The Annual HK’s Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament — traditionally held the first weekend in June — was established by Harold Koplar, founder of The Lodge of Four Seasons. Throughout its history, it has earned in excess of $3 million for Lake Regional medical departments and the purchase of new medical equipment. This year, all proceeds will benefit Lake Regional Outpatient Services. This busy department, which includes ambulatory surgery, receives more than 26,400 visits annually and will be remodeled to enhance patient comfort and privacy and to accommodate the growing number of individuals seeking outpatient services.
“Thanks to the community for supporting this important event again this year,” said Terri Hall, Lake Regional director of Fund Development. “We could not be successful without our generous sponsors, donors, golfers and volunteers.”
Hall also thanked the event co-chairs Susan Brown, Cecilia Thomson and Walter White; Honorary Chair Deron Cherry; and the Kansas City Chiefs Ambassadors.
