Coronado Hospital Foundation, a nonprofit organization, hosted its ninth annual golf tournament at the beautiful Coronado Municipal Golf Course in support of Sharp Coronado Hospital on Sept. 12. The event, co-chaired by Carol Sommer and Chris Walker exceeded its fundraising goal of $150,000 and raised a net revenue of $165,000.

The tournament included a shotgun start, 18-hole, four player scramble format, a barbecue lunch, an awards ceremony and a buffet dinner. The weather was perfect - 36 teams teed off under sunny skies. “I don’t think it could have gone better this year. The golf committee exceeded its goal, golfers had a great time, and the Foundation team, golf committee and volunteers were all amazing,” beamed Sommer.

Tournament activities included a putting contest sponsored by Chandler Asset Management, a hot shot ball launcher, complimentary ice cream by MooTime Creamery, healthy snacks and fresh fruit donated by Sodexo, decadent sliders by Dinners by David, smoothies by Island Oasis and water by the Morabito Group Real Estate. Complimentary chair massages were offered by George Montes, massage therapist. Haley Stead, Board Certified Music Therapist, provided entertainment during the awards dinner and silent auction.

Carol expressed appreciation to all sponsors and golfers and recognized the Sharp Coronado Hospital Medical Staff for their generous pledge of $150,000 in support of the golf tournament. “As a leader at Sharp HealthCare, their generosity reminds us of the incredible dedication of our physicians. Sharp Coronado Hospital touches the lives not only of the Coronado community but of the entire county through our services including emergency, orthopedics, outpatient and women’s services,” said Walker.
