MRH Foundation Golf Event Sept. 6th

MARLETTE - The Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH) Foundation’s golf committee will hold its 10th Annual Driving for Health Golf Scramble on Thurs., Sept. 6 at the Lapeer Country Club. The support that we receive for this event each year is phenomenal. Thanks to last year’s event supporters, we netted $26,877 to benefit the acute care/swing bed renovation project at Marlette Regional Hospital. This project will once again be the beneficiary of our 2018 event proceeds as the MRH Foundation has a remaining fundraising balance of approximately $35,000 to get this project started. If area businesses are interested in golfing or sponsoring this year’s event, please register soon by contacting the Marlette Regional Hospital Foundation office at 989-635-4011 or 989-635-4012. In-kind contributions are also welcome for our raffles, and all contributions are tax deductible.
