Montgomery, Ala- More than 220 golfers and 28 tennis players participated in the Swinging FORE Healthcare golf and tennis tournament benefiting the Jackson Hospital Foundation Friday, Aug. 23. With 14 vendor sponsors, the tournament raised nearly $110,000 for the foundation.
“Swinging FORE Healthcare is one of the best tournaments in the River Region,” said Patrick Wood, development director for the foundation. “We continue to be humbled by the support of our vendors and participants. Our vendors go the extra mile to provide entertainment that makes this tournament truly unique.”
The tournament was hosted by Wynlakes Golf & Country Club, where vendors set up tents on nearly every hole to provide food, drinks and fun for participants. Vendors were awarded prizes for best decorated tent and other categories.
Now in its eighth year, Swinging FORE Healthcare continues to grow. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit cardiovascular services at Jackson Hospital.
