NORTH CYPRESS MEDICAL CENTER DONATES $50,000 TO LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION

North Cypress Medical Center hosted its 10th Annual Spring Classic Golf Tournament in May at Blackhorse Golf Club. The hospital donated $50,000 in proceeds from the tournament to the Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF), the tournament’s beneficiary. The Lone Survivor Foundation founded by Navy Seal (Ret.), Marcus Luttrell, restores, empowers and renews hope for wounded service members and their families that are challenged with injuries such as Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), Chronic Pain, and Military Sexual Trauma (MST) through health, wellness and therapeutic support.

The successful tournament hosted approximately 200 golfers and also featured lunch, dinner, awards and a silent auction.

“We were thrilled with the community’s response to this year’s tournament and are excited to be making a sizable donation to a wonderful organization that helps our nation’s true heroes,” said Stacy Thornton, North Cypress Medical Center, director of marketing and tournament organizer.

Prior to start of the tournament, LSF executive director Terry Jung thanked the hospital, sponsors and players for their participation. Houston vocalist, Susan Hickman, then followed with a beautiful rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner. Following the national anthem, a jaw- dropping military flyover was provided by Lonestar Freedom Flight.
