Dave Kurten: The 3WZ Medical Minute is brought to you by Mount Nittany Medical Center. Our topic this week is the upcoming Golf Classic. Our guest is Melissa Aungst. Thanks for joining us today.

Melissa Aungst: Thanks for having me.

Dave Kurten: Melissa, tell us about this year’s Mount Nittany Medical Center Golf Classic. 

Melissa Aungst: This is the 21st year for the Golf Classic, and it is the Medical Center’s signature event. Over the 21 years, $1.3 million dollars has been raised for different programs and services within the hospital.

Dave Kurten: What will this year’s Golf Classic support?

Melissa Aungst: The golf committee made a pledge to the hospital in 2008 to support the construction of a cancer center. They made a 5-year, $500,000 pledge, which will benefit the construction of the Cancer Center – and is a 28,000-square-foot addition to the Medical Center, which is currently being constructed.

Dave Kurten: When and where is this year’s Golf Classic being held?

Melissa Aungst: This year’s Golf Classic is taking place on Saturday, August 20th, at Penn State Golf Courses. The registration for the event begins at 9:30, and the golfers will tee off promptly at 11.

Dave Kurten: How can community members become involved?

Melissa Aungst: There’s lots of ways to get involved: volunteering, there’s many sponsorship opportunities available, individual golf registration is available, or they can just come out and watch the golfers play golf.

Dave Kurten: Where can community members register or learn more about the Golf Classic?

Melissa Aungst: They can give us a call at 814.234.6777 or visit us at foundation.mountnittany.org.
