Join us for the 16th Annual Baptist Health Golf Outing! The Foundation’s annual golf outing, benefitting the Buddies for Life program, is on Monday, June 3 at Big Spring Country Club. It will be a fun filled day of golf, great food, and excellent networking opportunities. There will be two flights this year, at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
This signature event is going into its 16th year, and will raise funds to support our Buddies for Life program, which provides pediatric patients and visitors a “buddy for life”, a small stuffed animal elephant to comfort them during their time at the hospital.
The Long family started this event, when they lost their daughter, Maria, to brain cancer when she was only 12 years old. Her favorite animal was an elephant, and she called everyone in the hospital her “buddy for life”. We continue to host the outing in Maria’s memory so that every child who is in the hospital or has a loved one in the hospital knows they are not alone.
Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $10,000, with teams starting at $4,000 and individual players at $1,000.
