The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and Four Winds Casino recently announced that the proceeds from its 2019 Four Winds Invitational Golf Tournament will be utilized to purchase pediatric eye imaging equipment for Beacon Children’s Hospital.  The imaging equipment allows doctors to examine premature and new-born infants to establish baselines for future eye health.

“To have this sophisticated technology in our facility will save parents and physicians untold amounts of stress by providing them with concrete information regarding the diagnosis and progression of their child’s ocular disease,” said Larry Tracy, President of Beacon Children’s Hospital. “Year after year, the Pokagon Band and Four Winds Casinos have put the health of children and adults of our region first. They support our mission to provide the best possible healing environment for our young patients and their families. We are grateful to the Pokagon Band, Four Winds Casinos, Blackthorn and all of the sponsors of the Four Winds Invitational whose efforts make all of this possible.”

Matthew Wesaw, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians added: “As a nation the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians are committed to the health and well-being of not just our own citizens, but to the health of the communities in which we live.  We share the core value with Beacon. It’s why we’re humbled to be in a position to support Beacon Health System through the Four Winds Invitational.”  Frank Freedman, Chief Operating Office of Four Winds Casino stated: “We are proud of the continued partnership we have with Beacon Health System.  It’s an honor to help develop projects and services that give back to the community in such an important way.”

The 2019 Four Winds Invitational will be held Friday June 7 through Sunday June 9 at Blackthorn Golf Club in South Bend and is part of the Symetra Tour –Road to the LPGA.  More information can be found at fourwindsinvitational.com.  Previous proceeds from the Four Winds Invitational have supported projects at Beacon Health Center, including the construction of a new Trauma Center for the General Pediatrics Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Newborn Intensive Care unit, and Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic.  Proceeds have also been used to fund two patient power-load systems for emergency pediatric transport as well as portable radios for use during MedFlight transfer.
