Sponsorships are available for the 40th Annual HK's Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament, scheduled June 1–3 at The Cove Golf Course at The Lodge of Four Seasons.
"HK's is one of the lake's favorite traditions, and we are grateful for the generous sponsors who have made this event a success," said Terri Hall, Lake Regional director of Fund Development. "Their giving improves the health of our community."
HK's sponsors receive extensive exposure during the three-day event. More than 200 participants will attend the Meet the Chiefs Live and Silent Auction on Saturday evening, and the Sunday golf tournament fills two flights with golfers
There are more than a dozen sponsorship packages available, from a comprehensive Gold Sponsorship package with VIP benefits and recognition throughout the weekend to hole sponsorships that come with two tickets to the Meet the Chiefs event and tee box signage.
"Every sponsor level has its own special benefits," Hall said. "Several of these opportunities are for one sponsor only, and we award sponsorships on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage individuals and businesses to contact us as early as possible."
The Kansas City Chiefs Ambassadors will serve as honorary chairs of the 40th Annual HK's Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament. The HK's activities will kick off at the VIP/Celebrity Party on the Roof, scheduled 7 p.m. Friday, June 1, on the Rooftop Patio and Valencia Room at The Lodge of Four Seasons. This party, which is open to the public, provides a great opportunity to talk with many Chiefs and Chiefs Ambassadors and other sports celebrities. The evening also will feature a buffet barbecue dinner and fireworks. Sponsors who contribute $1,000 or more receive complimentary tickets. For others, tickets are $50 and must be purchased in advance.
On Saturday, June 2, the Meet the Chiefs Live and Silent Auction will take place in Campana Hall at The Lodge of Four Seasons. Items up for bid include jewelry, golf packages, vacations, sports memorabilia and more. All sponsors and supporters donating auction items with a retail value of at least $100 receive complimentary tickets. For the general public, tickets are $25 and available at the door.
The golf tournament will be held Sunday, June 3, at The Cove Golf Course. The tournament will feature several closest-to-the-hole and hole-in-one prizes, as well as two putting contests. Flights are scheduled in the morning and afternoon. Registration is $295 per golfer and includes a $100 Callaway gift card; on-course refreshments; two tickets to Saturday evening's Meet the Chiefs Live and Silent Auction; and more.
All proceeds from the 2018 tournament will benefit Lake Regional Cardiopulmonary Rehab, which cares for more than 3,000 patients annually. The department will purchase a new heart monitoring system that will enable it to accept twice as many new patients into the program. Plus, the new system monitors oxygen levels more comfortably and consistently during exercise, and it includes hand-held technology, so nurses will be able to monitor their patients while standing next to them. Currently, nurses must monitor patients from a central station. Learn more at www.lakeregional.com/heartcare.
