19th annual Charity Golf Tournament a huge success
A special thank you to our Corporate Sponsors: Newfoundland Styro, Core Engineering, Mobia Technology, The Central Voice, Labatt and Dr. Wian Lotter, Baie Verte.
And many thanks to our team sponsors, hole sponsors, prize donors and many volunteers for helping us create another successful charity golf tournament!
The 19th Annual Golfing for Green Charity Golf Tournament was held at the Grand Falls Golf Club on Thursday, August 9th and successfully raised $22, 235 to help fund healthcare equipment for the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre.
This year’s funds will support the purchase of Nerve Conduction Testing Equipment for Neurology. This is an assessment tool for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and many other diseases such as ALS. The machine is also used to diagnose muscle and nerve damage in Diabetic patients. This will enable patients to have diagnoses and testing done in Grand Falls –Windsor verses having to go to St. John’s. This equipment will replace aging equipment that currently only can perform minimal diagnoses because of its technology. It machine will cost approximately $40,000.
Did you know that over the last 19 years our GOLF sponsors and participants alone have helped our charity raise over half a million dollars! In some cases which has helped us bring new healthcare equipment, services and programs to the region.
Some of those included Portable Ultrasounds for ER and OR, a Urology Laser, a new High Dependency Unit, refurbishment of the ER Family Room, OR equipment for Women’s Health, Breast Biopsy equipment, and equipment for Endoscopy. These are just a few. Almost every department at the CNRHC has benefitted from this generosity.
Don't forget next year's tournament - happening on Thursday, August 15th, 2019.
