Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation Hosting Inaugural Golf Tournament

Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation will host a golf tournament Monday, May 17, at the Stones River Country Club in Murfreesboro to benefit its Nursery/Pediatric Fund.

The funds raised from this event will go directly to support the needs of newborn infants, and obstetric and pediatric patients at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford.

“We are so excited to be hosting our inaugural golf tournament to raise funds for the Nursery/Pediatric Fund,” said Virginia DeJean, director of the Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation. “Over the years, this fund has been used to purchase equipment such as infant warmers for the nursery and cardiac neo-natal intensive care cardiac monitors, provide car seats for families in need, and provide nurses and staff with financial assistance for continuing education.”

The tournament will begin with breakfast, and golfers will tee off at 9:30 a.m. on the picturesque, private course that runs alongside the Stones River. Lunch will be provided by The Alley on Main, along with complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the day. Each participant will receive a goody bag and a $25 gift certificate to the pro shop. In addition, golfers can compete for prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin, monster drive and putting contest.

“We hope golfers of all ages and skill levels will join us for a fun day of golf to benefit a very worthy fund,” DeJean said. “We are thrilled we could host an outdoor event that keeps everyone safe while raising funds for some of our smallest and most vulnerable patients.”

Corporate sponsorships are available and range from $1,000 to $5,000. The fee for a foursome is $700. To learn more about the tournament or to donate, visit https://give.stthomas.org/campaign/pediatric-golf-tournament/c329999.
