The Foundation of CCMS recently hosted its 6th Annual “Docs and Duffers” charity golf tournament & raffle at Bonita Bay Club Naples. This signature fundraising event took place September 28th and raised nearly $26,000 in net proceeds with participation from 110 golfers, 23 sponsors, 50 prize donors, and 20 volunteers.

“We extend our deep gratitude for the continued support we receive for our annual charity golf tournament,” says Dr. Rolando Rivera, Foundation board chair. “The participation of our golfers, supporters, and volunteers raises crucial funds for future medical professionals and healthcare programs in Collier County.”

Dollars raised from the event will provide scholarships for future medical professionals and funding for local healthcare programs in need. The Foundation provided $34,500 in scholarships in 2019, including the Dr. William Lascheid Memorial Scholarship for Medical Students and 6 additional healthcare scholarships.
