Last year's Walgreens golf tournament raised more than $30,000 for the UNM Children's Hospital. "Every year, Walgreens' leadership, community leaders and volunteers come together to help UNM Children's Hospital," said Rich Grainger, associate director of Development, UNM Children's Hospital. "Whether it is answering phones for Radiothon, collecting toys during the holidays or fundraising year around, the Walgreens family is there to support their community."
After this year's golf tournament, Walgreens will also be hosting a bowling tournament on Aug. 18 to raise funds. If that isn't enough, starting in September, Walgreens stores across the state will be selling UNM Children's Hospital balloon icons to support the more that 60,000 children helped every year.
Come out and support the UNM Children's Hospital and New Mexico's smallest patients.
