• UM Shore Regional Health Golf Tournament Set for August 30, 2021

    Bob Rauch, Brad Baker, Art Cecil and Bill Houck represented the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton in 2019. This year the Auxiliary will once again be "The Open" sponsor for the Tournament, with ladies’ and men's teams for a day of fun and fellowship while supporting UM Shore Medical Center at Easton.

    Easton, MD (June 28, 2021) – University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation has scheduled its annual Golf Tournament fundraiser for Monday, August 30, 2021 at Talbot Country Club in Easton.
    The UM Shore Regional Health Golf Tournament is one of the premier golfing events in the area, with lunch on the course followed by an awards reception. Organizers plan to host 30 teams, with the goal of raising $80,000 for equipment needs for the Primary Stroke Center located in UM Shore Medical Center at Easton.
    The Primary Stroke Center designation is awarded by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems when standards are met to support better outcomes for stroke care. UM SMC at Easton has protocols in place to quickly assess and treat patients who arrive with signs or symptoms of a stroke. This includes notification by EMS providers prior to their arrival at the hospital.
    Over the last six years, UM SMC at Easton has received support from the Golf Tournament benefiting the Requard Acute Care Rehabilitation Center, the Birthing Center, Cardiac Services, Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Surgical Services, and also supporting the purchase of invasive and non-invasive ventilators.
    "Tournament sponsors are important to the success of the event because they enable local organizations to help purchase needed equipment for the Primary Stroke Center," said F. Graham Lee, vice president, Philanthropy for UM SRH. “For those who can’t participate in the tournament, sponsorships at the $500, $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000 levels provide an opportunity to invest in the health of our community.”
    To date, sponsor organizations for this year's tournament include Shore Bancshares, Bluepoint Hospitality Group, Choptank Transport, Tri Gas & Oil, Provident State Bank, Tidewater Anesthesia Associates, Bullock Construction, Queenstown Bank, the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton, WIN Transport, The Meoli Companies/ McDonald’s and Willow Construction.
    The UM Shore Regional Health Golf Tournament will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a single tee start. Lunch, snacks and beverages will be served on the course. Following the tournament, there will be a reception and awards ceremony along with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Team registration is $1,500 and limited to 30 teams.
