Penn Highlands Healthcare/KTH Architects Golf Classic Benefits System’s Four Hospitals

July 24, 2018


With 75 teams participating at four of the region’s golf courses, the Penn Highlands Healthcare/KTH Architects Golf Classic recently was held to benefit projects at the system’s four hospitals.

“Thank you to all those who participated in our golf classic. This tournament is our health system’s largest fundraiser of the year,” said Donna Haney, Fund Development coordinator at Penn Highlands Healthcare. “As always, proceeds from this event support patient care at each of the four hospitals.”

The June 22 event was held at the following four courses: Bavarian Hills Golf Course in St. Marys; Clearfield-Curwensville Country Club in Clearfield; DuBois Country Club in DuBois; and Pinecrest Country Club in Brookville.

Each golfer and sponsor had the opportunity to choose where their donation is directed. Each hospital designated a project:

  • Penn Highlands Brookville – Outpatient Behavioral Health;
  • Penn Highlands Clearfield – The Rehabilitation Center;
  • Penn Highlands DuBois – Neonatal Intensive Care Unit infant warmer;
  • Penn Highlands Elk – Laboratory coagulation/hematology instruments.

The first place teams included Penn Highlands DuBois Radiology at Bavarian Hills Golf Course, Boyles Insurance at Clearfield-Curwensville Country Club, UPMC Health Plan at DuBois Country Club and The Nutrition Group at Pinecrest Country Club.

“The generous contributions of our communities have helped make our annual tournament a huge success. This year, we had more than 150 individuals and businesses that supported our tournament with monetary and in-kind donations,” Haney said. “The golf committee would like to give special thanks to KTH Architects, Cerner Corporation and PNC Bank for being our major sponsors as well as all of the other generous businesses and individuals who supported the tournament.”

The following local businesses provided the prizes for the Hole-In-One contests this year: Helmbold & Stewart Insurance, Hoak Insurance Company, St. Mary’s Insurance Company and Stoltz Family Dealerships.

Golfers not only enjoyed a day of golf, but also were treated to hot dogs served by the hospital presidents at the “Penn Highlands Chill & Grill” located at each course. In addition, there were games, prizes and raffles and dinner was served in the dining room at each course.

Plans are already underway for next year’s golf classic, which will be held Friday, June 21, 2019.  For more information, please contact Haney at 814-375-3901, or watch for updates on the health system’s website at www.phhealthcare.org.
