On June 25, Riverview Health Foundation recently hosted more than 200 golfers and 40 volunteers during its 22nd Annual Heartfelt Thanks Golf Tournament at Pebble Brook Golf Club in Noblesville. The event, sponsored by BMO Harris Bank, raised more than $100,000 to benefit Riverview Health.

Officials said the annual tournament helps raise money for the improvement of patient services and facilities at Riverview Health. Some of the causes recently supported by the tournament include:

• Funding a large-bore MRI to better identify health issues, including heart disease, stroke and cancer.

• Purchasing equipment for Riverview Health Heart & Vascular, including a digital imaging cardiac catheterization lab and a 128-slice CT scanner.

• Supporting women’s heart disease programs.

During the past 22 years, Riverview Health Foundation has netted more than $2 million in support of Riverview Health.
