Event Raises Over $250,000 for Patient Programs and Services

BRONX, NY, August 9, 2021 – On August 2nd, Calvary Hospital hosted its 33rd Annual Golf & Tennis Classic at Brae Burn Country Club and Century Country Club in Westchester County and raised over $250,000 for its programs and services. More than 150 participants attended the event, which included brunch, dinner, silent auction, and raffle prizes.

In recognition of the outstanding job that the entire staff did during the pandemic, every golfer and tennis player was assigned a Calvary employee to play in honor of. When players won any of the prizes on the course or court, their employee “partner” also received a $100 Amazon gift card.

The tennis portion of Calvary’s annual event helped fund the Berberich Calvary Care  Technician (CCT) Scholarship. The 2021 scholarship was awarded to Davida Amaker. Since 2016,  Ms. Amaker has worked tirelessly at Calvary’s Bronx campus providing outstanding care to hundreds of patients. She has impressed her colleagues with her work ethic and sensitivity to the patients and families she cares for. Her goal is to become a registered nurse and continue helping even more people.
