COVINGTON, Ga. - The 28th Annual Bill Taylor Classic Golf Tournament hosted by the Piedmont Newton Hospital Auxiliary will be held Friday, Oct. 5 at The Oaks Course.
The tournament is named for the late Bill Taylor, an avid and excellent golfer, who along with his wife Martha, started the tournament as a fundraiser to support the Piedmont Newton Auxiliary.
“We look forward to the golf tournament each year and invite everyone to attend,” Andrea Lane, director of community relations for Piedmont Newton, said. “The tournament is a fun event that brings the community together to support Piedmont Newton Hospital and the volunteer auxiliary.”
The auxiliary, which coordinates volunteers throughout the hospital, uses proceeds from the tournament and other fundraising events held during the year to improve areas of the hospital, such as purchasing new furniture for the hospital’s waiting areas.
“Our auxiliary members play a significant role in caring for our patients, visitors and guests, as well as assisting the staff members, nurses and physicians at the hospital,” Lane said. “The work they do every day makes the high-quality, patient-centered care that Piedmont Newton delivers possible.”
A health fair will be held before the tournament begins on the putting green from 10 a.m. to 11: 30 a.m. Other games and prizes include the Circle Contest, Ball Drop, and Move Your Ball. Registration includes lunch and beverages, and all tournament players will receive an umbrella and gift package.
