The Crittenton Hospital Medical Center Foundation celebrated its 33rd Golf, Tennis & Fun Walk on Monday, June 18th. Over 300 guests from around Metro-Detroit gathered at Great Oaks Country Club to join in this day-long celebration. Activities included breakfast, a two-mile fun walk, tennis, morning and afternoon golf, lunch, cocktail reception, dinner and evening program.
This year’s evening program featured a video testimonial from Tim Crawford, Golf, Tennis & Fun Walk Committee Chairman, who shared his personal life-saving experience at Crittenton Hospital Medical Center. Following the presentation and dinner, a live auction offered guests the opportunity to bid on packages such as tickets to the sold-out Target Fireworks, a golf package for next year’s benefit and the naming rights to a janitor’s closet in the new South Tower.
Proceeds from this event will support the Crittenton Foundation’s Cornerstone Campaign for construction of the new South Tower. The South Tower will provide the space necessary for new medical technology, private patient rooms and centers for medical education.
