Former Kansas City Chiefs Fullback Tony Richardson will help kick off the 34th Annual HK’s Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament at a VIP/Celebrity Party scheduled 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 1, at The Lodge of Four Seasons.
The invitation-only party for sponsors who contribute $1,000 or more will feature entertainment by Don and Suzy Akers. Guests can mingle with Richardson, honorary chair of this year’s tournament, as well as other sports celebrities in the Lodge’s Marbella Ballroom.
In addition, a Pairing Party and Silent/Live Auction will be held at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 2, in Campana Hall at The Lodge of Four Seasons. Many items will be up for bid this year, including jewelry, golf packages, weekend getaways, sports memorabilia and more.
The golf tournament will be held Sunday, June 3, at The Cove Golf Course. The Cove, the Lodge’s signature course, was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr. The 18-hole, par-71 championship course challenges guests with its rolling greens, 65 bunkers and signature hole 4.
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.
Proceeds from this year’s tournament will help Lake Regional purchase a hana© orthopedic surgical table, enabling surgeons to perform total hip replacements through a single, anterior incision. Patients recover more quickly, typically within weeks, from this less-invasive technique compared to traditional methods.
Registration is $295 per golfer and includes on-course refreshments, two tickets to Saturday evening’s Pairing Party and Silent/Live Auction and more. In addition, Lake Regional Fund Development is accepting merchandise and gift certificates for the silent auction. Donors who give items with a retail value of $100 or more will receive two invitations to the HK’s Pairing Party and Silent/Live Auction.
