(3/22/12) - The 2012 Loris Seacoast Health Foundation Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, April 28 at Black Bear Golf Club on Highway 9, and will benefit the Sylvia Kitchen Memorial Nursing Scholarship Program at McLeod Loris Seacoast. The tournament pays tribute to Sylvia Kitchen who served as director of nursing for many years. After years of dedicating her life to helping others and encouraging young adults to pursue the profession of nursing, Sylvia and her family established the scholarship fund prior to Sylvia losing her battle with cancer.
Individual golfers and foursomes can register for the golf tournament for $75 per person or $300 for a four-person team. The fee includes greens and cart fees, golf favors, lunch, drinks and snacks on the course and entry for door prizes. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the tournament begins at 9:00 with a shotgun start.
Over the years, the Sylvia Kitchen Memorial Nursing Scholarship Program has helped raise funds to support scholarships for local youth interested in pursuing a career in nursing. A number of past recipients have completed their education and are following their dream of a career in healthcare right here in this community.
