Burn Center golf tournament raises record amount of funds
GREELEY, Colo. (Oct. 12, 2011) – Despite British Open-like conditions with rain, wind, and low temperatures setting the tone for the day, more than 300 golfers, sponsors and volunteers participated in the sold-out 21st annual Western States Burn Center Golf Classic, hosted by the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation.
The event took place Sept. 15 at Boomerang Golf Links in Greeley. With a new four-man Peoria Scramble format, golfers competed for numerous prizes and awards. There was plenty of food to go around with two cookers on the course providing snacks courtesy of Halliburton and Magna Energy Services along with the meals provided by The Outback restaurant.
Golfers were treated to a special visit from the North Colorado Med Evac helicopter and staff.
A record of $76,000 net proceeds will be used to purchase medical equipment for the Burn Center and provide continuing education to the highly specialized team of nurses, doctors and other health care providers caring for burn patients. The Foundation would like to thank all of the sponsors and volunteers.
