(March 8, 2021) – For the sixth year in a row, 25 teams from throughout the Tennessee Valley will assemble on May 11, 2021 at the Lookout Mountain Club for the Morning Pointe Foundation’s annual Mastering Memory Care golf tournament, presented by First Horizon and Propel Insurance Services, Inc. This will be the first time the tournament has been held since 2019, as the 2020 event was cancelled due to the global pandemic. Since inception, the Morning Pointe Foundation has given out over 60 community college scholarships to further the education of the next generation of nurses in senior care.

Registration for the tournament will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Lookout Mountain Club followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Click here to register your team or renew your sponsorship.

“As our nation and the world starts to return to a sense of normalcy, we are proud to say the Mastering Memory Care golf tournament is officially scheduled,” said Morning Pointe Foundation executive director Audra Hopkins. “This annual spring event is something that we look forward to each year in anticipation of building financial support for nursing students across the Southeast. By highlighting our sponsorship of the most deserving people in our community—hardworking nursing students at places like Chattanooga State, TCAT of Athens, and Columbia State—we will ultimately make our community stronger and ensure a brighter future for our seniors.”

Since the founding of the Morning Pointe Foundation in 2014 by senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow, the philanthropic arm of the Chattanooga-based Morning Pointe Senior Living has provided nursing students with more than $100,000 in scholarship funds. The 501(c)3 non-profit organization has forged partnerships with ten community and technical colleges in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama.

“Watching Chattanooga business and community leaders come together in a spirit of fun and giving is especially poignant because of the impact that COVID-19 and the 2020 tornado has had on so many,” added Morning Pointe Senior Living president Greg A. Vital. “With our city and our industry roaring back from a challenging year, I’m grateful to the Lookout Mountain Club for continuing to host this tournament as the Morning Pointe Foundations seeks to provide much-needed opportunities to nursing students while providing support to caregivers and drawing attention to important senior healthcare issues.”

Since 2018, the Morning Pointe Foundation and Morning Pointe of Athens (TN) have partnered to host a sister Mastering Memory Care golf tournament. This year’s Athens golf tournament will take place at the Ridgewood Golf Course on July 21 at 12:30 p.m.
