Golfers Achieve Fundraising Goal

Over the summer, philanthropic-minded golfers played in the 15th Annual Shepherd’s Hope Celebrity Golf Classic at Reunion Resort to raise money for the medical services of the uninsured. Foursomes were paired with a celebrity player, including Orlando Magic ambassador and former professional basketball player Nick Anderson, former NFL player for the New England Patriots Johnny Rembert, and other notable figures. Participants raised almost $100,000 to benefit those in need of free medical care.

Top scorers included Colorvision International with a 1st place gross win and Wyndham Vacation Ownership with a 1st place net win, A.T.A.P Companies who scored 2nd place gross and the Joan Kidd, MD, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Cup team who scored 2nd place net, Starling Automotive Group with a 3rd place gross win and Sam Steele Foursome earning 4th place gross.

“The vital success of the Celebrity Golf Classic ensures that Central Floridians in need can access Shepherd’s Hope compassionate free health care thanks, in part, to the impact of individual donors, community partners, and event supporters…” says Marni Stahlman, president and CEO of Shepherd’s Hope.
