ECUA Employees' Golf Tournament Raises $17,000




Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) Employees’ Golf Tournament organizers presented a check for $17,000 on Wednesday, May 18, to Dr. Henry E. Roberts, president of the Sacred Heart Foundation.  The donation was the result of the 2011 tournament held at the Scenic Hills Country Club on April 22. “Over the past 14 years, the ECUA Employees’ Golf Tournament has contributed over $125,000 in the hospital’s ministry with children,” said Dr. Roberts.         

According to the ECUA Employees’ Golf Tournament event organizers Bill Ellis, Doug Gibson, and Ron Doolittle, “Over the previous years we made the annual event a top priority. The money generated will contribute to the building and construction of the Children’s Garden and Playroom Renovation project and renovation of Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.”

 “The tournament is successful because of the financial support we receive from Diamond Sponsor, Camp Dresser & McKee, over thirty additional sponsors, and the event participants. We are very proud of the excellent work the Foundation does in our community and we feel blessed to be able to contribute,” added Ellis. 

The ECUA Employees’ Golf Tournament contributions to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital have helped to make it a state-of-the-art facility, and is Northwest Florida’s only Level III intensive care nursery, serving 14 counties throughout the region.
