More than 70 golfers raised $15,000 for grieving families.

The nine-hole GOLF “fore” ANGELS tournament supports infant bereavement care fund at Jamestown Regional Medical Center.

ANGELS stands for Advocating for Neonatal Grief and Early Loss Support. Every year, families experience the loss of an infant due to an unexpected circumstance. ANGELS helps pay medical bills for those parents through the JRMC Foundation. The fund is available to anyone who experiences infant loss at JRMC at the gestation of 16 weeks or greater up to 4 months of age due to unavoidable circumstances.

On average, the fund helps two to three families each year.

Dr. Mandy Sorlie, Sanford Health, and her family created the fund in 2015, after a Jamestown area family experienced infant loss in a delivery room at JRMC.

“This is important to my family because we can’t imagine the pain of losing a baby. We want to do anything we can to take the burden off of families going through this,” Dr. Sorlie said. “I look at my three children and I think we are so blessed. I hope this golf tournament teaches them the importance of giving back.”

JRMC is grateful to the Sorlie family for bringing us together in support of families who experience infant loss, said JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson.

“Thank you the Sorlies, the golfers and sponsors for supporting families when they need it most,” she said.

Next year’s ANGELS tournament is set for Saturday, July 30.
