Greene County Medical Center Foundation annual golf fundraiser supports regional healthcare and annual Bell Tower Festival

Special to the Jefferson Herald

Player and sponsorship registrations are now open for the 11th annual Greene County Medical Center Foundation golf fundraiser. This popular event will again be held during the Bell Tower Festival, Friday, June 9, at the Jefferson Community Golf Course. The four-person best ball tournament begins with a shotgun start at 9 a.m., ending mid-afternoon to allow golfers time to enjoy Bell Tower activities.

“We are excited to again be hosting the fundraiser in conjunction with the Bell Tower Festival. Our continued goal is to bring the communities we serve together for an iconic event, while hosting a fun day of golf for those arriving early for the festival,” said Foundation Director, Nancy Houska. “Over the past 11 years, the golf outing has made a positive impact on the Foundation’s work of supporting healthcare services for all of Greene County and beyond. Players and sponsors are also giving back as a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Jefferson Matters for next year’s festival.”

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available and welcome, regardless of play in the event. Golfers can register as a foursome, or in pairs and individually and the Foundation will find a four-person team for you. More information and registration for play and/or sponsorships can be found online at; by logging on to or by texting GCMCGolf to 4144. Those with questions can contact Houska at 515-386-0108.

Funds raised through the tournament are used to support the mission of the Medical Center of providing quality, compassionate care to every patient and contributing to the well-being of every family in Greene County. Foundation funds are used to incorporate or enhance patient-centered services and programs, equipment, capital projects and healthcare scholarships for local students pursing a medical career.

Over the past year, the Foundation has continued to support the growth of the pain clinic and has aided in the purchase of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and an Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EDG) scope—a long, flexible tube capped with a camera that allows for examination of the esophagus, stomach and upper portion of the small intestine.
