Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation Century Group Delta Health Classic Goes “Golfless”

May 22, 2020

Due to provincial restrictions on large gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation has made the decision to take the 22-year old golf tournament and make it golfless. The Century Group Delta Health Golfless Classic will take place online from Thursday, September 10, 2020 to Thursday, September 17, 2020 and will raise funds for a new service and piece of equipment for Delta Hospital - an echo ultrasound.

 

“We could have made the tough decision to cancel the fundraiser altogether, but as the need for an echo ultrasound is a major priority that makes the need for our second largest fundraiser of the year, even more important,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “We are so grateful to Century Group for their generous decision to remain as our Title Sponsor and fully supporting this new format, we couldn’t do it without them. We have received an outpouring of support from our community during these last few months and that makes us hopeful that our other long standing sponsors remain on board and additional sponsors join in on supporting this important fundraiser for Delta Hospital.”

 

Century Group has a long history of supporting the Delta Community through golf. “We held our own George Hodgins Memorial Golf Tournament for charity for many years. This would have been our sixth year as Title Sponsor of the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation tournament. Our hospital needs our support more than ever during this pandemic and we are proud to support this innovative and important fundraiser during this challenging time. We hope others can do the same.” says Sean Hodgins President, Century Group.

 

This year’s Century Group Delta Health Golfless Classic will include an online auction, 50/50 lottery, contests, and an opportunity to make a charitable donation. The non-event will hopefully raise the final dollars needed to purchase the $300K echo ultrasound. This brand new service is one of the most important diagnostic tools to be added to Delta Hospital in the past 10 years and will transform the way we look after our cardiac patients at Delta Hospital and allow them to receive the best care right in their own community. At Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation we are dedicated to ensuring Delta Hospital Staff is well-equipped with the right tools to perform life-saving care. We are working hard to raise funds for our current health concerns as well as for the future of healthcare in our community.
