Trinity University Health Care Administration Alumni Association Golf Tournament 2015
By Christian Fletcher ’16
Nearly 60 golfers, made up of students, alumni and friends, had the privilege of playing at The Quarry Golf Club in San Antonio, TX on a brisk and overcast Fall afternoon on Friday, October 9. Each of our participating golfers received a complimentary gift bag, refreshments and a boxed lunch during the registration process prior to a 12:30 shotgun start. At the completion of the tournament, the players were treated to a reception within the Quarry where a light meal was served, during which time various trophies for both team and individual accomplishments were awarded.
This year’s tournament raised nearly $2,000 with the proceeds going to help fund student attendance at the March 2016 Congress on Healthcare Leadership Conference in Chicago and the Paul Golliher Fellowship which is awarded to one outstanding student each school year. This was a substantial accomplishment considering that a heavy majority of the donations and sponsorships were attracted to the Health Care Administration Department’s 50th Year Anniversary Gala which took place the evening before.
In addition to the support from the golfers, this year’s event could not have been possible without the efforts and philanthropic support of our sponsors. The HCAD Alumni Association and Department of Health Care Administration would like to thank the following contributors:
Alliance Healthcare Partners (Reception Sponsor)
Sierra Providence Health Network – El Paso (Lunch Sponsor)
John C. Hyde ’81 (in honor of HCAD Class of 1981)
We thank you for your continued support of the program and are already looking forward to next year’s tournament. Please mark your calendars to join us next year on Friday, October 7, 2016 at The Quarry Golf Club in San Antonio, TX. We encourage you to consider assisting the event as a sponsor.
