Sponsorships are available for the 39th Annual HK’s Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament, scheduled June 2–4 at The Cove Golf Course at The Lodge of Four Seasons.
“HK’s is one of the lake’s most beloved traditions, and we are grateful for the sponsors whose generous support makes this event possible,” said Terri Hall, Lake Regional director of Fund Development. “Our community is a healthier place because of their giving.”
HK’s sponsors receive extensive exposure during the three-day event. More than 400 participants attend the Meet the Chiefs Party and Auction on Saturday evening, and the Sunday golf tournament draws nearly 250 golfers.
There are more than a dozen sponsorship packages available, from a comprehensive Gold Sponsorship package with VIP benefits and recognition throughout the weekend to hole sponsorships that come with two tickets to the Meet the Chiefs Party and tee box signage.
“Every sponsor level has its own special benefits,” Hall said. “Several of these opportunities are for one sponsor only, and we award sponsorships on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage individuals and businesses interested in sponsoring HK’s to contact us as early as possible.”
Deron Cherry, former safety for the Kansas City Chiefs and a six-time Pro Bowl athlete, will serve as the event’s honorary chair. The HK’s activities will kick off at the VIP/Celebrity Party, scheduled 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 2, in the Marbella Room at The Lodge of Four Seasons. This party, which is open to the public, provides a great opportunity to talk with many Chiefs and Chiefs Ambassadors and other sports celebrities. The evening also will feature live entertainment by The Ralph Butler Band. Sponsors who contribute $1,000 or more receive complimentary tickets. For others, tickets are $50 and must be purchased in advance.
On Saturday, June 3, the Meet the Chiefs Party and Auction will take place in the Granada Room at The Lodge of Four Seasons. There will be silent and live auctions, and items up for bid will include jewelry, golf packages, vacations, sports memorabilia and more. All sponsors and supporters donating auction items with a retail value of at least $100 receive complimentary tickets. For the general public, tickets are $25 and available at the door.
The golf tournament will be held Sunday, June 4, at The Cove Golf Course. The tournament will feature several closest-to-the-hole and hole-in-one prizes, as well as two putting contests. Flights are scheduled in the morning and afternoon. Registration is $295 per golfer and includes a $100 Callaway gift card; on-course refreshments; two tickets to Saturday evening’s Meet the Chiefs Party and Auction; and more.
All proceeds from the 2017 tournament will benefit Lake Regional Outpatient Services. This busy department, which includes ambulatory surgery, receives more than 26,500 visits annually and will be remodeled to enhance patient comfort and privacy and to accommodate the growing number of individuals seeking outpatient services.
