It’s Time to Hit the Greens at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation’s 10th Annual Pro/Am Golf Tournament

CHATHAM, ON (Monday, July 13, 2015): On Friday, August 14, 2015, the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation (CKHA) will host its 10th Annual Pro/Am Golf Tournament at Maple City Country Club in Chatham. Proceeds from the tournament will support the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation’s $6.9 million CKHA Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign.

About the Pro/Am Golf Tournament
As one of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation’s signature events, participants in the 10th Annual Pro/Am will enjoy 18 holes of golf with a CPGA golf professional, many opportunities to win great prizes through ‘putting’ and ‘closest-to-the-pin’ contests, an elegant cocktail reception and a fabulous dinner and live and silent auctions.

As you know, the Pro/Am Golf Tournament is one of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation’s signature events. Last year’s event was a tremendous success, with more than $40,000 raised for the CKHA Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign. We hope to surpass that total this year, by once again raising funds to support CKHA in the purchase of much-needed equipment for CKHA’s Diagnostic Imaging Department.

Registration is open. Individual golfers may participate in the tournament for $325 and foursomes may participate for $1,300.

About the CKHA Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign
As part of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation’s directive to raise funds to support CKHA’s Highest Priority Needs, the CKHA Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign was launched to support CKHA in the purchase of new diagnostic imaging equipment for CKHA’s Diagnostic Imaging Department.

Phase 1 of this campaign will focus on the purchase of a new Fluoroscopy System, a new CT Scan, new Ultrasound Equipment and a new Bone Densitometer – these four key pieces of equipment serve almost every program offered at CKHA and are key for diagnoses in a multitude of cases, including heart, stroke, cancer, orthopaedics, rehabilitation, obstetrics and gynecology, just to name a few.

To date, more than $2.6 million has been raised for this important campaign.
