Concord Hospital Trust Golf Tournament Raises $118,000 for Concord Hospital Trust’s Scholarship Fund

On Monday, August 12, 2019, 140 players took part in Concord Hospital Trust’s 30th annual Challenge Scramble Golf Tournament at Concord Country Club raising $118,000.

Funds raised from the event will support Concord Hospital Trust’s Scholarship Fund. The Fund was established with a number of scholarships originally established to support Concord Hospital School of Nursing, which closed in 1989. Combined with more recently established scholarships and other donations, it awards thousands of dollars each year to students of nursing and allied health fields such as social work, physical therapy and nutrition.

Today, a volunteer committee comprised of medical professionals, Concord Hospital employees and community members oversee all aspects of the scholarship fund. In 2018, the Scholarship Fund provided $37,725 in educational support to 21 students.

Major sponsors of the tournament included: Host Sponsor-Daymark; Major Sponsors: Lifeline Ambulance Service; Norgate; The Prescription Center; AVAYA and Integration Partners; Claflin; Davis & Towle Insurance Group; and DePuy/Synthes.

Helping out at the fundraiser were approximately 40 Concord Hospital employees and community volunteers.
