The Olean General Hospital Foundation held its eighth annual Golf to Fight Cancer golf tournament May 16 at the Bartlett Country Club.

The event raised $53,000 for cancer care in Olean. Proceeds from the annual event help the hospital purchase breast cancer surgical equipment, endoscopy instruments and equipment at the hospital’s Mildred Milliman Radiation Medicine Center, including upgrades to the linear accelerator which precisely targets cancer cells.

“I’d like to thank everyone who joined us in support of our efforts to enhance our ability to assist cancer patients,” said Timothy J. Finan, president, chief executive officer, Upper Allegheny Health System, OGH, Bradford Regional Medical Center. “We had a tremendous turnout and the funds we raised will allow us to continue our mission of providing best-in-class care to those with this disease.”

“The funds we raised will help further enhance the quality of cancer care in the Olean area,” said Steve Jackson, president, OGH Foundation. “We are thankful for the generous support of our community. The OGH Foundation is blessed to have volunteers and supporters who come together each year for this golf outing.”
