Friday, August 10, 2018
PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Nearly 300 golfers raised a record-breaking $427,270 at the 5th annual Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Golf Classic last week.
The AHN Golf Classic was held at two of the Pittsburgh region’s most prestigious golf clubs, Allegheny Country Club and Sewickley Heights Golf Club. Presenting sponsors of the event were PNC, McKamish, Jefferson Regional Foundation, and Honeywell.
Proceeds from the AHN Golf Classic support various programs, services, and needs throughout AHN community hospitals.
In prior years, donations helped launch new outpatient transportation services for patients in need of assistance getting to and from appointments, establish a new lactation room and provide financial support for lactation consultant training for new mothers, and create the Living Life Program, a post-cancer wellness and treatment program. Donations also supported the Senior Services Program which links seniors to hundreds of services that help them live healthier lives, as well as the Community Stroke Outreach Program, which has screened more than 8,000 people in our community and promotes early detection education.
“AHN is leading the way in providing the latest, most comprehensive, and affordable health care possible, and keeping care in the communities of our patients,” said Allie Quick, chief philanthropy officer, AHN. “We are grateful to those individual, community and corporate partners whose outstanding generosity directly impacts the programs and services provided to our patients. We are excited to celebrate a fundraising record for our 5th Annual AHN Golf Classic and, most importantly, we thank all those who came out to support our mission of improving health and promoting wellness in our communities, one person at a time.”
