Proceeds to benefit the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Mount Nittany Medical Center
The 25th Annual Mount Nittany Medical Center Golf Classic was held on Saturday, August 15, 2015 at the Penn State Golf Courses raising $158,000 for the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Mount Nittany Medical Center. Over $2 million has been raised to help advance healthcare in the region since the Golf Classic's inception 25 years ago.
Proceeds from this year’s Golf Classic will benefit the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Mount Nittany Medical Center, which has seen steady growth since it first opened in April 2000. Since then, the Cath Lab has performed more than 4,280 diagnostic catheterizations and 2,000 cardiac interventions, including 423 on patients experiencing a life-threatening event requiring immediate treatment. A much-needed renovation to the lab will include a new cath table with imaging system and an advanced patient monitoring system, improving the patient experience.
Golfers enjoyed a round of golf; a boxed lunch, courtesy of Subway, post-play reception and awards dinner, sponsored by Curtze Food Service; commemorative gift sponsored by Rex Energy and Shaner Hotel Group; and in-cart refreshments and snacks, courtesy of Bittner Vending, Pepsi and Roaring Spring Bottling.

A unique feature of Mount Nittany Medical Center's Golf Classic is the random drawing of one registered golfer for a grand prize of $10,000 or a Subaru Impreza car. This year's winner, Dave Lingenfelter, chose the vehicle.
The event also hosted an online auction through Bidding for Good and raised $11,500. Additionally, a 50/50 raffle was held and Dick Rider was the winner of $1,640 and donated a portion back to The Foundation.
