Boca Regional Heading Back to the Greens for Annual Golf Tournament

Boca Regional is looking forward to its 22nd Annual Golf Tournament at Boca West Country Club on Monday, Oct. 14 with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. The event is hosted by Honorary Chairs, Marvin and Sandra Rubin, with Co-chairs, Amy Ross and Judi Larkin along with a dedicated golf committee determined to surpass participation and top last year’s proceeds.

The hospital is elated to have Constellation Brands and Sands Family Foundation as our 2019 Tournament Sponsor and subsequent years of 2020 and 2021.

The hospital’s 2018 golf tournament was the largest on record, hosting 340 golfers and raising more than $500,000 to benefit the Ron & Kathy Assaf Center for Excellence in Nursing, the beneficiary of the golf tournament since its inception in 1997.

“We take pride in our nurses and our nurses are truly the key to quality healthcare,” says Caitlin Dent, Special Events Development Associate at Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation. “The Center provides many personal and professional opportunities for our nurses, which includes scholarships that support their professional advancement.”

Helicopter ball drop

One of many highlights at the event features a helicopter golf ball drop where hundreds of golf balls are dropped onto the course. The lucky person with the numbered golf ball that drops in the hole, or is closest to the hole, will win a weekend experience to the 2020 Masters Golf Championship in Augusta, Georgia.  All golf sponsors and participants receive a numbered golf ball for the helicopter ball drop. For those wanting to improve their chances to win the Masters experience, additional balls can be purchased for $100 each.

After a day on the greens, golfers and guests attend a fabulous awards dinner with a live auction and an opportunity to bid on the 2019 JM Lexus Champions for Charity Golf Tournament in Pebble Beach, California.

“Our donors are incredibly generous,” Dent says. “They look forward to our golf tournament each year…it’s one of the largest charity tournaments in South Florida and more importantly, they want to support our Nursing Team at Boca Regional!”
