Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation hosts Fifth Annual Teeing Off for Tribal Health Golf ClassicAugust 19, 2016
ANTHC’s Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation recently hosted their fifth annual Teeing Off for Tribal Health Golf Classic fundraising event Friday, July 22 at the Moose Run Golf Course on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The one-day event drew 79 players and 20 teams. The Foundation received more than $80,400 in in-kind contributions and the golf tournament raised a total of $33,800 on behalf of its initiatives to strengthen communities and improve health care and services for Alaska Native people across our state.
A team sponsored by the Bering Straits Native Corporation won the best-ball tournament; the Neeser Construction, Inc. team finished second; and Snow White Linens’ team placed third. Eighteen volunteers from ANTHC helped the event run smoothly.
The Foundation thanks all golfers, volunteers and sponsors, including Neeser Construction, Inc., GCI Healthcare, Klondike Advertising, VALIC, Marsh & McLennan Agency, NANA Management Services, Craig Taylor Equipment Company, Lynden, Northern Printing, Alaska National Insurance Company, Automated Laundry Systems & Supply, Stoel Rives LLP, Landye Bennett Blumstein LLP, PacRim Coal, and Construction Machinery Industrial, LLC.
“Every year, this golf classic gets better and better, thanks to the special people who are committed to the event,” said Carrie Brown, Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation Director. “Thank you to all of our loyal sponsors, donors, golfers, and volunteers, who despite some rain, showed up in great spirits that made the event fun. Together this event raised money for a worthy cause that provides for the emotional needs of children dealing with health challenges that allow us to go above and beyond the basic level of care, from education to patient comfort.”
