The Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation has announced June 9 as its 13th annual charitable golf tournament.
The tournament is a two-person scramble at Oakwood Golf Club in Houston. Cost is $120 per team and includes a cart, green fees, mulligans and lunch. Tee times are at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The tournament is limited to 40 teams.
Prizes will be awarded in four flights with three places in each flight. The number of entrants in the tournament will determine prizes and flights.
There will be many items awarded, including a hole-in-one and prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin. Entrants will also be eligible for door prizes.
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to ensure the quality of healthcare services for children, women and men at TCMH.
“The TCMH Healthcare Foundation golf tournament assists us in developing the funds needed for our scholarship program, and it helps provide resources for capital projects,” said Jay Gentry, TCMH Healthcare Foundation director.
The foundation awards four $1,000 scholarships during the school year — two in the spring and two in the fall — every year since 2006. The scholarships are awarded to students in the TCMH service area that are pursuing additional education in a healthcare field.
The foundation has awarded more than $83,000 in scholarship funds since the scholarship program began.
