Event to benefit Scripps Radiation Therapy Center
The 43rd Annual Scripps Clinic Invitational Golf Tournament is set for Friday, Oct. 28, 2011, at Torrey Pines South Golf Course, home of the memorable 2008 U.S. Open Championship and annual Farmer’s Insurance Open. Since 1969, Scripps Clinic Invitational Golf Tournament has raised millions of dollars to support lifesaving care at Scripps Clinic and Scripps Green Hospital.
In anticipation of this exclusive amateur tournament, Scripps Clinic will host the annual Invitational Dinner at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011, at 6 p.m. Golfers and guests will enjoy picturesque landscapes, gourmet dining, live entertainment and the opportunity to bid on lavish items during live and silent auctions. This year’s auction items include: two Eagles concert tickets and hotel stay at the M Resort in Las Vegas; two Celine Dion concert tickets and hotel stay at the M Resort in Las Vegas; and a private gourmet dinner with wine for 10 at Pamplemousse Grille.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the new Scripps Radiation Therapy Center on the Torrey Pines Mesa. The new facility will be equipped with highly sophisticated technology that is powerful, fast and flexible, allowing physicians to treat patients with greater precision and in less time than traditional approaches.
When complete, the Scripps Radiation Therapy Center will have the capacity to treat approximately 1,200 patients annually. The center will serve patients primarily from Scripps’ five hospital campuses and 23 outpatient centers in a healing and supportive environment.
