Healthy Learners 13th annual fundraising golf tournament is a big hit

Now in its 13th year, the annual Healthy Learners Champions for Children Golf Tournament in Memory of George Younginer continues to be the largest fundraiser for Healthy Learners. Thanks to 139 golfers, 34 volunteers and many generous sponsors, the October 17 golf outing at Fort Jackson Golf Club in Columbia, South Carolina, netted more than $86,000 for helping children access needed health care.

The event featured a great day of golf, food, prizes and more, plus a golf driving demonstration by two-time World Long Drive Champion David Mobley. The tournament was presented by AFLAC and had dozens of additional sponsors.

"Each year, proceeds from the golf tournament enable us to help hundreds of children all across South Carolina by providing them with health care services like vision care, dental care, and hearing evaluations," said Jo Pauling-Jones, executive director of Healthy Learners. We are grateful to our supporters and the community for investing in the health and future of the children."

Healthy Learners, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, is devoted to removing children’s health barriers to learning with love and compassion.
