16th Annual Golf Tournament

Blue Valley Lutheran Homes Annual Golf Tournament

On August 21st, 2020, the Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes (BVLH) in Hebron, NE will be hosting its 16th Annual Golf Tournament at the Hebron Country Club.

The Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes Logo

BVLH is a non-profit long-term care campus that serves several different populations: individuals needing rehabilitation services, the developmentally disabled, those with Alzheimer’s, individuals needing short or long-term nursing care or those ready for a little extra help in Assisted Living.  The Foundation and their fundraising efforts make it possible for our residents and staff to enjoy the “extras” beyond the basics that daily operation funds provide.  Some of our residents don’t have family or friends who provide for them so the work of the Foundation is vital for their care and comfort.

Fees are $240 for a four person team, which includes coffee and rolls, boxed lunch and a grilled burger meal for supper.  Team check-in begins at 8:00 am and teams will tee-off at 9:00 am.  Space is limited to 24 teams, so early payment of your entry fee will secure your team’s participation.  Entry forms are due by August 4th.

There are ways to participate even if you don’t golf.  We welcome you sponsoring or participating in one or all of these ways:

  1. Have or Sponsor a Team – We are accepting only 24 teams, so register early!
  2. Tournament Sponsors – All tournament sponsors will be listed on printed materials and we’ll post your business on our website as a 2017 Golf Tournament Sponsor ( There are various levels of sponsorship, see the entry form for more details.
  3. Tournament Gift Bag Items – Each golfer gets a favor bag. Gifts can be golf balls, tees, koozies, mugs, towels, hats, notepads, pens, etc.  It’s a great way to advertise your business!
  4. Food & Drink Donations – It’s as simple as providing water, sport drinks, juice bottles, items for grab-and-go breakfast or boxed lunch.

See our past years proceeds were used to purchase a handicap accessible golf cart to assist in transporting residents to appointments as well as to get residents out of the facilities and into the community.  The golf cart allows residents to see sights around town, give residents the opportunity to get additional sunshine and fresh air as well as provide a safe and easy method of transport to and from appointments.  Thank you for helping make this happen!

Handicap Accessible Golf Cart

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact us.  We thank you for your past support of BVLH and appreciate all the ways you continue to support us – through donations, volunteerism, or prayers.
