Golf Day 2022

Today’s Activities

This year’s tournament is a celebration of the tremendous spirit that the community has shown to us for over 22 years.  

Our goal for today is for everyone to have an outstanding experience of playing golf on a world class course with friends and colleagues, enjoy some good food and drink together, and visit with our amazing group of Concordia’s supporters and sponsors. Our campaign goal for this tournament is to raise funds for our “Heart of Care” Campaign which will fully renovate OR #5 so that we can work through the surgical backlog for hip and knee joint replacement surgery.
