Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN) held its 27th annual Jack Mason Memorial Golf Tournament on September 14 at Ellington Ridge Country Club. Over 120 golfers attended this event in support of Rockville General Hospital. More than $55,000 was raised. On Friday, October 23, at 1 p.m. at Rockville General Hospital, the Jack Mason Golf Tournament Committee will present the $55,000 check to Peter Karl, President and CEO of ECHN.
This tournament was started by good friends of Jack Mason one year after his death. He was a resident of Rockville, a Rockville business owner and was closely and enthusiastically involved with Rockville General Hospital for many years. Over the 27 years since this tournament's inception, more than $1 million has been raised.
This tournament was made possible through the generosity of a number of corporate and individual sponsors, including Connecticut Investment Management, the tournament's presenting sponsor for the 12th consecutive year. ECHN appreciates William Gallagher Associates for its additional support. Gold Sponsors included Ambulance Service of Manchester, IKON, and Robinson & Cole. Corporate Sponsors were Aetna, Americom Inc., Griffin York & Krause, and SSIMed. Lunch Sponsor was Allscripts, and Registration Table Sponsors were Milford Anesthesia Associates, P.C., Rockville Bank Foundation, Standard Builders, and Visiting Nurse & Health Services of Connecticut.
Special thanks to all individuals and organizations who also supported this event through the donation of auction items and additional financial support. Proceeds for the 2009 tournament will have an immediate effect on the hospital's ability to continue to sustain quality healthcare to our community.
ECHN holds many annual events throughout the year and partners with corporations for maximum marketing opportunities. For information on how to be a part of future ECHN Community Healthcare Foundation events, please call 860.647.4750.
