Raises $132,000 for new technology for patients with severe asthma.
The 23rd Annual Mount Nittany Medical Center Golf Classic, held on August 17 at Penn State Golf Courses, raised $132,000 with all proceeds supporting the Medical Center's bronchial thermoplasty service, a new technology for treating patients with severe asthma. More than $1,810,256 has been raised to help advance healthcare in the region since the Golf Classic's inception 23 years ago.
The event hosted 252 golfers, and 120 volunteers assisted with day-of coordination.
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 Chevrolet Cobalt car. This year's winner was Dean Johnson, who chose the $10,000 cash prize.
