April 8, 2021.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the links at Whirlwind Golf Club!

Volunteers and Friends of Dignity Health Foundation East Valley gather together in the spring each year to honor the legacy of a grateful patient, George Rozsa, who proudly expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the hospital and clinical teams who care for him. Over the years, this event has raised crucial funds that has allowed our clinical team to create new programs and expand health care services in the east valley. Each day, our Dignity Health family, known as health care heroes, come to work to provide compassionate care to our loved ones and neighbors when they need it most. 

We honor every caregiver at Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers through the funds raised from the George Rozsa Golf Classic. 100% of the funds raised from this event will be directed to support the purchase of lifesaving equipment needed to provide the best care to our community. 

Both courses are reserved at Whirlwind and will be golfing a traditional 18 hole, 4 person scramble.  On course contests include: Glass Break, Beat the Pro, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and a Putting Contest.  Lunch includes individually package taco and brisket stations with sides and desserts. Golfers will have the opportunity to sample beverage on the course from local vendors. It's sure to be a day of fun, all to support the livesaving equipment needs of our hospitals.

The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, sponsors and fellow teammates are at the forefront of the planning of the 2021 George Rozsa Golf Classic. The following precautions will take place:

  • Every player and volunteer will be screened with a temperature check at registration.
  • All attendees will be asked to wear a face mask when near another person.
  • A mask and hand sanitizer will be available for each player and volunteer at registration and on their carts.
  • A limited number of golf carts are available for single ridership. If players want single ridership, please call the Health Foundation at 480.728.3931 and let us know at least one week before the event.
  • Players may ride in the same cart at their discretion.
  • Players should maintain adequate physical distance from other foursomes.
  • Golfer gifts and golf course rules will be placed on carts before start of tournament.
  • In addition, it is expected that anyone who does not feel well should not participate on the day of the tournament.

And, as the day of the events nears, the tournament's approach may be modified, based on CDC guidelines.

As always, you may call us at (480) 728-3931 to make a gift or consider options for your giving. We are grateful to be here to serve and to support our caregivers who provide excellent care to our patients and families.  We could not fulfill our mission without the support of our community.
