The tournament aims to raise $40,000 to fund ambulance portico.
Time is running out to sponsor the 40th Annual Bob West Drive for Marshall Golf Tournament. The event tees off on Friday, June 23, at Cold Springs Golf and Country Club in Placerville.
This year, the Foundation has established an ambitious $40,000 fundraising goal to commemorate the event’s 40th anniversary. Sponsorship opportunities are still available to help the Foundation reach its goal. Choose from levels including a $250 Tee Sponsor, $500 19th Hole Sponsor, $750 Tee Box Sponsor, and higher.
Proceeds from the 2023 tournament will support the construction of an ambulance portico outside the Marshall Medical Center emergency department. The new portico will protect patients, first responders, and clinicians from the elements.
“Patients arrive by ambulance in all kinds of weather, from rain and snow to extreme heat. The new portico will offer shelter from the elements, providing a better experience for patients and those who care for them,” says Mindy Danovaro, Executive Director, Marshall Foundation for Community Health. Total cost to construct the portico is nearly $1 million, adds Danovaro.
Whether you play golf or not, the Bob West Drive for Marshall offers something for everyone. Though the tournament field is full, the Foundation invites the community to attend the dinner at 5 p.m. Limited tickets are still available for $60 each. Dinner guests will enjoy a raffle, live auction, and tournament awards ceremony. Among the auction items are a scenic flight over El Dorado County, sailing and lunch on the San Francisco Bay, Kings tickets in a Golden 1 Center suite, and a weekend stay at the Bob West Lake Tahoe House.
Bob West’s son-in-law, Bob Gillett, has proudly continued the tradition West started 40 years ago, serving as chair of the golf tournament committee for several years.
“As we mark the tournament’s 40th anniversary, I would like to thank all the sponsors and players for this year and in past years who have made this tournament a success,” notes Gillett. “Together, we have raised funds that help Marshall Medical provide the best care for our community. Bob West always said that for a community to prosper, it needs great medical care.”
Along with Gillett, several members of West’s family will participate in this year’s golf tournament to honor West’s contributions to Marshall over the years. In addition to launching the tournament in 1982, West helped found the hospital in the late 1950s and Marshall Foundation for Community Health in 1974. He also helped designed the Cold Springs Golf and Country Club, where the tournament takes place each year. West passed away in 2008.
