Golfers, Sponsors Raise $150,000 for Desert Mission at 2012 Lincoln Guild Invitational

A generous group of golfers and sponsors at the 26th annual Lincoln Guild Invitational raised more than $150,000 to assist children and families in need.

Participants enjoyed a day of golf Sept. 14 at Wildfire Golf Club in Desert Ridge while celebrating John C. Lincoln's legacy of caring for the community. Co-chairmen of this year's tournament were Mike Stanley, Chief Executive Officer, EB Endeavors, LLC, and internal medicine specialist Larry Gassner, MD, both of whom are members of the John C. Lincoln Health Network Board of Directors.

All proceeds benefited John C. Lincoln's many Desert Mission community service programs, which include emergency food, affordable health and dental care, counseling services and high-quality child care for low income families in our community. In 2011, they changed the lives of more than 35,000 struggling individuals, most of whom were children.

Over the last decade, golfers and sponsors have raised more than $1.5 million for Desert Mission programs.
