28th Annual Golf Classic to benefit cardiovascular services at Medical Center

The 28th Annual Mount Nittany Health Golf Classic will be held Saturday, August 11, at the Penn State Blue & White Golf Courses, with a shotgun start beginning promptly at 11:00 am.

Funds raised from this four-person scramble tournament will benefit cardiovascular services at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Team prizes for each flight will be awarded to the 16 winning teams placing first through fourth in both net and gross scores on each course. Prizes will be awarded for each course for the longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt. The event will also feature a putting contest with cash prizes. The day will include a 50/50 drawing, and one lucky golfer will also win his or her choice of $12,000 or a 2018 Chevrolet Spark.

For a second year, there will be a Jamaican trip raffle, sponsored by Brenner International. Take the chance to win a seven-day trip to Amedis Villa off Jamaica’s South Coast. Amedis Villa offers a private beach, six bedrooms (sleeps 12), and two swimming pools. Only 250 tickets will be sold at $100/ticket. Visit amedisjamaica.com for more information.

All participating golfers will enjoy a round of golf, lunch courtesy of Shute Battaglia Wealth Advisors, commemorative gift sponsored by Alexander Building Construction - A Butz Family Company, and in-cart refreshments and snacks. A post-play reception and dinner awards ceremony will be held, sponsored by Curtze Food Service.

Having raised more than $2.2 million since its inception in 1991, the Golf Classic supports critical programs and equipment purchases at Mount Nittany Medical Center, benefiting patients across the region. Attendees can participate through volunteering, sponsorship and individual golfer opportunities. Additionally, golfers and non-golfers alike can participate in an online auction beginning Monday, July 30, through Tuesday, August 14, at noon by visiting biddingforgood.com/mnmc.
