Swinging for a Cause: Abben Golf Classic Adjusts Format to Meet Safety Needs
on Friday, August 21, 2020
Annually the Abben Golf Classic provides a fun opportunity to support the regional cancer center while enjoying a fun day of golf and activities. However, as a healthcare entity, especially one that works closely with those who are immune compromised, it was necessary to make adjustments to the 2020 golf classic to help assure the safety of all participants.
“Traditionally the golf classic is held the last Sunday of August, with a wonderful crowd enjoying events indoors and outdoors. To avoid a huge gathering, we’ve decided to shake up the format a bit this year. With much appreciation to the accommodations provided by Randy Rohlfsen and the team at Emerald Hills, our Abben Golf Classic foursomes are able to choose the day, time and even weather that best fits their schedules to golf, ” explained Susan Zulk, Abben Cancer Center spokesperson. Similar to when the event is held on one day, golfers receive a gift bag and can turn in their scorecards to qualify for flight prizes.
“We truly appreciate our sponsors, who were eager to renew their support this year, understanding that the needs of the cancer center remain important,” Zulk expressed. “Likewise, we also understand some of our traditional supporters may need to take a pass this year, as the current health emergency has created a hardship for some businesses and individuals.”
Interested foursomes can register their team now through Aug. 30th at https://abben-golf-classic-virtual-event.perfectgolfevent.com/
