Golf outing supports Franciscan Alliance Foundation-St. Francis Health projects

INDIANAPOLIS – The rolling fairways and sprawling greens at Eagle Creek Golf Club again will be the setting of the 2012 Golf Outing sponsored by the Franciscan Alliance Foundation – St. Francis Health.

The event, now in its 26th 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 with a nine-hole scramble at 9 a.m., Thursday, June 28. Golfers opting for 18 holes of play will tee it up at 1 p.m. Participants also will be offered breakfast, and luncheon. An awards dinner will be held at 6 p.m.

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

Each player/team fee includes a charitable contribution to the St. Francis Hospice House campaign that will be matched, thanks to a grant challenge issued by Franciscan Alliance.

The Hospice House would be the only facility of its kind in south-central Indiana and will serve many surrounding counties. Its features include:

  • 16-suite facility with room for expansion to 32 suites
  • Bright gathering areas, kitchen and dining areas
  • Garden-like landscaping and a chapel for meditation and worship
  • Unlimited visitation from loved ones and family members, including the family pet
