WEST PALM BEACH, FL. – Clinics Can Help (CCH) returns to Banyan Cay Resort & Golf Club at 2300 Presidential Way, West Palm Beach, 33401, for its 9th Annual Golf Classic Thursday, October 20. Registration opens at 11 a.m., followed by lunch and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. 

CBS News 12 News Morning Anchor Matt Lincoln will again chair the event featuring an exciting scramble format. Lincoln first got involved with CCH after covering a story about PGA Tour Champion and longtime Honorary Chair Dana Quigley, whose young son Devon was tragically injured in an automobile accident and subsequently benefitted from the services of CCH. 

“Devon’s accident showed how access to medical equipment creates independence and saves lives. I’m honored to serve as Chair again and excited for golfers to see what’s in store,” Lincoln shares, adding that this year’s silent auction will include additional upgraded items for bidding, including an online option that everyone is invited to participate in even if they cannot attend the event in person.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit CCH’s KINDER Project, which supplies families of children with special needs with the medical equipment and supplies they need for their mobility, independence, and dignity. Tickets ($300 each and $1200 foursome) include greens fees, cart, lunch, contests, prizes, silent auction, post-awards reception, a gift bag with a golf umbrella, and a blue or white golf shirt.

CCH CEO Owen O’Neill daily hears about young kids’ struggles with injuries like Devon’s or other illnesses. “Our families always inspire us. The stories we hear each day push us to work even harder to provide equipment to those who need it most. For so many, it enhances their quality of life and provides relief for parents and caregivers. The opportunity to make such a difference in a child’s life while enjoying golf at a beautiful venue like Banyan Cay is perfection,” he said.

Contests throughout the day will be in both men and women’s categories and will provide golfers a chance to take home awards for longest drive, closest to the pin, putting, and the hole-in-one challenge sponsored by AutoNation. The 2022 committee is growing to meet the demands for the popular event, welcoming new members: Rebecca Weiss, Barbara Lilley, Tracy Nash and Kym Cavallo. Returning committee members include Pam Swensen, Jon Levy, Gil Martinez, Sally Chester, Angie Niehoff, Vic Carlucci, Myk Nelson and Nancy Boulter.
