Golf Legend Nancy Lopez to make special appearance at Self Regional Healthcare Foundation's Mid-Winter Ball

web posted February 19, 2014

GREENWOOD – One of the guests to the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation’s Mid-Winter Ball will be world-renowned golfer Nancy Lopez. Lopez, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, is attending the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation's Mid-Winter Ball to award a Pro-Am golf experience package to one lucky bidder at the ball's silent auction.

In addition to golf for three, the package includes a $200 gift certificate and lunch for each player. The players are also invited to a VIP “Meet the Pros” reception and Pairing Party.

The package is the donation of the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women’s Charity Classic organizers Jim and Denise Medford, who own the Links at Stoney Point.

"I can't think of a better person and a better way to highlight the upcoming golf tournament," said Jim Medford. "Nancy is a sports icon and symbolizes what this tournament is about. We are honored to have her present the package, and come to Greenwood to build excitement for the upcoming LPGA Symetra Tour event."

In addition to the golf experience package, Lopez is donating a staff bag, which she will autograph to the winning bidder of a separate auction.

The Self Regional Healthcare Women's Health Classic will be held May 5-11 at the Links at Stoney Point and includes a four-day LPGA qualifying tournament with 144 golfers, a Pro-Am, and a host of other special events throughout the week. Charitable proceeds will benefit Self Regional Healthcare's women's health initiatives and women's charities in the Lakelands region.

Jack Schwartz, Executive Director of the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation, said Lopez’s visit and the addition of the golf package is an added highlight of the sold-out ball. "The Mid-Winter Ball is always a spectacular event and this golfers’ dream package will be extra icing on the cake," said Schwartz. The golf experience package has an approximate value of $5,000. "This will go a long way toward helping us reach our fund-raising goal," said Schwartz.

The foundation's Mid-Winter Ball raises approximately $100,000 each year to support special programs and equipment purchases at Self Regional Healthcare. This year's proceeds will support the Self Regional Healthcare Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The 2014 ball chairs are Jenni Shingler and Jane Dean; the honorary chair is Martha Dunlap, and the silent auction chair is Jane Marshall.
