The 16th Annual Tournament of Champions took place on Monday, May 16, at Kenmure Country Club. The Tournament raised over $96,000 to be used to purchase a new state-of-the-art medication management system that safeguards the drugs and pharmaceutical orders our physicians place for patients at Pardee. This year’s event hosted a full field of 136 players for our traditional 18-hole event in the afternoon and also hosted 24 golfers for the second annual 9-hole tournament that took place in the morning. Over 40 volunteers ensured that the event ran smoothly. This event has raised more than $1.1 million since 1996 to support Pardee Hospital facilities, equipment and programs. Thank you to the many sponsors, volunteers, committee members, golfers, and staff who made the year’s Tournament of Champions such a great success.
Dr. Kiskaddon, Pardee Hospital's Chief Medical Officer, recently showed off his bagpipe skills at Pardee Hospital Foundation's Generation of Excellence Community Event. These educational events are hosted throughout the community. This particular event was hosted by Jack and Mary Jane Swanson at Carolina Village. Guests enjoyed ice cream from TCBY, some bagpipe music and information about the hospital.
Recently, the residents of Carolina Village got an ear-ful! A reception was hosted by RE and Rhoda Harmon, the guests were residents and friends from the community, and the topic was Pardee Hospital. The speaker was none other than the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert T. Kiskaddon, who has a flare for sharing his Scottish heritage. He educated the guests on all things quality, which Pardee and its patients value. Tell us when you have experienced quality in healthcare. We want to know!
The Pardee Hospital Foundation's Heritage Society consists of donors who have made cumulative lifetime gifts of $250,000 or more. The donors have been honored and recognized with their names on display at Pardee Hospital in the hallway of the main lobby just outside the gift shop. Below is a photo of the display. We are thankful for the generosity of these loyal donors.
The legacy of giving at Pardee Hospital began with an initial gift of $100,000 from the Ivor Pardee family. We continue that legacy of giving through the Heritage Society of Pardee Hospital Foundation.
