Samford's Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing will host its fourth annual Funderburg Lectureship Golf Tournament at Limestone Springs Golf Club in Oneonta, Ala., on Oct. 13. The tournament is sponsored by the Department of Nurse Anesthesia and is part of the Alabama Association of Nurse Anesthetists fall meeting.

The Funderburg Lectureship was established in 2003 in honor of Dr. Lonnie Funderburg, a graduate of the former Howard College, now Samford University. This lectureship continues Dr. Funderburg's commitment to anesthesia education.

The tournament will be held as a four-person scramble with registration and breakfast beginning at 7 a.m. Tee time begins at 8 a.m. followed by awards and lunch at 12:30 p.m. A playing spot starts at $140. All entries must be received by Oct. 6.
