Third annual HANF Teeing Off for Tribal Health Golf Classic a swinging success

Last Friday, ANTHC’s Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation (HANF) took its unique and powerful fundraising efforts to the fairways for the third annual installment of its popular Teeing Off for Tribal Health Golf Classic. The one-day event drew 72 players and 17 teams who raised awareness of HANF’s work and more than $30,000 for HANF’s initiatives to strengthen communities and improve health care and services for Alaska Native people across our state.

The tournament was held at Moose Run Golf Course on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. A team sponsored by United Rentals won the event; an Alaska Dispatch News team finished second; and ANMC’s Dr. Barry Grey’s team placed third. Twenty volunteers from ANTHC and Klondike Advertising helped the event run smoothly. HANF thanks all golfers and volunteers, as well as sponsors GCI Connect MD, TelAlaska, Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat Corporation, VALIC, Parker Smith & Feek, TelAlaska, ConocoPhillips Alaska, Klondike Advertising, Craig Taylor Equipment Company, Northern Printing, WisconsinRx/NationalRx, Service Business Printing, Automated Laundry Systems & Supply, Afognak Native Corporation, CMI Alaska, RH Strategic, and Great Originals.

“Despite some rain, our golfers, donors and volunteers all showed up with a spirit that made the event inspiring and fun,” explained Carrie Brown, HANF Director. “We always look forward to the Golf Classic and we truly appreciate everyone who supported this event and HANF’s work. Their participation and giving truly makes an impact in areas where the health needs of our people aren’t being met.”

The HANF team now shift gears to planning its second “wearable art” auction, set for this fall; the group will recruit donations of purses, jewelry, scarves and other accessories in the coming weeks. The event is just one piece of HANF’s fall workplace giving campaign.
