Riverview Health Foundation raised more than $115,000 at the 29th annual Heartfelt Thanks Golf Tournament at Pebble Brook Golf Club on June 16, 2021. More than 230 golfers and 30 staff and community volunteers joined in this year’s event to help support Riverview Health Foundation, which in turn provides funding for new health services, programs and equipment at Riverview Health.
“We look forward to hosting this event every year not only because it raises funds for programs and projects at Riverview Health but because we can spend the day outside with members of the community having fun,” said Megan Wiles, executive director of Riverview Health Foundation. “With the beautiful weather, this year was no different. A special thank you to BMO Harris Bank for once again serving as our presenting sponsor and Gaylor Electric who in addition to their financial support, provided the golfers with a wonderful lunch and dinner.”
“This event takes a lot of careful planning to ensure everyone enjoys a great a day of golf, and we couldn’t have done it without all our sponsors and volunteers,” said Polly Craig, philanthropy officer of Riverview Health Foundation. “Congratulations to Integrity One Technologies who shot 53 to win the 29th Heartfelt Thanks Golf Tournament.”
Riverview Health Foundation creates meaningful charitable opportunities that benefit Riverview Health, and with the support of donors and partners, its goal is to improve the health and quality of life of those in the community.
