Thirty teams with 118 participants had a beautiful day for golf at the 22nd Annual Glenn Roberts Elks/Iowa City Hospice Golf Classic that was held on August 7th at the Elks Lodge #590 golf course. Golfers enjoyed 18 scenic holes, a game hole, and participated in several competitions for prizes, all while raising over $18,000 for patient care!
The support generated from this event is more critical than ever for Iowa City Hospice. We continue to stay true to our mission of providing end of life care for all, without regard for ability to pay, since 1983.
Last year in 2016, 1,093 days of charity care were provided. People without insurance, those too young for Medicare, or those needing services not covered by their benefits all received the care they needed thanks to Iowa City Hospice donors.
Deep appreciation is extended to the golf event sponsors, participants, and all of our community supporters who continue to make the compassionate care of Iowa City Hospice available to all.
The 2017 individual prize winners were:
- Longest Drive, Women – Elaine Brown
- Longest Drive, Men – Jobe Price
- Closest to the Hole – Mike Tschantz
- Longest Putt – Paul Sueppel
- 50/50 Winner – Pat McArtor
