Piedmont Fayette Hospital Auxiliary hosts 10th annual Golf Classic May 10


Have you been looking for a good reason to spend time on the green? Then sign up for the 10th Annual Piedmont Fayette Hospital Auxiliary Golf Classic, on Monday, May 10, at the Flat Creek Country Club in Peachtree City. Proceeds from the Golf Classic will be used to fund several projects for Piedmont Fayette Hospital, including ongoing operation of the courtesy shuttles, Cancer Wellness at Piedmont Fayette Hospital, and student scholarships for study in the medical fields.
To celebrate the 10th annual Golf Classic, ten prize holes will be on the course as well as baskets for raffle.  The day features a putting contest and awards ceremony. And to complement the day of great golf and friendly competition, players will be provided a continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and refreshments during and after play, golf cart, and a chance to claim bragging rights to the 2010 Golf Classic! Each player will receive a customized portable sports chair and a bag filled with goodies.
“The Golf Classic is an important fundraising event to the Auxiliary and hospital to help provide healthcare and health-related services for patients, physicians and the community,” says Alan Koth, president of the Piedmont Fayette Hospital Auxiliary. “This event is a great way for members of the Fayette community to come together and support the hospital while interacting with one another.”
If you would like to sponsor the tournament, packages ranging from $175 to $10,000 are still available. Current major sponsors include The Coca-Cola Company and Brasfield & Gorrie General Contractors.
The annual golf tournament is one of the Auxiliary’s biggest endeavors of the year.  More than 275 active members of the Auxiliary contribute their time and talents and have volunteered over 520,000 hours of service since before the hospital opened in 1997, in addition to their annual financial contributions. The Auxiliary volunteers are always familiar and friendly faces at Piedmont Fayette Hospital, whether they are driving the courtesy shuttle, greeting and assisting guests at information desks, in the gift shop or raising funds for a variety of hospital projects. 

The Auxiliary coordinates several community activities, including community book fairs and blood drives.  They also participate on a state level through the Georgia Hospital Association’s Council of Auxiliary Volunteers. 

This year the Auxiliary will award 12 scholarships totaling $9,000 to Fayette County residents studying in an accredited Georgia school for a career in the medical field. Eight of these scholarships are being awarded to current Fayette County high school seniors for the 2010-2011 academic year.
