GRMC Auxiliary Golf Outing Success

The UnityPoint Health® – Grinnell Regional Medical Center (GRMC) Auxiliary’s 1st annual golf outing was held on Friday, July 12. With support of sponsors, volunteers and golfers, more than $16,000 was raised to support equipment needs and the purchase of a LUCAS device for the medical center. The GRMC Auxiliary welcomed 104 golfers and 26 teams to the Grinnell College Golf Course.

“We are so thankful for the community support of the auxiliary’s first golf outing,” says Kristin Van Wyk, auxiliary board member and event chair. “Proceeds from the event will support GRMC to purchase a new LUCAS device, a hands-free chest compression device. The GRMC Auxiliary is proud to give back to the medical center to support health care in our local communities.”
