Genesys Charity Classic raises funds for robotic surgery

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) The 21st annual Genesys Charity Classic promises to be the "party of the summer" with great food, fun and friends!
The Classic party will take place Saturday, July 20 from 6 pm to 11 pm at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc. The great food portion of the evening Includes cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and the finest culinary specialties from Chef Larry Werner, which include: a carving station, a grill station, a southwest fare station, a pasta station and dessert served on the patio.

A silent auction features sports memorabilia, framed artwork, gift certificates, and dozens of spectacular items. Musical entertainment, dancing and golf challenges round out an evening to enjoy with friends.

"The Charity Classic is a fantastic opportunity for the community to join together for some great food and fun - all to improve the quality of care for our patients," reports Nick Evans, Genesys vice president of Business Development and chief development officer.

"Since its inception, the Genesys Charity Classic event has raised nearly $2 million, thanks to the generosity of our community."

Charity Classic proceeds initially were used for Healthy Students 2000, a 10-year, $1 million commitment to improve the health of Genesee County students through health education and immunization awareness programs.

Funds also were raised to establish an ongoing scholarship program for areas students entering health care undergraduate and graduate programs.

The most recent Charity Classic endeavor was to raise funds for a Level II B Special Care Nursery, which provides Genesys with the capabilities to care for higher risk babies - those born at more than 32 weeks gestation and weighing more than 1500 grams, those needing mechanical ventilation, and those needing continuous positive airway pressure.

For the next three years, proceeds from the Charity Classic will be earmarked for robotic surgery technology.

As part of the Charity Classic fundraising event, Genesys will sponsor a raffle with a chance to win your choice of three grand prizes:

2013 Harley Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle

2011 (new) Arctic Cat Prowler

$10,000 cash

Second prize: $2,500

Third prize: $1,000

Tickets are $100 each and only 1,000 will be sold. Drawing will take place at the Classic party. You do not have to attend the Charity Classic events to be eligible to win.
