Princeton HealthCare System’s (PHCS) 21st Annual Golf Outing, held in June at Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson, NJ, raised more than $260,000 to benefit the Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center at the University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP).
The Scheide Fund, a Princeton-based philanthropic organization, was the title sponsor of the event, which drew 180 participants.
Other top sponsors included Conner Strong & Buckelew; Edward E. Matthews, Chairman Emeritus of the Princeton HealthCare System Board of Trustees; Wells Fargo Bank; Princeton Anesthesia Services; and SEI Investments. In total, 74 companies and individuals who do business or live in the region supported the event.
Proceeds will benefit the Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center, PHCS’s primary and specialty care clinic that annually serves approximately 8,000 uninsured and underinsured patients of all ages. These funds will support complex care coordination and enhanced services for high-risk patients with multiple chronic medical conditions, as well as support services for adults and children who otherwise could not afford them.
“The members of the golf outing committee embraced the opportunity to raise money in support of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center. The funds raised will help PHCS meet the growing need for services for the most vulnerable members of our community,” said event Co-chairs, Glenn Mekles of Conner Strong & Buckelew, a Metedeconk sponsoring member; and James Demetriades, Vice President, PHCS.
The PHCS Foundation thanks everyone who supported this important fundraising event, especially Honorary Co-chair J. Thomas Davidson, MD, UMCP Department of Surgery, and all of the members of the 2016 Golf Outing Committee.
