The Bob Kesling and Bert Bertelkamp Golf Tournament presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee will be held on Monday, June 7 at Holston Hills Country Club in Knoxville. The annual golf tournament raises money for the McNabb Center, which provides access to behavioral health care for individuals and families with the most need in East Tennessee. The golf tournament is a longstanding Center tradition, lasting more than 20 years.

“Our mission is to support the health and well-being of the 3.4 million members we serve – and to work to improve quality of life for all our state’s residents through our corporate giving and community support,” said John Maki, Vice President of Sales and Account Management for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee. “We’re honored to support the McNabb Center as they help our neighbors facing mental health, addiction and social challenges.”

“Our goal each year with the golf event is to raise as much money as possible to support the great work of the McNabb Center,” said Bert Bertelkamp. “The Center provides services that are vital to the overall health of our community. We are fortunate to have the support of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and many others who recognize the positive impact the McNabb Center has on so many lives.”

There is still time to sponsor the tournament and receive recognition at the event. For additional questions, contact Beth Farrow at, (865) 329-9030 or visit
