Southeastern Sports Medicine was the presenting sponsor of this year’s Golf Classic, just one of 54 sponsors that included Eagle Sponsors Beystone Health & Rehabilitation and Park Ridge Geriatrics. Birdie Sponsors of this year’s event were AGFA Healthcare; Bowers, Ellis & Watson, Architects; Carolina Adventist Retirement Systems, Inc.; Dr. Eileen Keppler and Family; Mountain Home Care, LLC; North American Credit Services, Inc.; and Park Ridge Anesthesiology Services, PA.
