More than 150 golfers participated in this year's Golf Outing, which was held June 14 at Metedeconk National Golf Club, a world-class course in Jackson, N.J

The annual event is organized by the Princeton HealthCare System Foundation. Since 2007, the Foundation has earmarked the funds to benefit Design for Healing, the campaign to support the new hospital in Plainsboro.

"This event gets bigger and better for us every year," said Joseph Stampe, Vice President of Development for Princeton HealthCare System. "We've raised $550,000 in the five years that we've dedicated the funds to the new hospital, and each year we surpass the previous year's record for net fundraising."

The lead sponsors of this year's outing were Conner Strong, an insurance, risk management, and employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm, and SEI Investments Co. This year's "steel sponsors" were Turner Construction Co. and the Scheide Fund, a private foundation that helps finance charitable projects to benefit residents of Princeton and the surrounding areas.

Design for Healing has raised about $130 million - nearly 90 percent of the way toward its goal of $150 million - to support UMCPP, which will open in May 2012 as a replacement hospital for the current University Medical Center at Princeton.
