Gerber Memorial golf fundraiser June 10 to support health care access, transportation
Fremont, Mich., May 6, 2022 – Spectrum Health Foundation Gerber Memorial will host a golf scramble fundraiser on Friday, June 10, at Waters Edge Golf Course in Fremont to support health care access and transportation needs among community members. The scramble starts at 9 a.m., with lunch at noon. Waters Edge is located at 1100 Ramshorn, Fremont, 49412.
Proceeds from the 22nd Annual Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial Golf Scramble will enable Gerber Memorial to offer transportation assistance to patients who do not have the financial means of transport to, from and between home and medical facilities. Expanding transportation support can help give low-income and elderly patients access to medically necessary, life-prolonging treatments that they might otherwise forgo.
The cost is $150 per golfer or $600 per foursome. Register online at give.spectrumhealth.org/gerber-memorial/golf. To participate, register by May 31, 2022.
