Registration has begun for the 2021 Charity Golf Classic, which will be held Friday, Oct. 1, at Burnt Pine Golf Club in Sandestin. The presenting sponsor this year is Silver Sands Premium Outlets: A Howard Group and Simon Center.

Co-chairs of this year’s event are Bill Tate and Cory Fosdyck. Proceeds from the tournament will be used to purchase a state-of-the-art CT scanner for the care of both pediatric and adult patients at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast in Miramar Beach. The scanner is considered one of the industry’s fastest and most versatile scanning modes, allowing an entire adult chest, abdomen and pelvis study to be conducted in approximately one second so patients don’t need to hold their breath.

“With the advanced CT system, we can continue to provide our adult and pediatric patients with the fastest, high-quality imaging while ensuring we are providing a comfortable, patient-centered experience,” said Henry Stovall, regional president, Ascension Sacred Heart. “With a CT-imaging system that can be adapted to comfortably scan children or adults, we would again expand on our capabilities to serve the children of the Emerald Coast area. With vital support from donors, we have made great progress in our pediatrics care in the past year by launching a new 10-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and enhancing our Emergency Department’s services for children.”

Check-in time will be 8 a.m.; shotgun start will be 10 a.m. Cost for a four-person team is $2,000 or $500 per player, which includes breakfast, lunch, on-course snacks and refreshments, and a goodie bag for each player. Beer and drinks will be provided by Kombi Keg 30A. Awards will be presented to the top three teams. A silent auction is planned, as well as live music following the tournament.

Since 2002, the Charity Golf Classic has raised more than $3 million for various expansion efforts, at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast, including the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center, the Family Birth Place, the Judy & Steve Turner Heart and Vascular Center, Cancer Center, the Emergency Department and the Comprehensive Spine Program.

Sponsorships are available. For more information, please contact Lisa Wainwright, development specialist, Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation,, at 850-598-0895 or
