2013 Annual Golf Invitational Generates Support for Mount Carmel College of Nursing

Columbus, OH… It was another outstanding year for the Mount Carmel Foundation Golf Invitational benefitting Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN). Over $121,000 was raised for much-needed student scholarships and new technologies. The 19th annual golf outing was held at the Lakes Golf and Country Club in Westerville, Ohio on Monday, July 15.

The funds raised from this event will help many students realize their dreams of becoming professional registered nurses. More than 90 percent of MCCN students receive financial aid.

"This is a great venue for our business and community leaders to enjoy a great day of golf and make a substantial difference in the lives of our nursing students at Mount Carmel,” said Jan Burkey, director of development at MCCN. “We are deeply grateful to our sponsors for investing in nursing education and the future of healthcare in our community."

This year’s presenting and title sponsors include American Electric Power (AEP), HHA Services, PNC Bank, Bailey Cavalieri and Deloitte Center for Health Solutions. A total of 43 corporate sponsors participated.
