FULTON – The 19th edition of the popular St. Luke-Francis Boyce Memorial Charity Golf Tournament tees off on August 13 at Battle Island Golf Course.
The four-person “Captain and Crew” format attracts both serious and novice golfers alike; but no matter the skill level, the event promises to be another fun-filled day for all participants.
The tournament entry fee is $80 per person.
The field will be limited to the first twenty-five teams to register. The entry fee includes greens fees, cart, and on-course games, with lunch and awards immediately following at Kristen’s Battle Island Club House Café.
“Proceeds from the charity golf tournament provide direct support to our organization’s ‘Don’t Stop Wishing’ program,” said Greg Osetek, director of community relations at St. Luke. “This important program provides resources that helps enhance the quality of life enjoyed by residents at all four affiliate locations; St. Luke Health Services, Bishop’s Commons, Michaud Residential Health Services and St. Francis Commons. Funds are used to help residents to maintain connections with our community by sponsoring trips, activities and events throughout the year.”
To date, sponsors of the 19th Annual Boyce Memorial Charity Golf Tournament include Environmental Services Specialist Corp; Fulton Savings Bank; Harbor Pharmacy; The Hayner-Hoyt Corporation; IV4, Inc.; Josephine Yang-Patyi, Esq.; Rehab Resources; Sodexo and Usherwood Office Technology.
The Bonadio Group will sponsor a $20,000 Hole-In-One contest; one of the fun and challenging on-course games taking place during the event.
The charity golf tournament honors the late Francis Boyce, first administrator of St. Luke Health Services and past president of the board of directors.
An avid golfer, Boyce helped shape the St. Luke organization during his thirty-five year tenure with the not-for-profit healthcare provider.
