Annual Golf Tournament Tops Fundraising Goals to Continue Funding Community Health and Wellness Programs

Lanham, Maryland – The Doctors Community Hospital Foundation raised more than $228,782 at its 23rd annual golf invitational held on May 21 in Queenstown, Maryland – exceeding the amount raised last year.  These funds will support community health, wellness and enrichment programs for Prince George’s County residents.

Doctors Community Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit 509(a)(3) organization with a commitment to contribute to the strengthening of the community.  Funds from the golf invitational will support healthcare-related educational and clinical services.  One example is the Wellness on Wheels mobile health clinic that travels throughout the area and provides free screenings (blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes), medication education and some primary care services.

William Steen, director of public relations and marketing at Carrollton Enterprises and golf invitational chair, views the mobile clinic as an important community resource. “Reliable and accessible health care is a vital component to every thriving community.  Doctors Community Hospital’s Wellness on Wheels program helps to provide that type of care to people – no matter where they live in the county and regardless of their ability to pay.  That certainly lives up to the hospital’s mission of ‘passionately caring.’”

For the second year, the Foundation also partnered with the Southern Maryland Junior Golf Association and hosted four golfers who attend Prince George’s County high schools. A portion of the funds raised during the invitational will also help support this organization, which provides leadership development, life skills improvement, competitive sports opportunities and scholarships for young county residents. 

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. “Our 23rd annual invitational has been our best year ever. This success is a testament to people understanding the importance of the work that we do at Doctors Community Hospital and our longstanding commitment to serving our wonderful community.”
