Minnesota Twins players, coaches and alumni joined baseball fans and business sponsors at the 22nd Annual Minnesota Twins Celebrity Golf Classic at The Club at Gateway, which raised more than $76,000 in support of the Integrative Medicine Program at the Lee Health Regional Cancer Center, Southwest Florida’s premier cancer care center that treats all aspects of patient care under one roof. The Center has received accreditation with commendation from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.

This annual event included golf with a Minnesota Twins player or personnel, lunch before the 1p.m. shotgun start, on-course refreshments and hole-in-one prizes. A dinner following the tournament was open to players and non-players and included cocktails, a tremendous dinner by Chef Dan and the opportunity to bid on exclusive silent auction items. Numerous Members at The Club at Gateway also volunteered to help throughout the tournament.

“We are inspired by the continued support of the Minnesota Twins, the Club at Gateway, and all of the volunteers who made this tournament possible,” commented Chris Simoneau, Chief Foundation and Development Officer, Lee Health. “Funds raised through the event will benefit our most challenged neighbors and friends, those that need our support as they battle cancer and receive treatment at the Regional Cancer Center of Lee Health. We are eternally grateful that the Twins continue this great partnership.”
