Charity golf tournament offers opportunity to play two great Branson courses
Branson’s Skaggs Classic charity golf tournament will return June 9-10 this year with the incredible opportunity for golfers to enjoy not just one beautiful Branson course, but two.
“Branson has so many wonderful courses and we decided this year to give our sponsors the opportunity to try a couple of the courses during one fun-filled weekend,” says Skaggs Foundation President Meghan Connell. “We will kick things off on Friday, June 9, with a 1 p.m. shotgun start at Thousand Hills Golf Resort. That main day of play includes free lunch, snacks and beverages for all of our players as well as appetizers, a silent auction and an awards ceremony. On Saturday, June 10, our sponsors of $5,000 or more will be treated to a second day of play, this time at Branson Hills Golf Club.”
Sponsorship opportunities begin at $500 with team sponsorships starting at $1,000. All proceeds raised during Branson’s Skaggs Classic will help support Skaggs Foundation.
“Every year, millions of visitors come to the Ozarks to enjoy our lakes, shows and attractions, but at Skaggs Foundation, we recognize that our greatest resources are the people of our community,” Connell says. “Our mission is to protect that resource by supporting community initiatives dedicated to improving health and wellness throughout Taney and Stone counties.”
Here are just a few of the ways Skaggs Foundation is improving health and wellness:
- Jan Harper Cardiac Rehab Fund provides financial assistance to patients who have suffered a cardiac event, such as a heart attack, but are unable to afford recommended rehabilitation services as part of their recovery process.
- Feel Better Baby is a program designed to equip, educate and empower parents and caregivers of children 0-3 years old to treat common childhood ailments at home and know when and where to seek medical treatment when needed. This program provides 1,000 kits – kits that include a digital thermometer, pain reliever, saline drops, bulb syringe and easy-to-read information – for families in our community.
- Since inception in 2002, Skaggs Foundation has awarded more than $280,000 in scholarships to local students pursuing careers in the medical industry. At Skaggs Foundation, we believe there is no better way to ensure the health care industry in our area has a bright future than by supporting education today.
- Skaggs Legacy Endowment is a restricted endowment fund made possible by a generous gift from CoxHealth in 2013. The foundation awards grants annually to local agencies dedicated to improving health and wellness in Taney and Stone counties. More than 85,000 lives are expected to be impacted by current Skaggs Legacy Endowment grants.
