ELMHURST –  The 13th annual Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation Golf Classic takes place on Monday, June 6, at the River Forest Country Club in Elmhurst. The presenting sponsor of this year’s Golf Classic is Gilbane Building Company.

Proceeds from this year’s event will once again help fund the walking path around the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital New Main Campus for staff and visitors. The walking path was selected by the Golf Classic Committee in recognition of the funds it has raised for the new hospital. This year’s Golf Classic will be particularly exciting as it will “tee-off” our plans to celebrate the opening of the New Main Campus with a series of events held during the month of June and final preparations for the arrival of patients on June 25.

Individual golf spots are still available; the cost is $400 per golfer and $1,600 per foursome. A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are still available as well. To register, or for more information, please call the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation at (630) 782-7829.

The Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation is the fundraising and gift-receiving arm of Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 1980 to encourage and receive contributions that enhance the delivery of high-quality healthcare services for those who live and work in the communities served by Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare. Today, former patients, employees, physicians, community residents, business leaders and volunteers, as well as Guild members and other friends of the Hospital, continue to have a positive influence on the quality of healthcare services in the communities through their generous support.
