Preparations are underway for an August 16 Charity Golf Scramble organized by the North Lincoln Hospital Foundation and taking place at Salishan Resort.
Now in its 24th year, this popular event will help raise funds for the purchase of medical equipment for the new Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital, scheduled to open in February 2020 in Lincoln City.
“The scramble has been a hugely popular event over the years,” said Cathy Sandoval, the foundation’s executive director. “Whether you are a champion on the course or don’t know the difference between a wedge and a nine iron, the goal is simply to have as much fun as you can while helping to raise money for an important cause.”
The $42 million hospital project is entirely funded by the nonprofit Samaritan Health Services, and North Lincoln Hospital Foundation has committed to raise an additional $7 million through community philanthropy.
Golf Scramble activities will begin with registration and a boxed breakfast at 8 am and a shotgun start at 9 am. The barbecue awards lunch follows the conclusion of tournament play.
