Saratoga Hospital Golf Invitational Raises $158,642
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY, September 13, 2017 — The Saratoga Hospital Golf Invitational raised a record-breaking $158,642 this year to benefit the Hospital’s RN Scholarship Program. Held at Saratoga National Golf Club on September 7, the annual fundraising event presented by A.O.W. Associates, Inc. included more than 300 golfers and guests in attendance.
Since the scholarship program was launched in 2002, 83 recipients have earned their associate’s, bachelor’s, or master’s degree in nursing and currently 54 recipients are working toward their degree. The investment in nursing education at Saratoga Hospital has a profound impact on the entire organization, most notably reflected in the Hospital’s Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center—the highest honor an organization can receive for professional nursing practice. Saratoga Hospital has maintained Magnet designation since 2004, when the hospital became the first in the Capital Region to attain this designation. Statewide, only 26 hospitals have earned Magnet recognition. Saratoga Hospital is one of two in the Capital Region.
The ongoing success of the Saratoga Hospital Golf Invitational would not be possible without presenting sponsor A.O.W. Associates, Inc.; major sponsors WNYT News Channel 13, Pepsi Beverages Company, Saratoga National Golf Club, Keeler BMW, Maximilian and Deborah Stone, and Camelot Print & Copy Center; and all of the dedicated event sponsors, golfers, and volunteers.
