Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Reaches Miracle Maker Level with Sacred Heart Foundation
Posted: 3/17/2008

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. – Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort recently pledged over $166,000 to the Heart and Vascular Campaign at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. Since 1999, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has contributed over $1 million to Sacred Heart Foundation, reaching the Miracle Maker level within the Foundation’s prestigious Order of the Cornette donor recognition society.

“Sandestin is honored to provide moral and financial support for Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast,” said Mike Stange, senior vice president of Intrawest Hospitality Management and president of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. “We certainly believe in the hospital and look forward to a long-term relationship.”

The relationship began when the resort hosted the first press conference where St. Joe Company and Sacred Heart Health System announced the plans to bring comprehensive healthcare to our community. Sandestin and the Sandestin Owners Association then generated over 1500 signatures of support for the hospital during the grassroots campaign in addition to hosting a public forum in Feb. 2000 to invite the whole community to join the effort.

“As a hospital CEO in this region for many years, I can clearly remember how much Sandestin helped facilitate the groundbreaking of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast,” said Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. “Their support in creating a special community with access to high quality healthcare has not waned since the beginning.”

Sandestin has supported each capital fundraising campaign for the hospital to date, including the initial $20 million campaign to build the hospital and the $5 million campaign to add comprehensive women’s services with the additions of the Family Birth Place and the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center. Most recently, the resort pledged over $166,000 in financial support of the current $5 million capital campaign to expand heart and vascular services at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. This pledge qualifies for a dollar to dollar match from a Matching Challenge Grant that was awarded to Sacred Heart Foundation earlier this year.

This April, Sandestin will host Sacred Heart Foundation’s primary fundraising event at Burnt Pine Golf Club – the Sacred Heart Charity Golf Classic – for the fourth year. The annual Sandestin Triathlon has also benefited the hospital for five years now. In addition, countless gift-in-kind donations have been made to the Foundation through the years in support of fundraisers for both Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast, Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital and Sacred Heart’s Miracle Camp.
