Shane Jordan, Director of Trinity's CancerCare Center indicated how important this event is to the patients and the local community: ''The support we receive for the Building Hope golf event continues to be amazing. It is our goal to continue building the assistance programs at the CancerCare Center and it is due to events such as the Building Hope golf tournament that allows this to happen. Through the years, we have been able to provide financial support in the form of gift and gas cards, increased patient education materials, and improved technology, as well as provide free wigs and compression garments. The great part is that you can be assured the money is used locally. On behalf of the staff at Trinity CancerCare Center and most importantly our patients, I thank you."
The 19th Annual Building Hope Women's Golf Tournament took place on Monday, June 20, 2016; 140 golfers registered to participate in the event held at the Souris Valley Golf Course. The tournament had a fantastic finish as two teams tied for first place after completing all 18 holes. Those two teams then competed in a dramatic putt off to determine this year's champion. There was even more excitement as one of the golfers registered a hole-in-one during the tournament. Following dinner, catered by Paradiso, the golfers were treated by a keynote address from Connie Sundby, a member of the Trinity Health Foundation Board and a breast cancer survivor, entitled Always Have Hope. We are grateful for Midco’s assistance in making this event successful.
