On Monday, October 7, 2013 the inaugural St. Luke' Heart Golf Classic was held at the beautiful Golf Club of Houston. The tournament, replacing the annual Heart Exchange Golf Classic was created to continue to help those affected by heart disease by raising funds for the cardiovascular programs at CHI St. Luke’s Health System and the Heart Exchange Transplant Support Group. With the help and participation of the sponsors and volunteers, the inaugural St. Luke's Heart Golf Classic was a HUGE success! Everyone enjoyed a fun and rewarding day.
St. Luke's foundation presented a check for $65,000 to the Heart Exchange Support Group during the January 15th Wednesday Support Group Meeting.This generous donation will allow the Heart Exchange Support Group, Inc. (a 501(c) (3), nonprofit, chartered in 1986) to continue to educate the general public about organ donation, and to provide financial support to the patients at St. Luke's. The Heart Exchange also makes funds available to St. Luke's nursing staff to further their professional growth through transplant-related seminars.
The Heart Exchange appreciates the St. Luke’s Foundation’s thoughtful and generous donation. We look forward to volunteering in the 2nd Annual St. Luke’s Heart Golf Classic set for Monday, October 6th at the Golf Club of Houston (Formerly Redstone Golf Club).
