Orthopaedic Institute for Children's "Swing for Kids" Golf Classic Set for Sept. 17 at Palos Verdes Golf Club


Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) has announced that its annual
"Swing for Kids Golf Classic" will be held Sept. 17 at the beautiful
Palos Verdes Golf Club. Proceeds will support OIC's "2020:
A Vision for Our Future
" campaign and help fund the creation of new
medical pavilion, urgent care center, research laboratories and
education facilities on OIC's downtown Los Angeles campus.

"Each year OIC receives nearly 70,000 patient visits of children with
musculoskeletal disorders and cares for these kids regardless of their
ability to pay," said OIC Golf Classic Chair Dan Madden. "By supporting
events such as the Swing for Kids Golf Classic, you help make certain
our ability to provide this amazing service and ensure that all children
with orthopaedic conditions have a future where they can grow well and
play well."

The centerpiece to OIC's "A Vision for Our Future" campaign will be a
major reconstruction to transform the Lowman Building into a
state-of-the-art medical pavilion. Inside this new pavilion will be the
largest pediatric orthopaedic urgent care center in the United States
that will include a new fracture clinic, physical therapy center,
research laboratories, pharmacy, radiology center and lecture hall. This
transformation will help ensure that OIC's expert surgeons, doctors and
nurses have the best facilities and equipment to care for the increasing
numbers of children who come through its doors.

The 2018 Swing for Kids Golf Classic has been generously supported by
presenting sponsors, Swapchain and the Roopal and Bharati Shah family.
Various other levels of sponsorship are still available as well as slots
for individual golfers who will play the beautiful course and be treated
to a reception, silent auction and unique culinary dining experience
that evening featuring many of Los Angeles' top mixologists.
