Jamestown, New York (Thursday, January 5, 2012)—On June 20th, Moon Brook Country Club hosted the annual Moon Brook Charity Golf Classic, a Pro-Am golf tournament featuring the top fifteen golf professionals in Western New York.

For the third year in a row, proceeds from the Moon Brook Charity Golf Classic benefited WCA Hospital by supporting Sharing the Gift of Health: The Capital Campaign for Our Emergency Department. With $3,000 given this year, their charitable support now totals $8,000.

“Moon Brook Country Club, and its members who make up the Pro Am Committee, organizes a fantastic tournament,” explains Mike Roberts, Chair of the Moon Brook Charity Golf Classic. “More importantly, for the third year in a row, we were able to raise some dollars for a critically-needed, new Emergency Department at WCA Hospital.”

“On behalf of the volunteers who have come alongside WCA Hospital in this historic campaign effort, I am grateful to Moon Brook Country Club and the Pro Am Committee,” states Lillian Vitanza Ney, M.D., Campaign Chair. “We can very proud of so many generous people who believe in and support our community and our community hospital.”

WCA Hospital’s New Emergency Department
WCA Hospital’s 21st-century Emergency Department is now under full construction and expected to be open in 2012. With great advances in space and privacy, WCA Hospital’s new 18,000 square foot Emergency Department will dramatically improve the overall patient experience.

To date, WCA has surpassed the 85% mark by securing over $14 M toward the $16.5 M capital campaign goal and is accepting gifts and pledges payable through 2013.
