Robson Ranch Texas Sponsors Saving Strokes Golf Tournament
The Robson Ranch Texas Women’s Golf Association sponsored the Second Annual Saving Strokes golf tournament to raise awareness about cardiovascular diseases and related deaths and to raise money for the American Heart Association (AHA).
About the Saving Strokes Golf Tournament
Under the leadership of Diane Bent, Darlene Lamb, Patricia Sands, Maureen Fitzgerald, and Brenda Alford, the tournament attracted 120 women golfers. The golfers also learned about CPR and the use of the AED equipment. Denton, Argyle, Northlake, and Sherman emergency department professionals were positioned on par 5 holes to offer information. After finishing the play, a lunch of heart-healthy food awaited the golfers. Jenny Eyer, VP for Health Strategies, and Emily Gerstner, VP for Go Red for Women Campaign, thanked the women for their support of AHA. They talked about the possible partnerships between AHA and Robson Ranch TX to help educate more residents about strokes.
Lunch sponsors were:
- Wise Health Emergency Center
- iCare Urgent Care
- Lamar National Bank
- Construction by Southern Roots
- Wise Health Surgical Hospital at Argyle
Raffle prizes, a 50/50 split, and other contributions yielded a donation of $7,200 for the AHA. This, combined with the $11,000 raised at the 2021 tournament, made an annual donation of $18,200 from the Robson Ranch Women’s Golf Association to the AHA.
Golfers landing closest to the hearts on par 3 holes were Ruth Brock, Chris Hagan, Peggy Puckett, and Alice Wright. Most Creative Decorated Carts were Mary Brock, Shannon Dunson, Vicki Shoemaker, and Jackie Williams. Most Creative Team Name, “Fore Friends with Heart,” was Maureen Fitzgerald, Angie Gay, Sue Halsted, and Judy Markley. The day was filled with joy and a feeling that everyone had gained something special to save someone’s life in the future. Sponsors for the tournament were Southern Roots DnA Boutique, Farmers Insurance, Adams Exterminating Company, Southridge Dental, Leigh Hilton PLLC Elder Law, and Coker, Robb & Cannon Family Law.
Saving Strokes did not end after the tournament, however. Subsequently, 16 representatives from the AHA, Liz Robertson of Go Red for Women Campaign and Jenny Eyer, came to teach residents how to save a life. With startling statistics, humbling facts, and heartbreaking stories, the women described and demonstrated how to save a life. They showed life-saving techniques, and participants tested out their skills. One hundred twenty-two Robson Ranchers attended four sessions. Most importantly, attendees left with the knowledge of how to assist someone when a cardiovascular attack, hits them.
