I don’t golf (unless you count the occasional course with windmills and giant concrete octopi), and I’m not much of a social butterfly when it comes to galas, but I do have a special spot in my heart for our UTMB nurses and nurses-in-training. I’ve been around the Salute to Nursing since its first days, when I worked in publications and we helped with their invites and promotional material. I’m very pleased to see they’ve passed the cumulative million-dollar mark in scholarship dollars raised; those dollars help many promising students. If you golf, I know they have a good time and it’s for a great cause.
The Salute to Nursing 2006 Golf Tournament will be held Friday, October 13th, at the Galveston Country Club with the Tournament Party that evening at The Yacht Club from 6:30p.m until 9:30 p.m.. Proceeds from this tournament provide significant and much- needed financial assistance to nursing students of The University of Texas Medical Branch. By participating in the Salute to Nursing, you make a difference not only to our students but also to the patients they will one day serve. Your investment in nursing education is an investment in the future of health care. Contact Julie Best, Special Events Coordinator, 409.772.8264, firstname.lastname@example.org.
