A Great Success for the 25th Annual Riverview Health Foundation Heartfelt Thanks Golf Tournament

July 14, 2017

Riverview Health Foundation recently hosted the 25th Annual Heartfelt Thanks Golf Tournament—sponsored by BMO Harris Bank—at Pebble Brook Golf Club. Each year, the tournament helps raise money for the improvement of patient services and facilities at Riverview Health.

Some of the causes recently supported by the tournament include:

  • Funding for Large Bore MRI to better identify health issues, including heart disease, stroke and cancer
  • Purchasing equipment for Riverview Health Heart & Vascular including a digital imaging cardiac catheterization lab and a 128-slice CT scanner
  • Supporting women’s heart disease program
  • Procuring telemetry equipment for several Riverview Health service lines
  • Procuring cardiac defibrillators for the Emergency Center and Intensive Care Unit at Riverview Health

With more than $100,000 raised, the tournament had a record-breaking year for fundraising. Sodexo was the top team with Suburban Health and CMTA Consulting Engineers placing second and third. Gaylor Electric, Inc. graciously provided lunch and dinner. During the past 25 years, Riverview Health Foundation has netted more than $2.3 million in support of Riverview Health. Riverview Health Foundation is very thankful to the sponsors, golfers and volunteers who donated their time, talent and resources for this great cause.
