2017 AANA Foundation Golf Tournament

In Nebraska, one of the things we all look forward to is our third annual golf tournament – Saturday, July 22th.  This year’s tournament will be held at Woodland Hills Golf Club in Eagle, NE.  The format is a 4 person scramble, with an 8:00 shotgun.

The registration fee is $100 per person or $400 per foursome. Last year we had 12 students who were able to golf for free thanks to the generosity of CRNAs who sponsored them.

2016 AANA Foundation Golf Tourney Recap

Forty-six golfers enjoyed the 2016 AANA Foundation fundraiser coordinated by NANA. Twelve students were able to golf free, thanks to generous sponsorships from CRNAs. The event raised $2,632 for the foundation, which is nearly $1,200 more than last year.

A $300 Dollar yeti cooler was won by Holly Chandler.

NANA thanks everyone who sent money, sponsored students, sent prizes, and bought raffle tickets. We are so excited already about next year’s event as it will be bigger and better! 2017 will be an 18 hole tournament.
