VISALIA – On Friday, Aug. 2, the Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation
will host its 31st annual Kaweah Delta Golf Classic at the Visalia Country Club.
Proceeds from this year’s tournament, which will begin with a 9 a.m.
shotgun start, will support the Foundation’s “Mind Over Matter”
campaign. Proceeds of this campaign will help fund the Brain Lab system,
which will help provide life-saving technology for neurosurgery patients
and patients in need of cancer treatment at Sequoia Regional Cancer Center.
Throughout its life, the golf classic has helped Kaweah Delta fund the
Sequoia Regional Cancer Center, the Acequia Wing, the da Vinci Surgical
Robot, the Helipad, the refurbishment of the Labor & Delivery Department,
and many other capital projects across the District.
The golf classic is presented by the Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation and
the following major tournament sponsors: the Foundation for Medical Care
of Tulare & Kings Counties, Inc. and Key Medical Group. Since its
inception in 1988, the classic has become the Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation’s
premier fundraising event, raising more than $1.6 million for Kaweah Delta
projects. The Foundation, led by a volunteer Board, was formed in 1979
to cultivate community philanthropy and support projects that facilitate
the development of a safe, vibrant and healthy community.
