Golfers Raise $109,760 For Genesis Nursing Scholarships

More than 200 golfers contributed to the quality of health care in the region by participating in the annual Genesis Pro-Am Challenge golf event.

Corporate sponsors and a full field of 212 golfers helped raise $109,760 toward Genesis nursing scholarship programs. Scholarships for current and future nurses help Genesis meet the health needs of the region.

"Each dollar of proceeds from this event helps nurses complete bachelor or master’s degrees,’’ explained Missy Gowey, executive director, Genesis Health Services Foundation. “The advanced training of Genesis nurses helps us provide the best patient outcomes, and safest outcomes possible.

“It is our patients who benefit from having highly educated, skilled nurses at their bedsides.’’

Highlighting the field were LPGA professionals Beth Bader, Elaine Crosby and Gail Graham.

Lujack Lexus of the Quad Cities and Quad-City Bank and Trust were major sponsors of this year’s event.
