Hillcrest Healthcare Foundation is a nonprofit that provides financial support to advance the Hillcrest Healthcare belief that Everyone Matters. It’s another way we tap into the volunteer spirit to increase access to healthcare services, education and technology.
On Oct. 5, the foundation held its First Annual Golf Tournament at Avalon Golf & Country Club. After registration and breakfast, players had a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. and finished the tournament with a lunchtime awards ceremony.
The top three teams were recognized with additional prizes given to the player who hit closest to the pin and the longest drive. Duncan Family Automotive Group also offered the chance to win a free car to anyone hitting a hole-in-one; alas, there were none shot during the tournament.
The inaugural event was a great success with more than 50 golfers and a dozen volunteers participating in the tournament. It raised more than $14,000 that will be used to expand healthcare service offerings to indigent seniors in the Knoxville community.
On a mission
The tournament is one way to raise funds to support the foundation’s mission:
Hillcrest Healthcare Foundation promotes healthcare delivery in our community by funding indigent care, advanced pharmaceuticals, new technology and equipment, educational programs and more to patients and residents of Hillcrest Healthcare. Its philanthropic support allows Hillcrest Healthcare to offer and broaden a comprehensive array of health-related services to elders and disabled individuals and provide educational opportunities to Hillcrest employees through scholarship funds.
Through the Providing Access to Health Services (PATHS) Program, 100 percent of tax-deductible donations to the nonprofit go directly to support specific needs of those served in Hillcrest Healthcare communities. The foundation welcomes volunteers and accepts individual donations, corporate gifts and sponsorships. You can also donate to Hillcrest Healthcare Foundation on our website.
The foundation is looking ahead to more engaging events in 2021, so be sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up to date.
