6th Annual Gene Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic was a Great Success!
The 6th Annual Gene Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic, held July 14 and 15, and sponsored by the TFHS Foundation, was a great success--over $190,00 net was raised to support Patient and Family Programs at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center as well as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) research conducted by the Tahoe Institute for Rural Health Research.
Tournament volunteers, comprised of many TFHS employees as well as members of our local community, were essential and provided a major contribution to the success of the event. Whether manning the silent auction, greeting our celebrity guests, selling Superbowl raffle tickets, participating as “Hole-in-One” attendants, or behind-the-scenes help with setup, all shared in this phenomenal achievement. And they even had fun doing it. One volunteer said,“This is such a fun event—I signed up because I wanted to help support our cancer patients and families, but to have such a great time doing it made it even more special! Count me in next year!”
If you are interested in volunteering for this event next year, save the dates of July 13-14, 2014. For information on other volunteer opportunities, contact the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation at (530) 582-6277.
