Genesis Pro-Am Challenge
We'd like to thank the Pro-Am Challenge Committee for making this year's Pro-Am Challenge possible.
Davenport Country Club (DCC)
TPC Deere Run (TPC)
In 2016 more than 200 amateurs and PGA Pros teamed up to raise over $120,000 for Nursing Scholarships and seasonal flu vaccines for Quad City area elementary school children.
Funds raised by the Pro-Am Challenge provided scholarships to students seeking futures in nursing and to current Genesis nurses seeking advances in their degrees. Studies continue to show that the increased education of nurses directly enhances the delivery of quality, compassionate health services for all those in need.
During the day of golf, golfers had a chance to make a pledge to Flu-Free Quad Cities. These funds were used to help cover the costs of providing free seasonal flu vaccinations to elementary school children in Scott and Clinton Counties in Iowa and Rock Island County in Illinois. The Genesis Visiting Nurse Association vaccinated nearly 10,000 school children. For every child vaccinated, five other people will be protected from the flu. Together, we can prevent the flu from filling our emergency rooms, emptying our classrooms, and causing work force absenteeism.
