The 11th Annual EJGH Foundation Golf Classic presented by EJ After Hours Urgent Care and first-ever Pre-Party a huge success!

On Monday, May 13, East Jefferson General Hospital physicians, staff, donors, board members, local business leaders and friends of EJGH participated in the 11th Annual EJGH Foundation Golf Classic presented by EJ After Hours Urgent Care, held for the first time at Metairie Country Club. This was the most successful tournament in its history.

"This year's tournament is a major step forward in the evolution of the Annual Golf Classic," says Marc Eagan, Annual Golf Classic Chair. "It has become, without a doubt, one of the premier events in our region. Our goal is to make this a world-class event, so that in the end, we can help advance the delivery of patient care at our community hospital. We are excited that the $95,000 raised will further support Expert Medicine, Extraordinary Care at EJGH."

The Foundation would like to thank first-time presenting sponsor EJ After Hours Urgent Care and Platinum Sponsors Cerner and Humana for making this year's tournament a success. Golfers were able to enjoy a friendly day of competition and rounded out the day's festivities with an awards ceremony, cocktail reception and live auction. The highlight of the auction was a trip to Pinehurst, NC to compete in the National BMW Golf Cup.

Three days before the Golf Classic, the first annual kick-off Pre-Party was held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Gerry Cvitanovich. That event featured a silent auction, cocktails and entertainment. Pre-party sponsors included LaPorte CPA's and Business Advisors, Iberia Bank, Drago's Seafood Restaurant, Southern Eagle and Breaux Mart.

Over the past 10 years, contributions from The Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital Annual Golf Classic have provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in philanthropic support for the delivery of the highest quality, compassionate healthcare in our community and provided funding for specialized patient care, advanced technology, services and capital expansion projects.
