All proceeds benefit the expansion of eCare at Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals

BIG RAPIDS — It's time for the community to shine their clubs and head to the green.

The newly formed Spectrum Health Foundation of Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals invites the public to participate in the first Charity Golf Classic on Monday, Aug. 24, at Tullymore Golf Resort in Stanwood.

The foundation has combined the Ford Club of Canadian Lakes Golf Outing, the Wheatlake Charity Golf Outing and the Reed City Hospital Charity Golf Outing into one event.

Sponsored by Lake-Osceola State Bank, 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the expansion of eCare services at Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals. eCare uses technology to bring specialists to patients at both hospitals, helping to avoid transfers and long commutes.

Event check-in begins at 8 a.m. followed by the shotgun start at 9 a.m. Golfers of all skill levels are invited to participate in the four-person scramble. Registration is $150 per player, which includes an 18-hole tournament, motorized cart, continental breakfast, lunch at the turn and a full buffet dinner at the clubhouse. Golfers also will have the opportunity to win a 2015 Silverado All Star Package four-by-four thanks to hole-in-one sponsor Crossroads Chevrolet.

Sponsorships are still available. Visit give.spectrumhealth.org/reed-city/charity-golf-classic to register and view sponsorship packages. For more information, call (231) 592-4280.
