Provided by OCCC Foundation
The 9th Annual Healthy FORE Life Golf Tournament for the Oregon Coast Community College Foundation will be held at Salishan Golf Links on Friday, May 10 with a 1:00 p.m. shotgun start.
The tournament Title Sponsor is Samaritan Health Services. The tournament is the Foundation’s main benefit for the OCCC nursing program, now in its sixth year, with 17 students expected to graduate in June. Counting this year’s soon to graduate students, a total of 108 students will have graduated with an Associate Degree in Nursing, allowing them to take the state licensing exam leading to their chosen field as a Registered Nurse. The majority of past students are now working as Registered Nurses in Lincoln County, with most employed through the Samaritan Health system.
Toni Ritz, a first year nursing student and the student coordinator for the tournament said, “I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember. I want a career where I am making a difference in people’s lives every day, something that actually matters. When someone is sick or hurt they are very vulnerable, they are giving themselves over to strangers to help heal them and whatever the outcome they will probably remember it for the rest of their lives.” She continued, “I want to be the person they will always remember as being the nurse who treated them with respect, compassion and kindness.”
Early bird registration is until April 30 for the special price of $99; the fee increases to $109 on May1. To register go directly to the golf website at www.oregoncoastcc.org/golf-tournament.
Registration includes a sack lunch, snacks, golf cart, a goodie bag and the chance to play and win a crystal golf ball team trophy, plus enjoy a great day of play at Salishan Golf Links while supporting OCCC student nurses.
