Golf outing drives St. Francis Healthcare Foundation projects

INDIANAPOLIS – The rolling fairways and sprawling greens of The Legends of Indiana Golf Course again will be the setting for the 2009 Golf Outing sponsored by the St. Francis Healthcare Foundation.

The event, now in its 23rd year, brings together board members, Indianapolis-area civic and business leaders, and St. Francis Hospital & Health Centers physicians and staff for a full day of golf, fellowship and fun with the goal of raising funds for various foundation projects.

The outing gets under way 8 a.m., Thursday, June 25 with a shotgun start with afternoon golfers teeing it up at 1:30 p.m. Participants also will be offered breakfast and a joint luncheon.

Throughout the day, various products and services – generously donated by local individuals and businesses – will be auctioned.

Co-chairs of this year’s event are foundation board members Travis Tucker of BremnerDuke Healthcare Real Estate, and Christopher “Topper” Doehring, M.D., associate director of the St. Francis Family Residency Medical Program.

Proceeds from the outing support the foundation’s funding mission and priorities in areas such as care for the dying, underserved and those in spiritual need, and the professional development of staff.
