Island Hospital Golf Classic Mulligan Match
It is with shared disappointment that we inform you we have decided to cancel the 19th Annual Island Hospital Golf Classic. After closely monitoring the positive test and hospitalization rates in Skagit County, as well as tracking the decisions of other organizations, we feel cancelling this year’s edition of the Golf Classic is in the best interest of all involved and complies with the new recommendations from state and federal agencies on group gatherings.
Although the Golf Classic has been cancelled, the needs of Island Hospital continue and your support is needed now more than ever. Testing for the coronavirus is a key strategy in managing the virus in this pandemic. Island Hospital needs to increase its testing capabilities by over 500 tests per month in order to keep up with the demand. Additional staff will also be needed to facilitate more testing for your community.
Just as a Mulligan enables golfers to redo the previous shot so that they can improve their score on the golf course, our incredible Golf Classic Sponsors have joined together to recreate the revenue lost from the cancelled golf tournament by pooling together their sponsorships to create a dollar-for-dollar match. We are calling this new opportunity the Mulligan Match.
The Mulligan Match will match dollar-for-dollar donations given in support of expanding COVID-19 testing.
