“We are always looking to give our sponsors and golfers the absolute best experience and so we’ve made changes to our schedule this year I think everyone is going to love,” says Meghan Connell, Skaggs Foundation president. “This year, we are holding our tournament on a Monday morning so golfers won’t be facing the midday heat. We can’t think of a better way to start the week than at Branson Hills Golf Club – the course ranked No. 1 in the state by Golfweek.”
Skaggs Classic sponsorship opportunities begin at $500 with team sponsorships starting at $1,000. All proceeds raised help support Skaggs Foundation.
“Every year, millions of visitors come to the Ozarks to enjoy our lakes, shows and attractions, but at Skaggs Foundation, we recognize that our greatest resources are the people of our community,” Connell says. “Our mission is to protect that resource by supporting community initiatives dedicated to improving health and wellness throughout Taney and Stone counties.”
Here are just a few of the ways Skaggs Foundation is improving health and wellness:
- Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab Patient Scholarships provides financial assistance to patients who have suffered a cardiac or pulmonary event but unable to afford recommended rehabilitation services to regain health and improve quality of life. In 2017, the foundation provided scholarships to 122 local residents who otherwise could not have afforded these vital services.
- Cancer Center Meals are provided to patients receiving long treatments through lunchtime at CoxHealth Cancer Center Branson. Last year, Skaggs Foundation made possible more than 1,100 meals for these worthy individuals.
- Since inception in 2002, Skaggs Foundation has awarded more than $328,950 in scholarships to local students pursuing careers in the medical industry. At Skaggs Foundation, we believe there is no better way to ensure the health care industry in our area has a bright future than by supporting education today. Last year alone, 53 students received scholarships from the foundation.
- Skaggs Legacy Endowment is a restricted endowment fund made possible by a generous gift from CoxHealth in 2013. The foundation awards grants annually to local agencies dedicated to improving health and wellness in Taney and Stone counties. More than 25,000 lives are expected to be impacted by current Skaggs Legacy Endowment grants.
