Southeastern Regional Medical Center Foundation hosts the Annual Swing for Good Health Golf Tournament each May. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy an exciting day on the greens while supporting the needs of the community. The day isn’t just about golf, though. Southeastern Regional Medical Center Foundation uses the proceeds raised from the tournament to support the Academic Scholarship Endowment Program. The Academic Scholarship Endowment Program provides financial assistance to students in Robeson and surrounding counties who wish to pursue careers in the medical, nursing and allied health care professions.
The 2012 tournament is scheduled for Thursday, May 3 at Pinecrest Country Club! Be sure to get your application in today!

THE 2011 SWING FOR GOOD HEALTH GOLF TOURNAMENT RAISES $18,000
The 116 golfers who played in Southeastern Regional Medical Center Foundation’s annual tournament will make it possible for local students to train for careers in health care. Twenty-nine teams competed in the 21th annual Swing for Good Health golf tournament held May 5 at Pinecrest Country Club. The tournament was chaired by Claude Fulghum.
The event raised $18,000 for the SRMC Foundation, according to Foundation Director Sissy Grantham. Proceeds from the tournament will help fund academic scholarships for students who have chosen to study medicine, nursing or allied health and who plan to return to this community to practice.
