Why support the tournament:

The Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation has an exciting new event coming to Sevierville and you are invited to join us. My name is Elizabeth Essary and I am the development manager at the Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation. I am honored to be working with the foundation’s board of directors to raise funds to improve the health of our community.

We are thrilled to announce that our foundation’s inaugural Smoke on the Mountain Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, August 30, 2021, at Sevierville Golf Club. Proceeds from this event and other Dr. Thomas Foundation fundraising efforts will provide our community and LeConte Medical Center with support for:

  • Free mammograms and breast cancer education through the foundation’s Paint the Mountains Pink fund
  • Specialized equipment to monitor babies with jaundice while at LeConte Medical Center
  • Educational materials to help new parents learn the best ways to care for their newborn after they leave the hospital
  • Enhanced therapy treatments for patients so they won’t have to travel to another city for care

Covenant Health’s LeConte Medical Center is a full-service, not-for-profit hospital delivering modern medical care and compassionate treatment to the growing Sevier County community. We hope that you will consider partnering with us as we strive to grow our mission to improve the quality of life through better health.

If you have any questions or interest in making a pledge or volunteering opportunities at the tournament, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (865) 446-9627 or eessary@covhlth.com. Thank you for your consideration.


Warmest regards,
