The SRMC Foundation was revitalized in October 2002, for the purpose of helping the local medical center reach its short-ranger and long-range strategic plans. They are committed to providing financial assistance to SRMC as it strives to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art services in easily accessible acute and community-based settings. The proceeds from this years tournament will be used to set up and furnish a new private room for their S.A.N.E. Program (Sexual Abuse Nursing Education Program). The program is designed to specifically work with sexual assault victims that appear in the hospital’s Emergency Room. Having an undisclosed private room, which is equipped with the needed equipment and supplies, will make a significant difference for the victims who have been through such a traumatic experience.

President of the SRMC Foundation Board Ann Thornton spoke about how the tournament went and the reasoning behind this years theme. “Thought it was a grand tournament. Every year we have a fundraiser with something pertaining to the hospital. We decided to devote our money to people who are sexually assaulted this year because we just felt like it was necessary. There were 50 sexual assault victims brought to SRMC last year. Anything that any of us can do for the community or for the hospital we love to do.” She continued to say, “We take pride in what we do and believe in the projects were are doing.”
Brenda Warren, executive director for the SRMC Foundation, added some words as well. “It was another successful event. Thrilled at all the community support by helping us with this project at the hospital. It couldn’t be done without their help. Excellent group of volunteers made this event run smoothly. I really would like to thank our corporate sponsors who stepped up and gave money this year.”
