Steve Williams: We’re with Melissa Aungst, the foundation specialist at The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center. Melissa, thanks for joining us today.

Melissa Aungst: Thanks, Steve, for having me.

Steve Williams: Tell us a little bit about this year’s Mount Nittany Medical Center Golf Classic.

Melissa Aungst: Well, this is the 22nd year of the golf classic and over the past 21 years, the Golf Classic has raised $1.5 million to support the critical programs and equipment purchased at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Steve Williams: What will this year’s Golf Classic support?

Melissa Aungst: This year’s Golf Classic is year five of a pledge that the committee made to benefit the Lance and Ellen Shaner Cancer Pavilion, which is scheduled to open in fall of 2012. And, the Cancer Pavilion will offer top-quality cancer care in State College by providing radiation oncology, medical oncology and examination space. It will house 19 private chemotherapy suites. It will also feature special amenities, including a large resource room for patients and their families, space for integrative services such as rehabilitation and nutritional consultations, waiting areas that are both private and quiet, and also a dedicated pharmacy.

Steve Williams: When and where is this year’s Golf Classic being held?

Melissa Aungst: This year, we’ll again play on Penn State Golf Courses on Saturday, August 18.

Steve Williams: And registration starts at 9:30 – golfers teeing off promptly at 11 a.m. And how can community members get involved with this?

Melissa Aungst: We have sponsorship opportunities, volunteer opportunities and golfer opportunities. We also have some non-golfer opportunities – many ways that people can get involved.

Steve Williams: And where can folks find out and register and learn more about the Golf Classic?

Melissa Aungst: They can call us at The Foundation at area code 814.234.6777. Or they can email us at foundation@mountnittany.org, or visit us at foundation.mountnittany.org.
