Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Famer, Clyde Simmons, Helps Local Hospital Raise Funds for Community Health

Lanham, MD –Doctors Community Hospital Foundation will host its 24th annual fundraising golf tournament on Monday, May 20, 2019, at Queenstown Harbor in Maryland. This event raises funds to help uninsured and underinsured residents of Prince George’s County and surrounding areas access needed health and wellness services.  Dominic Magnolia, vice president of Magnolia Companies, is this year’s chairperson.  Also, former Philadelphia Eagles football player and hall of famer, Clyde Simmons, is a participating supporter.

“Giving back to the community has always been a priority in my life,” Simmons stated.  “I am honored to be a part of an organization dedicated to providing healthcare services to residents in need.” 

Last year’s golf tournament raised more than $228,782 in support of various community health initiatives.  This year’s event will help raise funds for the hospital’s Center for Comprehensive Breast Care, diabetes screening and education programs, Cardiac Rehabilitation scholarship program and Wellness on Wheels mobile health clinic. This healthcare resource travels throughout the area providing free screenings (e.g., blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes) and medication education.

“Elevating access to reliable medical services requires the collaboration of individuals, businesses and community organizations – all working together to realize a common goal.  I am delighted that Mr. Simmons, Mr. Magnolia, donors and volunteers are supporting our philanthropic golf tournament,” stated Robyn Webb-Williams, vice president of Doctors Community Hospital Foundation.  “With their help, more people throughout the area will get the care they need and deserve.”
