34th Annual North Colorado Med Evac Golf Tournament raises over $40,000
The 34th annual North Colorado Med Evac Golf Tournament, hosted by the NCMC Foundation on June 13 at the Greeley Country Club, raised over $40,000 in net proceeds, with over 210 golfers, sponsors and volunteers participating in the popular double shotgun scramble.
One of the region’s oldest charity golf events, the NCMC Foundation has generated an astounding $900,000 in net proceeds for the Med Evac program. This funding has provided important equipment such as flight suits, helmets, ventilators, portable IV pumps and training manikins, along with fire retardant outerwear and educational opportunities for staff. Known for its excellence in safety, the flight teams have completed over 18,000 incident-free flights since the first flight in 1982.
Additionally, a portion of this year’s proceeds were designated towards the Heart Safe City initiative, which targets the placement of AEDs throughout Weld County as well as CPR education and training for community members.
“I want to thank all of the participants and sponsors who once again made this event so successful,” said Diana Wood, Director of Special Events and Marketing. “The Foundation greatly appreciates all of the people who came together to help us raise funds for the Med Evac program and Heart Safe City.”
Taking home top honors from the tournament was the Supplyworks Team consisting of Tim Warde, Greg Tews, Bill Regar, and Dennis Gierhart.
The NCMC Foundation, founded in 1975, has served as North Colorado Medical Center’s philanthropic partner in supporting healthcare at NCMC and in the community. During that time, the Foundation has been entrusted as stewards of over $50 million in charitable gifts.
A big thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers who make the event so successful!
