Golf Tournament to Benefit Jefferson Community Health & Life

A charity golf tournament to benefit Jefferson Community Health & Life has been set for Friday, Aug. 7, at the Fairbury Country Club.

A few changes are being made this year to be in compliance with county Directed Health Measures, state guidelines, and CDC recommendations. This year’s tournament will be a two-person scramble. The 18-hole tournament will feature cash prizes along with pin prizes and will begin with an 8:45 a.m. shotgun start.

The entry fee is $200 per team. The field is limited to a maximum of 27 teams. The entry fee includes grab-and-go breakfast and coffee beginning at 7:30 a.m., boxed lunch, gifts for all golfers, mulligans and chances at pin prizes.

Hole sponsorships are also available. Sponsorship is $475 and entitles the sponsor to recognition at the hole sponsored and on the tournament program, and one team entry.

A raffle will also be available for those who choose to donate.

Tournament proceeds are not designated to specific projects, and have been used for a variety of projects at Jefferson Community Health & Life over the years. One large project made possible by unrestricted funds was funding $200,000 (about half the cost) of a new X-ray machine which is safer, faster, more efficient and more comfortable for patients.

Jefferson Community Health & Life, named a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital for Quality by Chartis Center for Rural Health in 2020, operates a 17-bed, acute-care Critical Access Hospital in Fairbury, Neb., offering inpatient and outpatient services, including surgery, therapy, screenings, and emergency services. Jefferson Community Health & Life offers additional health and life services, including Fairbury and Plymouth clinics (primary and family care), Burkley Fitness Center, Gardenside (long-term care), and Home Health services. In addition, Jefferson Community Health & Life supports numerous education programs and support groups.
