Annual Golf Tournament Raises Funds to Support Community Health and Wellness Programs

Lanham, Maryland – The Doctors Community Hospital Foundation raised more than $215,000 at its 22nd annual golf invitational held in Queenstown, Maryland on May 22, the most successful fundraising event to date. These funds will support community health and wellness programs for residents of Prince George’s County and surrounding areas.

Donations will support the hospital’s community, clinical, and health education programs including its new Wellness on Wheels mobile health clinic. This healthcare resource travels throughout the area with medical professionals who provide free blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes screenings, and other primary care services. This year, retired Prince George’s County Fire EMS Chief Marc Bashoor served as the honorary chair and the foundation partnered with the Southern Maryland Junior Golf Association to host five young golfers from Prince George’s County high schools. Tournament proceeds also supported this organization, which provides leadership development, important life skills, competitive sports opportunities and scholarships for young people in the county.

Robyn Webb-Williams, vice president of Doctors Community Hospital Foundation, shared her gratefulness for the many hospital employees, business leaders and community members who supported this fundraiser. “A deep spirit of service and giving guides the hospital. During these and other philanthropic initiatives, it is always wonderful to see so many people come together to achieve a shared goal of helping people receive quality health care regardless of their financial constraints.”
