HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation Golf and Tennis Classic event raises $54,000


HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation held its 28th annual Golf and Tennis Classic at the Eau Claire Country Club on July 30 with 180 golfers, 13 tennis players and dozens of volunteers. Proceeds from the event – $54,000 – will benefit the hospital’s cancer care services.

“Over its history more than $1.2 million has been raised at the Classic to benefit patient care at Sacred Heart Hospital,” Ann Kaiser, CFRE, development director, HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation. “It’s an honor to receive such extraordinary charitable support from the community.”

This year’s Classic marked the 11th year of an annual tradition – the “Thrill of Victory Award.” Each year, the award is given to a hospital patient who has made an outstanding recovery in his or her health. This year’s recipient was Christopher Niles, who suffered a stroke at 34.

The hospital’s cancer care services team was also honored with an award – the fifth-annual Heart of Excellence Award – for providing highly skilled care with respect and compassion.

Next year’s Golf and Tennis Classic will be held July 29, 2019.
