The 2017 Triple Swing, a weekend-long fundraiser for the St. Bernards Foundation, will include a dinner dance and two different golf classics. Dates for the annual events are June 24-26.
Activities of the three-day long event will begin on Saturday, June 24 with a New York City-themed casual dinner dance at 6 p.m. at St. Bernards Auditorium. Entertainment will be provided by The Soul Shockers.
Those purchasing tickets for the fun evening will be eligible for a variety of giveaways and will have opportunity to make purchases at both live and silent auctions. Guests will be able to use online mobile bidding for silent auction items. Tickets can be purchased individually for $100 or a table of eight for $1,000.
On Sunday, June 25, the VIP Golf Classic will be held at the Jonesboro Country Club exclusively for platinum, gold and silver sponsors of Triple Swing. PGA Top 100 Instructor Rob Akins will be on hand to put on a short-game clinic for the participants. All participants will be custom fitted for a complementary Cleveland wedge and will also receive a tee gift, commemorative team photo, on-course refreshments and prizes for the first-, second- and third-place teams.
The 28th Triple Swing Golf Classic will be held on Monday, June 26, also at the Jonesboro Country Club. The Triple Swing Golf Classic will feature a four-player scramble format, with a choice of either a morning or afternoon flight. Tournament participation includes green and cart fees, tee gift, commemorative team photo, breakfast and lunch as well as on-course refreshments and snacks. Prizes will be awarded for first- through third-place teams, and all players will be eligible to participate in the golf ball drop with a chance to win a $500 VISA gift card.
Proceeds from Triple Swing will benefit the expansion and renovation of the St. Bernards Heartcare Center. Each day, the St. Bernards team of intensive care doctors, cardiologists, heart surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals treats patients suffering from all forms of cardiac disease, from common heart problems to life-threatening heart conditions. The care provided at the St. Bernards Heartcare Center is cutting edge: St. Bernards is the first hospital in Arkansas to offer the world's smallest pacemaker for patients with bradycardia, was the first hospital in Arkansas to offer the Watchman LAAC Implant and was the only hospital in Arkansas to receive the highest rating from the American Heart Association for its treatment of patients suffering from STEMI heart attacks for three consecutive years. When the renovation and expansion is completed, the St. Bernards Heartcare Center will house four state-of-the-art cardiac cath and vascular laboratories and two electrophysiology labs, one of which is a combination EP/hybrid lab.
Triple Swing is sponsored by the St. Bernards Advocates, a group of community leaders dedicated to supporting the mission of St. Bernards through fundraising, education and healthcare programs that involve the community.
The Chair and Co-Chair for this year’s Triple Swing events are Justin Parkey and Rob Lance.
