2019 McDaniels Golf Classic


McDaniels Golf Classic


Ft. Jackson Golf Club


April 26, 2019

The McDaniels Golf Classic is a charity golf tournament and fundraiser benefiting the Lexington Medical Center Foundation and its Campaign for Clarity.

The Campaign for Clarity is a $3 million capital campaign dedicated to bringing 3-D mammography to every patient at Lexington Medical Center. This revolutionary, new technology helps detect breast cancer earlier and more accurately than traditional 2-D mammography. Proceeds from the McDaniels Golf Classic Auction and Tournament will make 3-D mammography available throughout Lexington Medical Center’s network of care.

Thank you for supporting this important lifesaving campaign.
