Benefiting University of Iowa Children’s Hospital, the UI Children’s Hospital Open committee is proud to announce that the 2013 open raised $63,800, a record number! Over four years, more than $153,000 has been donated to the UI Children’s Hospital thanks to this event.
The Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) was pleased to partner with RTL Equipment, PODS, and Touchless Car Washes to bring you one of the more exciting charitable golf scramble and PRO-AM tournaments in the Iowa Section of the PGA, which took place May 30-31.
The tournament came about in 2010 when former Hawkeye and now retired placekicker for the San Diego Chargers, Nate Kaeding, and the CVB wanted to transform the Nate Kaeding Golf Tournament into an even bigger and more successful event. We were grateful to have Nate & Sam Kaeding and Kirk & Mary Ferentz as tournament hosts.
In continued support, proceeds from the the fourth annual University of Iowa Children’s Hospital Open & Kick-Off Scramble will help fund the construction of the new University of Iowa Children’s Hospital, set for completion in March 2016. This new facility will consolidate the pediatric medical services currently spread throughout the hospital complex, and will be a special healing environment for children and their families. As the hub of a system of care for the entire state, current programs will be expanded and new services offered at the hospital and throughout Iowa to meet the current and future needs of Iowa’s children. More information is available on the UI Children’s Hospital building website.
