Blue Springs, Missouri- The St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation is hosting the First Annual Paul Splittorff Memorial Golf Classic (formerly the St. Mary’s Medical Center Golf Classic) at the Adams Pointe Golf Club on Monday, June 18th. One of the premiere golf tournaments in eastern Jackson County, the tournament enjoys a long tradition of support from businesses and individuals committed to quality health care in their community.
The tournament has been renamed to honor the late Paul Splittorff, a faithful supporter of St. Mary’s for many years and famous Kansas City Royals pitcher. Paul’s daughter Jennifer Splittorff has followed in her father’s footsteps as a member of the foundation board and as a co-chair of the tournament.
“My mother and I are honored to have my father’s legacy remembered with a sporting event that supports the health and well-being of the community he loved,” shares Jennifer. “His spirit of philanthropy lives on in this annual tournament.”
The tournament with morning and afternoon flights begins with a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in a scramble format for a wide array of prizes. Breakfast provided by McCamm Management starts at 6:30 a.m. Lunch, catered by Carrabba’s, begins at noon.
Proceeds from the 2012 Paul Splittorff Memorial Golf Classic will help purchase critical medical equipment that will advance the medical center’s cardiology, women’s services, rehabilitation and stroke, surgery, emergency and orthopedic programs. Corporate sponsorships start at $1,500. Course Contributors are Haldex and the Kansas City Royals. Individual players are $175.
