Genesys hosts annual Charity Classic party

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys Health Foundation will host the 18th annual Charity Classic party, Saturday, July 24 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc.
Funds raised at this event will go toward the expansion of the Genesys Special Care Nursery to a Level IIB, which will give Genesys 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.

"Infant morbidity and mortality rates in Genesee County are among the highest in the nation," reports Nick Evans, vice president and chief development officer for the Genesys Health Foundation. "As birth rates continue to rise in our community, this translates into escalating high-risk pregnancies, deliveries and a growing demand for services to help this population. A Level IIB Nursery is desperately needed," he points out.

Cost for the Charity Classic party is $125 a person, and includes cocktails; a sumptuous meal from the culinary specialists at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club; a silent auction with sports memorabilia, golf and resort packages, fine jewelry and other specialty items; musical entertainment and dancing to "The Groove Party;" and - weather permitting - outdoor golf challenges.

To purchase tickets for the Genesys Charity Classic party, call the Genesys Health Foundation at 810-606-6387, or go to www.genesyshealthfoundation.org.

Genesys also is sponsoring a raffle for a first place prize of $20,000. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold at a cost of $100 each. Second place is $2,500 and third place is $1,000. Call 810-606-6387 to purchase a ticket.

In addition to the Classic party, Genesys Health Foundation will host a golf tournament Monday, July 19 at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club. Cost is $750 a person and includes 18 holes of golf, two tickets to the Charity Classic party, a gift package, continental breakfast and lunch (for morning golfers); and hors d'oeuvres for afternoon golfers. Golfers can choose morning or afternoon tee times.

In 1993, Genesys announced its first Charity Classic, a fundraising event where business and community leaders worked in partnership with Genesys to support its efforts to build a healthier future for area residents. Year after year, Genesys has continued this tradition of designating proceeds from the Charity Classic to improve the health of the community. To date, more than $1.9 million has been raised. These funds have been used to help the uninsured and underinsured obtain access to quality medical care and health care resources, offer scholarships to area residents interested in pursuing a career in health care, develop a parish nurse ministry program, and provide other needed services for the community.
