The Foundation will host its 12th Annual Golf Classic, presented by MHM Urgent Care, on May 12, 2014 at Metairie Country Club. Chaired by Marc Eagan, this event was started over a decade ago by volunteers who wanted to make a difference in the lives of our patients and our community. Today, it stands as one of the premier golf tournaments in our region.

The festivities will kick off a few days before the actual tournament with the 2nd Annual Pre-Party on May 8, 2014. Chaired by Amy Uddo, the Pre-Party will be held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Gerry Cvitanovich and will feature a silent auction, entertainment and catering by Drago’s. Tickets are $125.00 and may be purchased through the Foundation.

The community's continued support of these events help make it possible for the Foundation to support EJGH in their mission of delivering the highest quality, compassionate healthcare to our community. The Foundation provides this support by providing funding for specialized patient care, advanced technology, services and capital expansion projects.

Donna Swartzfager Memorial Fund

donnaphotoOn February 5, The 4th Annual Donna Swartzfager Memorial Fund Awards were announced. The Donna Swartzfager Fund provides financial awards to EJGH team members seeking higher education, professional development growth and certifications. This semi-endowed fund is a donor directed fund that is managed through the investments and Investment Committee of The Foundation.

The fund was created in 2010 after the sudden passing of then Medical Staff Director Donna Swartzfager from heart disease. Medical staff leadership and Donna’s family – husband Ken, siblings Ronnie Zarba and Carol McDaniel and children Kelly and Kyle -created and oversee the disbursements of the fund, which serves as a living memorial to honor the service, dedication and guidance Donna provided to the medical staff and team members during her long tenure at EJGH.
