PRESTONSBURG – The Highlands Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Highlands Health System, will host the 2015 Highlands Golf Classic on September 2-4 at StoneCrest Golf Course in Prestonsburg.

The Golf Classic is a three day event limited to 40 teams each day. At the tournament, golfers can play choose to play one, two, or all three days for maximum fun and relaxation. The tournament is played as a four member team scramble offering fun for all, from the less experienced to the avid golfer.

The 2014 Golf Classic was successful in raising over $100,000 to benefit the Highlands Center for Autism. This year’s proceeds, after tournament expenses, will again go to benefit the Center for Autism’s Fee Assistance Program to help children with autism receive the treatment that is changing their lives for the better. In previous years, proceeds from the charity event have gone toward helping fund other needed healthcare projects at Highlands including the construction of Highlands new Emergency Department and renovations of patient care areas.

We sincerely appreciate all the participants, our vendors, and corporate sponsors that help make the event a success.
