The Rideout Foundation, Committee and Board of Directors wish to thank the more than 100 Sponsors, more than 200 golfers, many volunteers and supporters for their help and continued dedication to our independent, not-for-profit health care organization.

For more than 100 years, neighbors - and perhaps generations of families - have turned to Rideout Health for their health care, and in return they have contributed generously to help grow programs, services, and to build facilities. The Rideout Health Foundation nurtures that long-standing partnership with the community. This partnership helps us make a positive difference in our community's health care and medical services.

Every gift regardless of its size makes a difference and 100% of EVERY donation benefits the program or service that donors choose – right here at home.
