Friends of UVA Children hosting golf tournament, raffle for a great cause

By Jerry Ratcliffe

Friends of UVA Children’s Family Centered Care Program is holding a fund-raising golf tournament and raffle with all proceeds going toward supporting the basic needs of families during their child’s stay in the hospital.

The tournament will be held Monday, June 27, at Birdwood Golf Course at Boar’s Head Resort, with a 10 a.m. shotgun start followed by a reception and awards ceremony. There will be an 8:30 a.m. registration with continental breakfast, with the putting green and driving range open at 8:45 (boxed lunch with the shotgun start).

Meanwhile, anyone can buy the raffle tickets ($100 per ticket, only 375 available). Prizes: two nights at Boar’s Head Resort, round of golf for four at Birdwood, Keswick Hall’s Full Cry, Farmington Country Club. You can purchase raffle tickets here.

UVA Children’s experiences 120,000 pediatric visits annually, including outpatient appointments and inpatient overnight stays, with 40 percent of those families facing financial hardships. Last year alone, more than 5,000 of those families traveled two or more hours to receive care.

The Family Centered Care programs provide support for families in myriad of ways, from transportation, gas, food vouchers, lodging, emotional support and access to child life specialists.

By supporting this golf tournament and raffle, you can make a difference in helping these children get the help they need and support their families in the process.
