The Excelsior Springs Health Care Foundation successfully hosted its 31st Annual Golf Tournament at the historic Excelsior Springs Golf Course on the first Friday in June. The event, aimed at supporting the expansion of services and innovative patient treatment at Excelsior Springs Hospital, proved to be a resounding success, generating a remarkable $29,000 in proceeds. This exceeded last year’s fundraising efforts by an impressive $6,000.

Golf enthusiasts and philanthropists alike flocked to the tournament, with a total of 72 players in attendance, many of whom were generous sponsors. The event received over $30,000 in donations, with the Excelsior Springs Medical Staff once again making a substantial contribution. Dr. Kent Powell, the Excelsior Springs Health Care Foundation’s Board President, expressed his admiration for the medical staff’s unwavering dedication and commitment to enhancing the hospital’s services as a collective force.

The festivities included an exciting raffle, enticing prizes at each hole, a lunch, and drinks for all participants. The much-anticipated Golf Ball Drop made a triumphant return, where donors purchased chances for their balls to land closest to the hole after being released from a considerable height via a cherry picker. This year’s lucky winner of the $1,000 prize was Bill Westerheide, representing Blue Sparrow Lawn and Landscaping.

The profits from the event will be instrumental in the growth and enhancement of healthcare services provided by Excelsior Springs Hospital. Christine Riegel, the Director of the Health Care Foundation, shed light on the hospital’s expanding Outpatient Clinic offerings. In addition to the existing Pediatric physicians, the clinic has welcomed a new dermatologist and an additional urologist, while ENT services have been reinstated to cater to the diverse healthcare needs of the community.
