Bryan NICU Benefits from Git-R-Done Golf Classic
The fourth annual Git-R-Done Golf Classic raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for children’s and veteran’s charities across the country. The lead gift provides funding for seizure monitoring technology in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Bryan Health.
“The Git-R-Done Foundation has been a great friend to Bryan. More important, they’ve been an even better friend to our littlest patients in the NICU," said Bob Ravenscroft, vice president for Advancement at Bryan Health. "We are truly grateful that the Git-R-Done Foundation is supporting Bryan Health again this year."
The Git-R-Done Foundation’s lead gift provides funding for Cerebral Function Monitors. Infant seizures are often hidden and difficult to detect. This technology allows doctors and nurses to capture minor seizures immediately. Seizures diagnosed and treated early can prevent long-term mental and physical injuries. This donation allows the NICU at Bryan Health to provide the most accurate brain monitoring for early seizure detection.
Bryan Health has been the lead beneficiary of proceeds from the Git-R-Done Golf Classic for the last three years. This partnership helped Bryan build a NICU Rooftop Healing Garden and install Angel Eye Camera Systems in every room. Those two projects have provided comfort and reassurance to patients and their families.
The Git-R-Done Golf Classic was hosted by comedian Larry the Cable Guy. The two-day event took place in late June at Yankee Hill Country Club in Lincoln. The festivities combined fun, laughter and golf to raise $265,000 for charity. The event also brought several celebrities to the Capital City. Super Bowl Champion Joe Theismann, World Series Champion David Wells and country music star Colt Ford were just a few of the big names who attended.
Said Larry the Cable Guy, “I was so bad, my caddie was throwing my clubs! Seriously, though, I was so excited to have celebrities and sponsors from across the country right here in Nebraska to join us for such a great cause!”
