Fourth annual Teeing Off for Tribal Health Golf Classic fundraiser a swinging successJuly 24, 2015
Last Friday, ANTHC’s Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation took its unique and powerful fundraising efforts to the fairways for the fourth annual installment of its popular Teeing Off for Tribal Health Golf Classic. The morning event drew 74 players and 19 teams who raised awareness of the Foundation’s work and more than $26,000 for initiatives designed to strengthen communities and improve health care and services for Alaska Native people across our state.
Sponsors also provided more than $21,000 in in-kind contributions, including the donation of a photobooth for the day by the Alaska Photobooth Company and breakfast provided by NANA Management Services.
The tournament was held at Moose Run Golf Course on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. A team sponsored by Snow White Linen Supply won the event; the Matanuska Mulligans team finished second; and Yukon Equipment’s team placed third. Twenty-five volunteers from ANTHC, Klondike Advertising and MSI Communications helped the event run smoothly.
HANF thanks all golfers, volunteers, and sponsors, including a number of new sponsors and participants including: Neeser Construction, Inc, GCI Connect MD, Alaska Photobooth Company, VALIC, Cange & Chambers, NANA Management Services, ConocoPhillips Alaska, Klondike Advertising, Lynden, BiNW, Northern Printing, Craig Taylor Equipment, Parker Smith & Feek, BDO, Inc., Bradley Reid + Associates, Alaska Airlines, Lakefront Anchorage Hotel, PenAir, Excalibur Sports, and Sky High Marketing. HANF extends a special thank you to Neeser Construction, who sponsored the awards luncheon and is a generous supporter of the Foundation’s other efforts.
“On a gorgeous Anchorage summer day our golfers, donors and volunteers all showed up with a spirit that made the event inspiring and fun,” said Carrie Brown, Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation Director. “We always look forward to the Golf Classic and we truly appreciate everyone who supported this event and the Foundation’s work. Their participation and giving truly makes an impact on our Tribal Heath system. Together, we can make a difference!”
The Foundation now shift gears to planning its 2015 Workplace Giving Campaign set for this September to encourage ANTHC employees to donate to the Tribal health causes they care about.
