Bear Rinehart of award-winning South Carolina rock band NEEDTOBREATHE and OneWorld Health Executive Director Michael O’Neal appeared this morning on NBC Golf Channel’s Morning Drive, Quick 9, and Golf Channel Podcast to announce the date of the 2018 NEEDTOBREATHE Classic.
The annual charity event, started by Commonwealth Cares Foundation, has raised more than $1 million for OneWorld Health on a mission to bring sustainable quality healthcare to developing communities in Central America and Africa. The sixth annual NEEDTOBREATHE Classic will take place once again at the Daniel Island Club on April 23, 2018.
“Partnering with NEEDTOBREATHE on this annual golf tournament has allowed us to elevate the work of OneWorld Health in bringing life-saving medical care to populations in need,” said Britt Gilbert, founder of Commonwealth Cares Foundation, the charitable arm of Commonwealth Financial Group. “Each year we are truly in awe of the athletes and musicians who gather on Daniel Island to not only enjoy a day of golf and an evening of music, but also to join in our passion for OneWorld Health and its global health care mission.”
Michael O’Neal, executive director of OneWorld Health, said, “We are incredibly thankful for NEEDTOBREATHE and Commonwealth Cares Foundation and their continued support of our efforts to provide quality, affordable care to communities in need. Both organizations are led and filled with committed, passionate folks that understand the urgency of making health care more accessible to communities in need.
“Through our partnership we have been able to implement new medical facilities that can now meet the most basic healthcare needs, paving the way for sustainable care and improved quality of life,” O’Neal said.
