SBL Golf Benefit Set for June 8

May 23, 2018 8:28 a.m.

Sarah Bush Lincoln will host its 29th annual golf benefit on Friday, June 8, at Mattoon Golf & Country Club.Net proceeds from the event will benefit construction of Sarah Bush Lincoln’s new Heart Center.

Through its Life . . .Nothing Beats It campaign, SBL Health Foundation is committed to raising at least $2 million to support construction of the $31 million project. The addition on the southeast side of the Health Center will consolidate cardiac services including the addition of a second cardiac cath lab, 15 exam rooms for the cardiac and pulmonary clinic, a rehab gym, stress testing, echo cardiography, pulmonary function testing, EKG, and nuclear medicine. The second floor will house 20 additional private, inpatient rooms. The entire addition will be connected to each adjacent floor of the Health Center, including a new elevator going to the third and fourth floors. It is expected to open in the fall.

The event offers golfers the option of either a morning or afternoon flight. A continental breakfast will be available during morning registration, which begins at 6:30 am, prior to a 7:30 am tee off. Lunch will be served from 11 am to 2 pm, and registration for the afternoon flight, which tees off at 1 pm, will be from 11:30 am to 1 pm.

Prizes will be awarded to winners of challenges on nearly all 18 holes during a reception from 6:30 to 8 pm in the clubhouse. Prizes include: gift certificates from area restaurants; an Apple HomePod, furniture; Cardinals and Cubs baseball tickets; Chicago Bulls basketball tickets; Illinois football tickets; Nascar tickets; and outdoor living and patio items.

The lucky winner of a raffle will win a seven day/six night trip to Maui, Hawaii. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased for $10 each during the golf benefit. However, buy early to take advantage of the “buy one, get one free” offer available to anyone purchasing raffle tickets by June 7. The drawing will be June 8 during the evening reception but, you do not need to be present to win. Special thanks to Doug and Tracey McCord for the generous donation of their Hawaii home.
