33rd Annual North Colorado Med Evac Golf Tournament raises over $44,000
The 33rd Annual North Colorado Med Evac Golf Tournament, hosted by the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation, was held on June 8, 2015, at the Greeley Country Club. Over 210 golfers, sponsors and volunteers joined forces to support the North Colorado Med Evac transport program, which has been serving the north Colorado region since 1982.
One of the oldest fund raising golf tournaments in Colorado, the event netted $44,000, with the proceeds earmarked for the purchase of life-saving flight medical equipment. Known for its excellence in safety, the flight teams have completed over 18,000 incident-free flights since 1982.
“We could not have asked for a better day to play golf. The weather was perfect,” said the NCMC Foundation’s director of Special Events and Marketing, Diana Wood. “It is remarkable to have over 210 golfers, sponsors and volunteers support our Med Evac program. It is one of the very few tournaments of this type in the country.”
Taking home top honors from the double shotgun, Arizona scramble format was Team Spradley Barr Ford Lincoln of Greeley, consisting of Mark Cook, who also served as this year’s tournament chair, Grayson Cook, Kirk Harrison, and Nick Umholtz.
A poolside banquet concluded the day with dinner along with a silent auction and trophy presentations.
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!
