Auburn Community Hospital (ACH) and The ACH Foundation recently announced our decision to cancel the 25th Annual Golf Tournament fundraiser scheduled for September 17, 2021 at Highland Country Club in Auburn N.Y.
Over the course of the last few weeks, the ACH Covid-19 Response Team has been meeting to discuss our readiness plans for a potential surge of Covid-19 patients related to the “Delta Virus.” We have been experiencing an increase in patients in the hospital and we have been working closely with the Cayuga County Health Department to monitor active cases. The surge in new cases is significant and we will not put patients, employees and the community at risk by hosting a such a large gathering.
We are grateful for the amazing generosity of our golfers, sponsors and volunteers who turn out every year to support ACH and the work we do to keep our community safe and healthy. And we hope to bring this event back in 2022.
SUPPORT OUR WORK
This continues to be a challenging time for the hospital and our primary care practices as we battle the COVID-19 epidemic. Small community hospitals like ACH have been disproportionately affected with threats to our health and economic stability. We were looking forward to hosting this fundraiser as proceeds from the Golf Classic would have helped expand the life-saving and life-changing services offered by ACH, right here at home.Donate Now
