Golf tourney raises money for Barton

The Barton Foundation will sponsor its 12th annual golf tournament June 17 at Genoa Lakes Golf Resort in Genoa. The festivities begin at 12:30 p.m. with registration, a putting contest and fun warm up activities. The no-pressure, purely fun scramble golf tournament starts at 2 p.m. Various competitions throughout the course give golfers chances to win numerous contests and take away a special gift at the end of the day. Golfers will also have the opportunity to win a 2006 Eddie Bauer Expedition, courtesy of South Shore Motors, with a hole-in-one contest, as well as other incredible prizes for hole in ones on three additional holes. As the golfing ends, guests are invited to join the awards party with a complimentary beverage and announcement of raffle prize winners. The $175 per person entry fee (of which $65 is tax deductible) includes green fees, cart, an IZOD golf jacket, golfer amenity package, entry into all competitions, a barbecue dinner and complimentary cocktails.

Each year we have made changes to enhance the event and draw greater interest from returning golfers, as well as new supporters. Over the years, more than $360,000 has been raised from this event. All proceeds help build the Endowment Fund.

Endowment investment earnings have allowed Barton Hospital Foundation to assist with funding for various projects, including: construction of the helipad in 2001, the implementation of the hospice program and resource center in 2002, the purchase of automated external defibrillators for El Dorado and Douglas Counties in 2003, Life-line units for Hospice in 2004 and the Healing Design Program in 2005.
