-A +A
Sutter Roseville Medical Center Foundation is holding its 23rd annual benefit golf tournament, the two-day Scottish Scramble. On the evening of Thursday, Sept. 10, the general public, along with players and sponsors, are invited to attend a tournament party. Activities include food and drink, entertainment, auction and raffle opportunities, and special recognition for all the sponsors. On Friday, Sept. 11, a golf tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Both events will be held at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville. Sponsored by Twin Trees Land Company, the proceeds will benefit the Sutter Rehabilitation Institute. The Sutter Rehabilitation Institute cares for patients recovering from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, stroke, orthopedic conditions and degenerative neurological conditions to help productive lives after they are discharged. This freestanding rehabilitation center houses dedicated brain injury and spinal cord injury units, an inpatient gym, an outdoor therapeutic area, inpatient dining room and recreation lounge, and family education center. The rehabilitation institute is an independent living apartment within the facility, where the patient’s family is able to practice caring for their loved one to help ease the transition to home. Sutter Rehabilitation Institute’s services are targeted to patients who require 24-hour rehabilitation care and who are able to tolerate an intensive therapy program of at least three hours a day. The tournament costs $250 per player and includes the tournament party on Thursday, Sept. 10, at 6 p.m., plus green fees, $50 to spend in the Titleist store, lunch and dinner on Friday. Individual tickets for the tournament party are $75. For more information call 781-1234 or visit philanthropy. ~ Staff report
