On Monday, May 12, East Jefferson General Hospital physicians, staff, donors, board members, local business leaders and friends of EJGH participated in the 12th Annual EJGH Foundation Golf Classic presented by Millennium Healthcare Management. The tournament was held at Metairie Country Club.

"It has been amazing to see the growth of this event over the last 12 years," says Marc Eagan, Annual Golf Classic Chair and member of The Foundation Board of Trustees. "We are tremendously proud that this was the most successful in its history. Surpassing $105,000 for our total proceeds is a special milestone that will help East Jefferson to continue to provide excellent healthcare to our community."

Prior to the Golf Classic, the annual kick-off Pre-Party, chaired by Amy Uddo, was held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Gerry Cvitanovich on the evening of May 8. Attendees enjoyed jazz entertainment and a silent auction.

"Everyone in our community needs to understand the importance of our Foundation and the support it provides for the hospital," said Uddo. "Whether you are a corporate sponsor, you work at the hospital or you rely on this hospital for excellent medical care, your involvement in our Foundation directly impacts the care our patients receive."

The golf event's presenting sponsor was Millennium Healthcare Management. Other generous sponsors included Cerner and Humana. Pre-party sponsorship support from Jones Walker, Drago's Seafood Restaurant, Aucoin Hart, Iberia Bank, Gilsbar, Budweiser, Moises Wine and Breaux Mart made this year's tournament and pre-party a great success.

The tournament was started by volunteers wanting to make a difference in the lives of EJGH patients and the community. Over the years, contributions from The Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital events have provided strong philanthropic support for specialized patient care, advanced technology, services and capital expansion projects.
