SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a leading nonprofit aimed to transform pediatric care, proudly announced today GolfStatus.org as its official partner for golf event fundraisers. The partnership offers easier event management and advanced fundraising technology to member hospitals, fundraising programs and foundations within the organization’s network. These benefits will also be available to individuals holding golf fundraisers on its behalf.
With 170 member hospitals across the U.S. and Canada, CMN Hospitals serves 10 million kids each year, providing life-saving research and care in support of its mission to save and improve the lives of children. This partnership brings GolfStatus’s robust event management and fundraising technology to long-standing CMN Hospitals golf fundraisers, including those belonging to Jack and Barbara Nicklaus’s Play Yellow for Children’s Hospitals program.
«We’re excited to welcome GolfStatus to our network and offer its extensive platform to our network of hospitals and fundraising programs,» said Chad Phillips, CMN Hospitals Vice President of Programs. «GolfStatus’s platform allows our network to be nimble with events given the changing guidelines and ultimately provide a safe, more holistic experience for organizers and attendees from beginning to end. CMN Hospitals takes pride in the ease of giving back to communities near and far – and this is another step toward that accomplishment.»
Beginning this month, CMN Hospitals event organizers who register their golf outing with GolfStatus will receive a free custom-built event website that makes it easy to market the event, display and sell sponsorships, and securely collect online registrations. Through the web-based software, organizers can manage team pairings, handicaps, sponsorships, and other event logistics. CMN Hospitals’ events powered by GolfStatus also benefit from additional digital sponsorship opportunities; the ability to solicit and collect online donations before, during, and after the event; and the ability to live-score and display leaderboards on-site and online.
The technology also makes possible virtual golf event formats, which CMN Hospitals and its network will leverage in 2021 and beyond. Virtual options include extended-play and multi-course rounds that run alongside or independent of traditional tournaments and allow for flexibility, additional outreach, broader overall participation, and more opportunities to fundraise.
«We’re honored to partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,» said GolfStatus’s Director of Marketing and Communications Katie Casillas. «We look forward to working with the incredible organizations and individuals that support this important mission through golf tournaments nationwide to make an even broader impact.»
