Third Annual Hearts for Sparks Golf Classic Set for Saturday

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) Paul L. Foster School of Medicine (PLFSOM) will hold its third annual Hearts for Sparks Golf Classic to benefit the Medical Student Run Clinic (MSRC) located in the community of Sparks.

Started in 2013 by PLFSOM students, the clinic operates twice a month on Tuesday evenings in the Sparks community.

Located in far east El Paso county, Sparks is home to residents who lack health insurance and sometimes cannot afford a trip to a doctor; 43 percent of its residents live below the U.S. poverty line, according to U.S. Census data.

The MSRC provides free primary health care screenings, such as diagnostics, blood work and patient education. Run entirely by students with faculty oversight, the clinic not only benefits the Sparks community, but gives students real-life opportunities to hone their medical and Spanish language skills.

Proceeds from the Hearts for Sparks Golf Classic event will go directly toward funding for the MSRC.

Participants will receive lunch and dinner, unlimited range balls, a goodie bag, and 18 holes of golf.

What: Hearts for Sparks Golf Classic

When: 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19 (shotgun start)

Where: Butterfield Trail Golf Club (1858 Cottonwoods)
