INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – The rolling fairways and sprawling greens at Eagle Creek Golf Club again will be the setting of the 2016 Golf Outing, sponsored by the Franciscan Alliance Foundation-Central Indiana Region.

The event, now in its 30th 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.
Proceeds from this year’s outing will benefit Franciscan St. Francis Health’s Neighborhood Health Center, located near Garfield Park south of Downtown Indianapolis. This family medicine-centered practice is designed for families without access to affordable health care.
The Neighborhood Health Center’s focus is to provide primary and preventive care as well as health education. All services are rendered on a sliding fee scale. Patients are charged only what they can afford without compromising the financial integrity of their families.
