ORMOND BEACH, FLA. – (June 23, 2022) The Halifax Health Foundation accepted a $20,000 donation from Oceanside Country Club and The Sally Golf Tournament. Proceeds will benefit the Charles L. & Miki N. Grant Cancer Center for Hope and also the Betty Jane France Women & Children Health Initiatives.
The South Atlantic Women’s Amateur Championship, also known as The Sally, is one of the oldest amateur golf classics in the country, dating back to 1926. This week long tournament in January welcomes women from all over the world to Ormond Beach to compete against LPGA superstars and those rising the ranks in the golf world. The winner of The Sally gets to play in the Epson Tour event.
Sally Tournament chairman, Chuck Grant says, “We were pleased with the competition and we are especially pleased that the funds raised are reinvested in our community through Halifax Health to support Halifax Health Women’s and Children’s care. Halifax Health continues to provide the highest level of care in the area in cancer, stroke, trauma, mental health and more for all. This donation is part of Oceanside Country Club’s commitment to the community.”
The donations came from sponsorships and also from ticket sales to November’s ‘Taste of Oceanside with Friends’, an evening where local restaurants all serve their best dishes to show off their abilities.
This generous donation will help benefit the technology and resources in the Charles L. & Miki N. Grant Cancer Center for Hope. With The Sally Tournament being female-centered, Oceanside Country Club wanted to make sure the proceeds benefitted women and children in the best capacity possible.
