Since its inception in 1988, the classic has become Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation’s premier fundraising event raising over $1.2 million dollars for Kaweah Delta Health Care District. The foundation, led by a volunteer board of 49 individuals, was formed in 1979 to cultivate community philanthropy and support projects that facilitate the development of a safe, vibrant and healthy community.
Realizing that quality health care was essential to Visalia’s growing community, Tommy Elliott joined the Hospital Foundation Board in 1987. In recognition of Tommy’s outstanding support of the Golf Classic, it was renamed in his honor in 2004.
Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation was created in 1979 to help Kaweah Delta Health Care District achieve excellence in patient care through fundraising from the hospital family and the community. Since that time, the nonprofit 501(c) (3) Foundation, with its elected board of directors, has raised nearly $50 million in support of Kaweah Delta. The foundation raises funds through personal solicitation, grants, special events, direct mail, and social media appeals as well as through future, planned gifts such as bequests.
