Acorn Classic

Methodist Medical Center Foundation Acorn Classic Golf Tournament logo

The Methodist Medical Center Foundation’s annual Acorn Classic benefits the healthcare programs and services of Methodist Medical Center. Event proceeds this year will support Methodist Medical Center’s Hospitality Houses. At the Houses, patients and their families traveling from long distances for treatment at MMC find free lodging, food, rest and, most of all, companionship for the journey as they deal with stressful times and difficult diagnoses. We are continually challenged to raise the funds to maintain the Houses and to ensure that all of our guests are provided the very best hospitality we can give. Due to demand, we will soon add a third house to be available to patients and their families in times of need. Your support of the Acorn Classic will make it possible for the Houses to continue to serve.

Congratulations to our 2016 Tournament Winners!
