Spectrum Healthcare Partners announced as Title Sponsor

BIDDEFORD, MaineSouthern Maine Health Care (SMHC) is excited to host its 27th annual golf tournament, taking place on Thursday, Sept. 9, at the Dunegrass Golf Club, and Tuesday, Sept. 14, at the Cape Arundel Golf Club. Past tournaments have been so popular that we’ve expanded this year’s event to two days. Participants are invited to attend either day.

Golfers can register in teams of up to four, and are eligible to win prizes including pro shop gift cards and the coveted white lab coats for the top team. There are also contests including the Million Dollar Hole-in-One Shootout, hole-in-one, closest to the pin, longest drive, and a 50/50 raffle.

Businesses are invited to join our Title Sponsor, Spectrum Healthcare Partners, in support of the event with our newly expanded sponsorship package. Proceeds from the tournament will go toward the Da Vinci surgical robot and its use in the Bariatrics Program at SMHC. Community obesity rates have risen 64% over the last decade, reaching a critical level. This contributes to other community health crises, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, along with putting people at a higher risk when fighting COVID-19.

“The pandemic has reminded us how important it is to have high-quality health care in our community,” says Nate Howell, SMHC President. “This tournament is a great way for the community to join us in support of SMHC - our local community hospital - with a fun day out on the course.”

To register, visit smhc.org/golf. For questions about Sponsorship please contact Suzanne Gagnon, Coordinator of Community Relations, at 207-283-7234 or slgagnon@smhc.org.
