Samaritan Scramble Raises Over $146,000 for Patient Support Program

Since the first Samaritan Scramble golf tournament in 2014, the event has raised over $1.3 million to support various services such as Sarah’s Place, mental health, Veteran’s Outreach, Samaritan Early Learning Center and Samaritan Treatment and Recovery Services.

The tournament is hosted by Samaritan Foundations, and funds raised are shared among the five Samaritan hospital foundations in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.

This year’s event on Thursday, June 6, drew over 100 players to the Corvallis Country Club. The golf tournament raised $146,090 for the Samaritan Foundations Patient Support Program.

The Patient Support Program provides funding assistance for patients in need to promote equal access to care and facilitate safe hospital discharge. In 2023, more than 1,440 patients were assisted through the program with expenses such as medical bills, transportation, prescriptions, nutritional supplements and groceries.

“The Samaritan Scramble was a great success thanks to all the incredible sponsors and participants who came together to show their support,” said Taylor Gilmour, vice president of Samaritan Foundations. “The impact of their contributions is far reaching. The funds raised through this event will help more than 1,000 people in need throughout our region, while eliminating barriers to health and provide healing for individuals and families. All of this strengthens the overall health of our communities. The five Samaritan Foundations are grateful to everyone who has played a role in the success of this event over the years and in the years to come.”

Samaritan Foundations would like to thank the participants and sponsors who helped make this year’s event a success:

  • Presenting sponsor – Gallagher Insurance.
  • Platinum sponsors – GBC Construction and Vizient.
  • Gold sponsor – Genentech and Skanska.
  • Silver sponsor – Hub International and KeyBank.
  • And, 23 additional individual and business sponsors.
