Last week several representatives from DMU attended the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) annual “Swinging for Scholars” golf outing. We sponsored a hole and distributed DMU golf towels, which turned out to be a useful tool on such a dreary day! And although the day started out cold and rainy, by late afternoon it was hot and humid like a typical July day. Much safer golfing weather once the lightning stopped!
The outing raised over $130,000 for the Iowa Hospital Education & Research Foundation (IHERF) scholarship for health care education. The morning program included a speech from Drake Relays Director Brian Brown, which was inspiring to all in attendance. We also had the opportunity to chat with DMU alums, board members, faculty and some current students who all came out to support the cause.
We’re looking forward to participating again next year – it’s a great event, a great opportunity to network and raise money for scholarships, and the IHA has already guaranteed us beautiful weather!
