Golf & Gala raises money for MedWest remodeling
The Haywood Regional Medical Center Foundation (HRMCF) held its 22nd annual Charitable Classic Golf & Gala for MedWest-Haywood Tuesday and Wednesday at Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa.
The two-day fundraiser featured five golf tournaments and an evening gala on Wednesday night. The HRMC Foundation promotes and administers charitable gifts for the advancement of MedWest-Haywood’s abilities to respond fully to the changing and growing health care needs of local citizens.
Proceeds from this year's HRMC Foundation Charitable Classic Golf & Gala will help fund a remodel of the fourth floor of the hospital which encompasses Women’s Care and the Progressive Care Unit (PCU) and Unbudgeted Funding Opportunities (UFO), a grant program to help departments at MedWest Haywood purchase equipment or materials to supplement the current budget.
The HRMC foundation held a sponsor kick-off June 12 to thank past and current sponsors at Maggie Valley Club. This year’s lead sponsor, Warren and Marilyn Bateman, served as hosts for the kick-off.
Event co-chairs are Ron and Susan Breese. Susan Breese’s father and mother, Dick and Emily Bradley, were past co-chairs of the tournament.
“My dad and mom instilled in me that as members of this community we must give back by volunteering and supporting financially worthwhile causes in Haywood County," she said. "MedWest Haywood is a vital part of this community and the HRMC Foundation has contributed significant funds to assist the hospital in providing excellent care to the citizens of Haywood County."
