We are thrilled to announce the arrival of the highly anticipated 14th Annual FHF Golf Tournament, set to take place August 18th, 2023 at Mirror Lake Golf Course. This prestigious event brings together golf enthusiasts, sponsors, and philanthropists from across the region to support a worthy cause while enjoying a day of friendly competition on the greens.
This year, we are proud to announce that our fundraising efforts are dedicated to acquiring a new EKG machine for Boundary Community Clinics. The vital role this medical equipment plays in diagnosing and monitoring cardiac conditions cannot be overstated. By raising funds to cover the cost of $17,195.54, we aim to enhance the clinic’s ability to provide essential healthcare services to our community.
The FHF Golf Tournament has gained a reputation for its commitment to making a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals and families in need. Year after year, our participants and sponsors have demonstrated exceptional generosity, contributing to numerous successful fundraising initiatives. We are confident that the 14th edition will be no exception, as we strive to surpass our fundraising target and improve healthcare accessibility for all.
In addition to supporting this important cause, the FHF Golf Tournament promises an unforgettable experience for all attendees. Participants can expect a meticulously designed golf course, exciting competitions, and a delightful atmosphere filled with camaraderie and sportsmanship. Furthermore, generous sponsors will have the opportunity to showcase their brands and enjoy recognition throughout the event.
We invite you to join us in this remarkable endeavor by participating in the 14th Annual FHF Golf Tournament or by contributing as a sponsor. Together, let’s tee up for a better tomorrow, where quality healthcare reaches those who need it the most.
2022 FHF Golf Tournament
Friday, September 9th, 2022
Mirror Lake Golf Course
Fry Healthcare Foundation is excited to get back into the swing of things and host their 12th annual FHF Golf Tournament raising funds for Boundary Community Hospital. The event will be held at Mirror Lake Golf Course in Bonners Ferry on Friday, September 9th; registration begins at 8:00 am, and the shotgun start will be at 9:00 am.
The Fry Healthcare Foundation is a nonprofit that collects and disperses funds, goods, and services to meet the ongoing needs of Boundary Community Hospital and Extended Care Facility. They strive to fund anything from various hospital programs, purchasing state-of-the-art medical equipment, as well as financing upgrades and expansion projects. They have raised well over $1 million over the past two decades, and a large portion of that comes from its two primary fundraisers throughout the year.
We are excited to have various prize-winning contests at the tournament, such as longest drive, longest putt, most accurate drive, and closest to the pin. The Great Golf Ball Drop will also be back.
2020 Golf Tournament
As the non-profit that supports Boundary Community Hospital, the Board of Directors for Fry Healthcare Foundation (FHF) has decided to cancel their Annual Golf Tournament for 2020. “The current pandemic has affected our community and businesses and we believe that having a fund raiser at this time is not in the best interest of our Foundation,” said Linda Hiatt, Chair of the FHF Golf Tournament. “We encourage everyone to support our local businesses and put their money into the local economy so that we can come through this together.”
Please join us in supporting our past sponsors and plan to participate in the Tournament next September. Sponsors for the 2019 tournament included Gardiner Prime Angus Ranch, Edward Jones Investments, Pace-Kerby & Co., P1FCU, Medicine Man Pharmacy, Riverside Auto Center, Beck’s Furniture, Boundary Community Hospital Board of Trustees, Kootenai Health, Yellowstone Insurance Exchange, and Life Flight Network. Donors included BF Redi-Mix, The Dressing Room, Cloud Eleven Mountain Farms, Mugsy’s Tavern and Grill, Roxanna Little Designs, Steve Nelson, Beth Wrigley, Auburn Crest Hospice, John Mace, and IBC Signs. We appreciate all of the players and sponsors who have participated in the tournament over the past 11 years. Special thank you to Ralph Lotspeich and the crew at Mirror Lake Golf Course.
The Fry Healthcare Foundation has reserved the Kootenai River Inn for the Festival of Hearts for February 13, 2021. Donations to support the team at Boundary Community Hospital are always welcome.
Take advantage of the beautiful summer weather and play a round on our beautiful local golf course. We will see everyone next year!
