Press Release

The 14th annual "Friends Fore St. James" golf tournament to benefit St. James Foundation raised more than $36,000 at the event held Friday, September 8, at Twin Hickory Golf Club in Hornell. Twenty-eight teams and thirty-one sponsors participated in this year’s tournament, as well as twenty-four volunteers from the hospital and community. The Foundation provides resources to benefit St. James Hospital, and all proceeds from the golf tournament will directly benefit the transformation of healthcare services in Hornell.

"We’re very appreciative of the continued support this tournament receives and the dollars raised each year," said Dustin Hewit, Foundation Executive Director. "As we move forward with our plans for the construction of our new Hospital, we’re hopeful the community will continue to show its steadfast support for local healthcare services here at St. James Hospital."
