Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast has been a vibrant part of serving residents and visitors on the Emerald Coast over the past 14 years. Our hospital has grown steadily to serve the needs of the community, and the players and supporters of the annual Charity Golf Classic have been an integral part of this success. Since 2002, the tournament has raised more than $3 million for various expansion efforts, including the Olson Womenâ€™s Diagnostic Center, The Family Birth Place, The Judy & Steve Turner Heart and Vascular Center and Cancer Center. We invite you to join us at the 15th Annual Sacred Heart Charity Golf Classic as we continue to build on the legacy of this signature fundraising event.
The 2016 tournament will tee off on Monday, April 4, 2016 at Burnt Pine Golf Club in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, Miramar Beach, Fl. Players and event supporters are invited to attend the annual Charity Classic Party on Sunday, April 3rd at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa. This yearâ€™s party will not disappoint and will include music, hors dâ€™oeuvresand a live auction.
Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast recently launched a major expansion to increase capacity for inpatient services, emergency services, maternity services, and pediatric services. The expansion is a great testament to the communityâ€™s continued support to expand access to high quality, compassionate healthcare close to home.
In support of this endeavor, the Charity Golf Classic committee will direct the proceeds from this signature fundraising event over the next four years to support the Emergency Department expansion. Last year, more than 28,000 patients were served in the hospitalâ€™s Emergency Department. Over 70% of the admissions to the hospital come in through the emergency department. This expansion will include the addition of thirteen new patient rooms benefiting all who live, work and play in our community.
