Save the date for the upcoming Good Samaritan Charity Golf Tournament
The annual Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center Charity Golf Tournament is coming to the Big Canoe Golf Course on Apr. 19.
This year the tournament is dedicated in memory of Big Canoe’s Ed Delaney who lost his battle with cancer in January 2016. Ed was not only a valued Good Samaritan board member and active volunteer but was instrumental in making the tournament what it is today, the biggest fundraising event of the year for Good Samaritan. This year’s goal is to raise $30,000.
The mission of the Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center is to provide the medically underserved in our community with compassionate and individualized health care and related services in an atmosphere of respect and dignity.
In 2015, Good Samaritan experienced more than 9,344 patient visits and added 457 new patients.
Good Samaritan is a 501(3)(c) not-for-profit health center that provides health services to residents and workers in Pickens, Gordon and Dawson counties.
