Seekonk family honored at Charity Golf Tournament
The 6th Annual UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) Golf Tournament – held at the Lake of Isles Golf Club & Resort in Connecticut – helped raise more than $90,000 for UHCCF’s child medical grant program.
During yesterday’s event, UHCCF honored nine-year-old Seekonk native Juliet Provost and her family. The Provosts were awarded a UHCCF medical grant last year when Juliet was diagnosed with acute rheumatic fever. The funds helped pay for Juliet’s travel expenses to visit her cardiologist.
Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded more than 14,000 grants valued at over $38 million to children and their families across the United States, and aims to surpass 20,000 grants by 2020. In Massachusetts, 74 grants worth more than $210,000 have been awarded since 2011. UHCCF is encouraging more local families to apply this year.
Parents or legal guardians are encouraged to apply for a UHCCF child medical grant today at www.UHCCF.org.
