14th Annual Golf Tournament

For the first time Tampa General Hospital Foundation hosted a pre-tournament Pairings Party held on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at the Tampa Yacht & Country Club. This function was sponsored by Christian C. Caldeira, MD and Florida Advanced Cardiothoracic Surgery. During the evening, golfers and their guests enjoyed cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres, checked out the Silent Auction items, picked up their Oakley tee gifts and enjoyed music by transplant patient Bill Ismer. After dinner, guests enjoyed dessert, cordials and coffee while guest speaker and transplant patient Donald Stewart shared his story with us. Following his presentation, auctioneer extraordinaire, Rick Nafe, led our Live Auction.

On Monday, October 22, 2012, golfers enjoyed a clear, cool afternoon, a quick get away from their hectic schedules and tackled the intimidating bunkers of Old Memorial Golf Club. For the 7th year, The Yerrid Foundation was the Tournament Sponsor and Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners was our Old Memorial Sponsor. Chairs, Mark Nouss and Andy Grim again led this year’s committee to a resounding success.
