The Valley Classic Tees Off for 33rd Annual Golf Tournament
The Valley Classic, Miami Valley Hospital Foundation’s annual golf tournament in support of patient programs at Miami Valley Hospital, will tee off July 25, 2022, at NCR Country Club in Kettering.
The Valley Classic is one of the area’s longest running and most successful charity golf outings. This event has raised more than $4 million to support numerous patient programs and projects at Miami Valley Hospital. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit diabetes patient education through the Bull Family Diabetes Center.
“Educators at the Bull Family Diabetes Center help patients better manage their disease,” said Jenny Lewis, CFRE, system vice president of philanthropy at Premier Health. “This tournament has served our hospital’s patients and their families for more than three decades and would not be possible without the extraordinary support of our sponsors, players, donors, and volunteers who have made this tournament such a huge success.”
The tournament format is a four-player scramble. Brunch is available prior to a shotgun start. Player registration is $375 per player or $1,500 per foursome. The entry fee includes brunch, greens fee, cart, driving range, refreshments on the course, gifts, prizes, a silent auction, and cocktails and dinner for each player and their guest that evening at the golf course.
“This tournament is so special in helping our community and diabetic patients,” said John Bull, chairman of the 2022 Valley Classic Steering Committee. “We encourage men and women, no matter their golf skillset, to join us in raising funds for this wonderful service.”
Gold Level sponsors Cisco and CDW lead nearly 40 sponsors and in-kind donors for this year’s event. Tournament proceeds support the work of the Certified Diabetes Educators who provide education for inpatients and outpatients.
Based at the Bull Family Diabetes Center, the diabetes educators completed 1,148 inpatient visits in 2021. In addition, the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation helps fund outpatient diabetes education for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. Funds raised by The Valley Classic helps sustain these vital educational programs that enhance the lives of diabetic patients throughout our region.
