Amery Hospital & Clinic hosts 31st annual golf classic fundraiser
May 31, 2019
Amery Hospital & Clinic Foundation will host its 31st annual Golf Classic and Social Fundraiser Friday, July 12 at Amery Golf Club. The foundation aims to raise $35,000 at the event for the hospital’s Behavioral Health Center, which provides patients experiencing mental health conditions with a comfortable, healing and caring environment.
For more than three decades, the golf classic has raised money for Amery area community health needs. Funds raised have purchased a van that picks up patients for clinic appointments if they have no other transportation; supported the PowerUp for Kids program that works to eliminate childhood obesity; and helped support the Make It OK program that strives to reduce the stigma around mental illness.
“Through the years, we have had incredible support from the community for this important fundraiser,” said Joanne Jackson, executive director of Amery Hospital & Clinic Foundation. “No matter what the ask is for this fundraiser, the community is generous.”
This year’s beneficiary, the Behavioral Health Center, provides four primary services: an inpatient short-stay program for adults; structured outpatient program; outpatient counseling for ages 5 and older; and an outpatient program for people with alcohol and other substance abuse conditions.
Cost for the golf event is $100 and includes lunch, golf, cart, dinner, games and awards. Learn more and register by June 28 by calling 715-268-0303.
