Classic Event Raises Funding

Luck was with NorthBay Healthcare on Friday, July 13th, as more than 150 golfers, volunteers and staff assembled for a lovely day of golf and fundraising at the NorthBay Guild’s 35th annual Golf Classic tournament. In fact, the day was blessed with balmy weather and a gorgeous course nestled among Napa vineyards. Friendly Guild and NorthBay volunteers invited golfers to join in on fun and amusing activities at many of the holes.

The golfers traveled to Eagle Vines Golf Club for the 2018 tournament. They were greeted by volunteers wearing black cat t-shirts, in a nod to the Friday the 13th date, and invited to sample breakfast burritos, Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s at a putting contest before the shotgun start sent them on their way around the course.

“Funds raised at this year’s tournament will allow NorthBay Healthcare to purchase medical equipment supporting our mission of advanced medicine,” noted Jane Hilliard, director of Volunteer Services. “We’re very grateful for the support that helps us continue to make a difference for our patients and our community.”

When all was tallied, more than $31,000 was raised.

“We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Friday the 13th,” Hilliard added. “Thank you to our sponsors, our donors, and our NorthBay family who volunteered to make it perfect. Mark your calendars for July 12, 2019; we’re ready to do it again!”
