It is our honor and privilege to host the 16th Lucas Oil Eric Medlen Memorial Golf Tournament! This year marks an important milestone of the tournament, and our mission remains stronger than ever - to honor Eric by helping the children of Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent. Every year we are overwhelmed by the generous support of our incredible sponsors, golfers and corporate partners. Together, we have been able to donate over $1,300,000 to PMCH and help fund a pediatric MRI suite, the St. Vincent House, a teaching classroom and most recently, Dr. Smith's pediatric neurology research. We are proud of the event’s past contributions to PMCH and are delighted to continue celebrating Eric’s life and supporting a fantastic cause in his memory.
We hope to see you on the course honoring Eric and supporting Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital!
All money raised supports the new women & children's tower at the St. Vincent campus, as well as Dr. Jodi Smith's pediatric neurology research. This 268,000-square-foot six-story tower will include 109 all-private newborn intensive care rooms, allowing mothers and babies to be cared for in the same place.
Eric Medlen (August 13, 1973, Oakdale, CA – March 23, 2007, Gainesville, Florida) Eric Medlen was a dedicated, talented and charismatic young driver seemingly destined for drag racing greatness when, at age 33, his life was cut tragically short by fatal injuries suffered while testing his Funny Car the morning after the 2007 NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway in Florida. Although his death devastated friends, family and fans, it served as a catalyst for change that led to John Force Racing’s development of the “Eric Medlen Chassis,” the first major re-design of the drag racing Funny Car in almost 30 years.
The Pediatric Neurology unit at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent specializes in advanced brain, spine, and nerve care for children and teens. Its pediatric ER is open 24/7 for emergencies, and pediatric neurologists are on call to monitor epilepsy and other neurologic conditions. In addition to world-class pediatric neurology, the hospital also provides pediatric sleep studies, neurosurgical care, neonatal and pediatric intensive care, and specialized rehabilitation therapies for children.
Since 2008, proceeds from the Eric Medlen Memorial Golf Tournament have funded new facilities like the St. Vincent House, a pediatric MRI Suite, a teaching classroom and the new state-of-the-art pediatric neurology hospital.
