Prince Frederick, MD – The CalvertHealth Foundation recently held its 30th annual Benefit Golf Classic at Old South Country Club in Lothian on May 6, 2019. More than 150 participants which, included sponsors, golfers and supporters helped to raise more than $92,000 to support the CalvertHealth Oncology Navigation Program.
This vital resource connects oncology patients with a skilled oncology nurse navigator to coordinate care between healthcare providers and the patient and to serve as a central point of support and information.
There was a full field of golfers that made up three flights. The winner of the first flight was the Kent Island Mechanical team. Leach Wallace Associates, Inc. was the winning team of the second flight and the team from Crothall Healthcare won the third flight.
Tournament Co-Chair Pat Petricko shared, “We could not have this event without the incredibly generous sponsors, enthusiastic golfers and wonderful volunteers who come out year after year to support this great cause. We are already looking forward to next year’s event.”
CalvertHealth President and CEO Dean Teague expressed his gratitude to the golfers, sponsors and employees who make it all possible. He said, “Thank you all for participating in this important event for our Foundation as we come together to raise funds for oncology nurse navigation to serve our patients with cancer. Nurse navigators play a critical role in the cancer journey faced by many of our patients.”
Guest of honor, cancer survivor and CalvertHealth employee Renee Sbrocco shared, “Calvert is a very small community, but CalvertHealth is a great big family.” Sbrocco shared the story of her journey with breast cancer and how the support of her oncology nurse navigator helped her face her diagnosis and treatment with an “I can do this” attitude. Sbrocco has been a long-time oncology nurse at CalvertHealth.
Since the inaugural Benefit Golf Classic in 1990, the event has raised more than $1 million to fund patient care equipment and vital hospital services at CalvertHealth Medical Center.
