Playing for Fundsies is Scheduled for July 21, 2018


The 26th Annual Cabinet Peaks Medical Center Foundation's Playing for Fundsies Golf Tournament is almost here! As always, the CPMC Foundation is preparing for a fun filled 18-hole outing. This year the tournament takes place on Saturday, July 21st at Cabinet View Golf Club.

"There has been so much excitement around the new, fun twists we've put on the game in the last few years, and we can't wait for 2018's tournament! This year we are bringing back some old favorites and adding some new exciting twists for another round of hilarious golf, all for a good cause," announced Kate Stephens, Executive Director of the Foundation. "As in recent years, each hole has its own prize, so more of our participants have a chance to walk away a winner! Some of these prizes are for traditional golf contests, such as closest to the pin, and longest putt. Other holes have games that are much less traditional, but sure to be tons of fun!"

Stephens also mentioned that this year's tournament also has prizes for the first place team and for the last place team. "Since our tournament is known for fun on the course and twists on the classic game of golf, we enjoy rewarding the day's last place team as well as our winners," continued Stephens. "You don't have to be an amazing golfer, to join us, or to win prizes at Fundsies. We're keyed up for the event, and are looking for more golfers to join us!"

Proceeds from this year's Playing for Fundsies will be put toward the Foundation's 3D mammography Campaign. The 3D Mammography machine creates a three-dimensional picture of the breast using x-rays. It is cutting edge technology that takes multiple pictures from many angels, allowing physicians to see the breast in greater detail. 3D Mammography is proven to result in 54% more cancers detected and a 19% decrease in false negatives.

"This is an important life saving technology, and the Foundation is proud to be working hard to make it a reality for Lincoln County. We can't thank the community enough for realizing the importance our medical center has to the livelihood of our area and for supporting us year in and year out, through this golf tournament as well as our other events and fundraising endeavors," concluded Stephens.

Registration is $60 per golfer and includes breakfast, lunch, and 18 holes of golf. Winners will be announced at the club house at the conclusion of play.
