Latrobe Area Hospital Aid Society 2022 Golf Outing

Latrobe Area Hospital Aid Society 2022 Golf Outing

The Latrobe Area Hospital Aid Society held another successful golf outing on Saturday, August 20, 2022, at Glengarry Golf Links. LAHAS received $17,340 in sponsorships. Approximately 91 people donated money, gift baskets, and products to support our event. We had 95 registered golfers and 15 volunteers. This year we celebrated a profit of more than $18,000, and we continue to accept donations.

We are grateful for the support of Excela Health, our members, and the greater community. The mission of LAHAS is to maintain a viable membership in Excela Health, act as ambassadors to the community and engage in fundraising to provide support for Excela Health Latrobe Hospital and the broader community.

This past year, LAHAS has given $30,000 to the Surgical Institute at Excela Health Latrobe Hospital, along with $5,000 in scholarships to three graduating high school seniors to further their education. The scholarships are awarded based on volunteer hours. This past summer our members helped pack and distribute Westmoreland Food Bank lunches to families with school-age children. We offer encouragement to the Excela Latrobe Hospital staff by donating water, gum, and snacks. They decorate Latrobe Hospital and Excela Square at Latrobe during the Holidays.

The 37th annual Children’s Health Fair for 550 third-grade students from the Latrobe, Derry, and Ligonier area was back after a two-year hiatus during COVID-19 with some brand new stations. We look forward to the LAHAS 35th Annual Lights of Love Light Up Night at Latrobe on December 6, 2022. 

The LAHAS golf committee has already begun planning for Saturday, August 19, 2023, for our third annual golf outing. Please mark your calendars and recruit a foursome to play golf at Glengarry! Thank you for making our mission statement possible. Together we can make a difference in our community.
