DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – (January 6, 2022) Halifax Health and Derrick Henry, Mayor of Daytona Beach, were scheduled to host the 42nd Annual Daytona Beach Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, November 5, 2021 to raise money for Halifax Health – Keech Pediatric Neighborhood Care and Derbyshire Place.
Due to inclimate weather, the Charity Golf Tournament was cancelled on Friday, November 5, 2021 and participants were given vouchers for a round of golf for another day. Halifax Health and the Mayor of Daytona Beach still raised $8,000 in total for the charities of their choice.
“Each year, we donate half of the events proceeds to Halifax Health – Keech Pediatric Neighborhood Care,” said Joe Petrock, Executive Director of the Halifax Health Foundation. “We are exceptionally proud to provide our chosen charity with a gift of $4,000 this year, despite not being able to host the tournament as planned.”
Halifax Health – Keech Pediatric Neighborhood Care provides a full range of pediatric care for patients up to the age of 18 in a family-centered Medical Home. Halifax Health – Keech Pediatric Neighborhood Care is a central resource for children’s healthcare needs in Volusia County. Additionally, Derrick Henry donated $4,000 to the City of Daytona Beach’s chosen charity, Derbyshire Place.
“We very much appreciate the opportunity to partner with the Mayor of Daytona Beach for this project each year,” said Kathryn Nagib, Foundation Manager at Halifax Health. In the future, the Halifax Health Foundation will continue to give back to the community by hosting this annual Charity Golf Tournament and will strive raise more funds for next year’s chosen charities.
The mission of Halifax Health – Foundation is to support state-of-the-art healthcare for present and future generations in our community, regardless of their ability to pay. To learn more about Halifax Health Foundation, or to make a donation, visit us online at halifaxhealth.org/foundation
