Seventh Annual Dr. Gil Rojas Memorial Golf Tournament Set for September 26th
Mark your calendars now for Monday, September 26, 2005, when the Seventh Annual Dr. Gil Rojas Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit the Putnam Hospital Center Foundation will be held at the Salem Golf Club in North Salem, NY.
The tournament is being held in memory of Dr. Gilberto Rojas, a member of the hospitalís original medical staff who was an active general surgeon for 28 years. Much respected and loved within the hospital and throughout the community, his legacy of medical care and charitable works and that of his family have been honored with the establishment of a nondenominational chapel adjacent to the hospitalís main lobby. Proceeds from this yearís golf tournament will support the hospitalís master facilities plan calling for a five-story patient tower to include PHCís formalized oncology program, expanded cardiology services, physiciansí offices and private patient rooms; renovation of 20,000 square feet of existing space to centralize services and enhance clinical programs; and the creation of an additional 50% in parking.
The Rojas Family is the lead sponsor of the golf tournament, which is set to begin with registration from 10:00 to 11:30 am, followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 pm. Lunch will be provided and cold drinks will be available on the course throughout the tournament. During the day, there will be a hole-in-one contest and competitions for longest drive and closet to the pin. Following golf, there will be a dinner reception/awards ceremony, with raffles and door prizes.
