Golf outing takes swing in support of St. Francis Healthcare Foundation projects

INDIANAPOLIS – The rolling fairways and sprawling greens at Eagle Creek Golf Club again will be the setting of the 2011 Golf Outing sponsored by the St. Francis Healthcare Foundation.

The event, now in its 25th year, brings together board members, Indianapolis-area civic and business leaders, and Franciscan St. Francis 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 7:30 a.m. Thursday, June 23 with a shotgun start with afternoon golfers teeing it up at 1:30 p.m. Participants also will be offered breakfast and luncheon.

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

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.

Co-chairing this year’s event is Christopher “Topper” Doehring, M.D., St. Francis’ vice president of medical affairs, and Travis Tucker of BremnerDuke Healthcare Real Estate.
