February 2, 2020 – In celebration of Leap Year 2020, the AJ Donohue
Foundation and the
Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation have partnered to create the “Leap for Kids” Gala and Golf
Tournament fundraising events. For every dollar the Southeast Georgia
Health System Foundation raises for the campaign, the AJ Donohue Foundation
will match it, up to $100,000.
The Leap for Kids funds will support the creative renovation and redesign
of Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus pediatric
in-patient unit. A key purpose of this initiative is to build a new, state-of-the-art
play room that helps children take their minds off of medical treatment
and procedures and provides a cheerful environment for pediatric patients
and their families.
The weekend event will kick-off with the "Leap for Kids" Gala,
Friday, Feb. 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Jekyll Island Westin. This club
casual event is $85 per person and includes a cocktail reception, strolling
dinner and live music with Owen Plant and Scott Pallot.
The following day, Saturday, Feb. 29, will be the “Leap for Kids”
13th annual AJ Donohue Memorial Golf Tournament at Jekyll Island Golf
Center with a 10 a.m. shotgun start. Entry fee is $125 per player or $475
per 4 player team. Entry fee includes green fees, practice range, prizes,
breakfast, lunch, entry to 19th Hole Celebration and beverages all day.
Discounted Gala tickets are available for golfers who register as a foursome.
Entry deadline is Friday, Feb. 20. For more information or to register
