TRMC Foundation to hold Kentucky Derby Gala
03/20/2017

The Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) Foundation will be hosting a Kentucky Derby Gala on Saturday, April 22, 7:00 p.m. to midnight, at The Golf Club of South Georgia in Tifton.  Attendees are encouraged to wear attire such as hats and bowties for this derby-themed event, which will include a seated dinner, live music, a dance floor, silent auction and a diamond giveaway.  Tickets are $125 per person and are tax deductible.  All proceeds benefit the TRMC Foundation.

“You don’t have to make the trip to Churchill Downs to experience the Kentucky Derby,” said Mandy Brooks, executive director of the TRMC Foundation.  “This will be a fun evening featuring exquisite food, cocktails, dancing, unique silent auction and more, all benefitting a great cause.”

The TRMC Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching healthcare in the community through fundraising, medical equipment donations, building project assistance, patient experience enhancements, medical scholarships and more.

The funds from this annual fundraiser have benefited the Foundation’s Heart Safe Community initiative in the past.  “This program has been very successful over the years, donating ten 12-lead EKG machines and 77 Automatic External Defibrillators throughout South Central Georgia,” said Brooks.  “In 2016, the Foundation fostered partnerships with the House of Hope, Tifton’s first women’s shelter, the TRMC Anita Stewart Oncology Center, the Tiftarea YMCA and recent tornado victims throughout the region.  The Kentucky Derby Gala will raise monies for the foundation’s Community Fund, which provides support for community programs within Tift Regional’s service area.”

Brooks said a shuttle service will be available for attendees.  “For those who would like to utilize the shuttle, we ask that they make a reservation by April 20,” Brooks said.

Tickets and shuttle reservations can be made by calling (229) 391-3310 or by sending an email to mandy.brooks@tiftregional.com.  The Golf Club of South Georgia is located in Tifton at 3922 U.S. Highway 41, near Sunsweet.  Visit www.trmcf.com for more information.
