Tee-off at 8:45am, and includes an enjoyable day of golf, awards, and a banquet luncheon. Prizes include a 3-year lease on a BMW 4-series convertible to golfers making a hole-in-one on a selected Par 5.

The Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization launched by the Medical Society in 2012. The tournament will benefit the Foundation’s scholarship programs for students pursuing degrees in healthcare, and funding for local healthcare programs in need.

“This year alone, we have already provided $32,500 in student scholarships,” said Dr. Rolando Rivera, board chair of the Foundation. “Docs & Duffers is our signature fundraiser, showcasing the philanthropic commitments of CCMS members and partners to promote quality healthcare in Collier County.”

Golf registration rates are $175 per person or $650 per foursome. A limited number of sponsorship and underwriting packages are also still available, allowing companies access to the 100-plus golfers expected to attend. Attendees and non-attendees are also invited to participate in the raffle contest; entrants need not be present to win. Interested golfers, sponsors, and supporters may call (239) 435-7727 or visit the event website for details.
