Annual Golf & Taste Celebration

June 20, 2016

Ridgeview 2016 Golf brochure

Ridgeview Foundation will host its 31st Annual Golf & Taste Celebration at Island View Golf Club in Waconia on Monday, June 20. As Ridgeview Foundation's largest fundraiser, the annual Golf & Taste event brings more than 1,000 people together to raise funds for Ridgeview Medical Center. Volunteers, golfers, bridge, employees, leadership and guests join for a common purpose: to help transform health care.

Since 1986, more than $9 million has been raised to expand the technology and services available to people and communities in the five-county area served by Ridgeview. Proceeds from this year's event support the Lifeline for a Lifetime campaign, a significant new project at Ridgeview's Waconia campus that will change the way emergency services are provided. With aesthetics, privacy and security central to the project, the "Emergency Department for the Future" will have specialized areas and equipment to accommodate senior, pediatric and mental health patients. An observation unit is planned for those patients who need to be monitored prior to either their discharge or admittance to the hospital.

Golf and so much more

The day-long event begins with morning golf, followed by a Bridge Tournament and afternoon golf. The evening Taste Celebration, which begins at 5 p.m., has continued to be a highlight each year, with a large number of local restaurants and vendors serving food and refreshments.

The celebration also includes a silent auction, dinner and program, a live auction and raffle drawing.
