Milford Hospital Golf Classic raises funds for hopsital improvements

The 6th Annual Milford Hospital Golf Classic will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at the Country Club of Woodbridge.

The Golf Classic is among Milford Hospital’s largest fundraisers and proceeds will enable the hospital to better serve their patients and the community by funding enhancements to their infrastructure and programs, hospital officials said.

The Golf Classic kicks off at 10 a.m. with a pre-golf barbecue luncheon, practice on the driving range and a putting contest. Shotgun start will be at 11:30 a.m.

There will be a scramble format, with multiple on-course contests, followed by a cocktail reception, dinner and awards ceremony. Registration deadline is Sept. 18. Fee is $175 per person or $600 per foursome.

The day’s festivities include the opportunity to win one of four Hole in One prizes, including a new car, sponsored by Napoli Motors. The dinner and awards ceremony will include a silent auction and raffle featuring overnight hotel stays, jewelry, golf outings and accessories and a full day of yachting onboard a 42’ sailboat with food and beverages donated by Wines and More of Milford.

“We are extremely grateful for the support of our sponsors, players and volunteers who help to make this tournament a success year after year,” said Joseph Pelaccia, president and CEO of Milford Hospital. “Proceeds from events such as this provide important funding for us to remain at the forefront in providing technologically advanced, safe and effective healthcare to our patients and the community.”
