A mid-summer day of golf, food and fun raised $425,000 at the 20th annual Lowell General Hospital Challenge Golf Tournament on Monday, August 24, at The International golf resort in Bolton, Mass.
The donations from golfers and sponsors will support the expansion of Lowell General Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit on its main campus. The project will renovate former emergency room space in the hospital’s Hanchett Building into an expanded ICU unit with 11-12 beds, providing improved access and the latest technology to help critically ill patients.
A total of 244 golfers sold out the prestigious golf club’s Pines and Oaks courses and were treated breakfast, an on-course BBQ lunch and beverage service, cocktail hour and an exclusive sit-down dinner for sponsors. The event also featured a raffle for an Apple Smartwatch, a silent auction that included a clambake for 25 people donated by Lenzi’s Catering, and six live auction items that included two Maine getaways.
“As much fun as this event is every year, the money raised makes a tremendous impact on the ability of Lowell General Hospital to offer the best possible care to its patients,” said Lowell General Hospital President Jody White. “We thank The International, lead sponsors Cerner and Enterprise Bank, and all of the sponsors, golfers and donors for making this one of our most successful fundraisers.”
