilton Hospital Foundation is aiming to equal last year's figure of $150,000 raised from the Golf Classic. Funds generated from this year's event will continue to support the $24 million hospital wide renovation project.
