UNC Health Southeastern Foundation swings for good health
UNC Health Southeastern Foundation’s 31st annual Swing for Good Health golf tournament raised close to $24,000 for the Horace E. Stacy, Jr., Academic Scholarship Endowment, which provides financial assistance for medical, nursing, and allied health students in Robeson County and the surrounding region that are committed to our community.
Seventy-seven golfers and sponsors participated in the event which was held June 2 at Pinecrest Country Club Golf Course in Lumberton. Nineteen teams competed for cash prizes, special hole prizes, and one hole-in-one opportunities.
