Fremont – Spectrum Health Foundation Gerber Memorial will host a golf scramble fundraiser on Friday, June 21, at Waters Edge Golf Course in Fremont to support the hospital’s local community wellness programs. These programs range from free cooking classes and support groups to diabetes education and a countywide program that promotes nutrition and physical activity to more than 3,000 elementary students.
The 19th Annual Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial Golf Scramble kicks off at 8 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m., and ends with a lunch at 2 p.m.
Fee is $150 per person, and includes continental breakfast, 18 holes of golf with cart, lunch and prizes. The cost for a foursome is $600. Waters Edge is located at 1100 Ramshorn, Fremont, 49412.
“Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial is committed to improving the health of our community, so we’re really excited to offer programs that directly impact the families we serve from before a child is born to students and all the way to adults and seniors,” said Loretta Towne, Spectrum Health Foundation at Gerber Memorial specialist. “Gerber Memorial’s annual golf outing is one way members of our community can come together and support programs that benefit our friends, family and neighbors. We’re grateful for our sponsors and to our supporters for being our partners in building a healthier community right here in Newaygo County.”
Registration is now open online: give.spectrumhealth.org/gerber-memorial/golf. Interested parties are encouraged to register early and sponsorships are available, starting with tee sponsors at $200 and up.
The 2018 golf scramble raised more than $26,000 for the Gerber Memorial Cancer Center. These funds have been used to make upgrades to the oncology department’s patient rooms. In addition, a new bone marrow biopsy procedure table, white noise machines for patient areas, smoking cessation education materials and shower cards for self-breast exams have been purchased.
The outdoor lunch following play at the golf scramble will be catered by Lakes 23 Restaurant and Pub at Waters Edge.
