George Rozsa Golf Classic 2021

A huge “Thank you” to all of you for making the George Rozsa Golf Classic a smashing success!

Participation this year was the highest ever with 238 golfers and over 30 volunteers. Many thanks to top sponsors Delta Diversified and Sante - plus all of our incredible sponsors, vendors and individuals for your incredible in-kind and day-of donations. You provided golfers and volunteers with a fun experience and the fuel to keep going.

The wonderful professionals from BackSwing Golf helped us raise a record $22,000 through our on-course games. Amazing!

Through your tremendous effort, energy and generosity, we were able to raise over $175,000.

Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to purchase lifesaving equipment such as ECMO pumps (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). The ECMO is used to pump and oxygenate a patient's blood outside the body, allowing the heart and lungs to rest, which has been much-needed during the pandemic.  A patient wanted to say thank you: 

"My name is Ryan Parker, and last July I contracted a devastating case of COVID-19. Being a resident of Chandler, I naturally went to Chandler Regional’s ER when I got sick. I got so sick that I nearly passed away, and had to be transferred to St Joseph’s by ambulance to receive life-saving care, specifically ECMO. To have ECMO available at Chandler Regional would have been a huge blessing to my family and me, but I’m fortunate to have survived. ECMO is truly life-saving technology, and I’m so thankful it saved mine.”

We are still seeking donations to fully fund this entire program. To donate with 100 percent of your gift going to this project, please click on the ECMO link on this page. 

To our volunteers and amazing golf committee - a million thanks!
