FORT MYERS, Fla.- Red Sox stars and golfers hit the links on Friday, Feb. 27 at the Forest Country Club for the 22nd annual Red Sox Children’s Hospital Celebrity Classic. Those taking part will enjoy a luncheon, on-course refreshments and contests, golf awards and a wonderful dinner following play.
As in the past, all funds raised by the events will be matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis by longtime Children’s Hospital supporters. The event is expected to raise more than a million dollars total.
In addition to the matching sponsors, other major supporters of the Boston Red Sox Children’s Hospital Celebrity Classic Event Series include Wells Fargo Insurance Services, Scanlon Auto Group, Florida Radiology Consultants, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, PNC Healthcare, WebTPA, Galeana Automotive Group, Akerman LLP and CVS Health.
“We welcome everyone to come out, have a great time and help a great cause – making sure local children and their families have access to the finest possible medical care, right here at home, at Golisano Children’s Hospital,” said Sharon MacDonald, chief foundation officer for Lee Memorial Health System Foundation.
“Each year this event gets bigger and better thanks to the generosity of our matching sponsors, major supporters and our friends at The Forest Country Club. In the end, everyone involved helps our young patients receive the vital care they need and deserve.”
