The 27th Annual Mount Nittany Health Golf Classic, held Saturday, August 12, at the Penn State Golf Courses, netted a record breaking $176,000, with all proceeds supporting an expansion to the Mount Nittany Medical Center cardiac catheterization lab. In total, more than $2.2 million has been raised to help advance healthcare in the region since the Golf Classic’s inception in 1991.
The fully accredited cardiac catheterization lab is used during an emergency to intervene when a patient is having a heart attack; it can also be used to identify and correct other health conditions of the heart. The renovations will include a new catheterization table with an imaging system and an advanced patient monitoring system.
“We are so thankful for the support that continues to make this a premier tournament in our community and supports so many of the quality services that Mount Nittany Health provides for this region,” said Matt Hardy, executive director, Mount Nittany Health Foundation.
According to Foundation staff who organized the event, 240 golfers teed off, and more than 120 volunteers assisted with coordination of the day.
A unique feature of Mount Nittany Medical Center’s Golf Classic is the random drawing of one registered golfer for a grand prize of $12,000 or a 2017 Chevrolet Spark. Kay Kustanbauter won the option during this year’s drawing. The tournament also featured a 50/50 drawing totaling $1,710, and a Jamaican trip raffle for a seven-day vacation to a luxury villa on Jamaica’s south coast. The winner of both was Dr. Raymond Nungesser. The Bidding for Good online auction also brought in record numbers, totaling just under $30,000.
Team prizes for each flight were awarded to the top 16 teams placing 1-4 in both net and gross scores. The four first-place teams on the Blue Course and White Course were:
Additionally, prizes were awarded for longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt. Chuck Carroll again provided photography for the event, and a number of additional photos can be viewed at foundation.mountnittany.org/golf-classic.
