Billings Clinic Classic
Since 1983, the Classic has been the premier fundraising event for Billings Clinic, raising millions of dollars over the years in support of advancing health care excellence. From the beginning, the Classic has capped off a week of fun-filled and good-natured sport rivalry with a spectacular evening of fabulous entertainment, food and friends.
For the last 20 years, Billings Clinic and an army of volunteers have lit up Broadway Avenue in the heart of downtown Billings with thousands of twinkle lights in over 30 tents as over 1,350 guests are entertained by well-known stars of country and pop.

The Classic Cause
In a mosaic, each piece of glass or stone has its own simple beauty, yet when arranged together, extraordinary works of art result. Each day, Billings Clinic creates its own unique and complex mosaic as our 4,200 employees, in over 650 distinctly different roles, come together to provide outstanding care to our patients and their families. The 2017 Classic is a celebration of our remarkable team and supports our staff’s shared vision of providing exceptional care, safety, service and value to every patient who passes through our doors.
The constant pursuit of care excellence fuels Billing’s Clinic’s drive toward continuous improvement. A critical aspect of achieving high quality patient care and safety is the ongoing education of our staff. This is no simple feat given the rapid innovation and complexity in health care today.
Back in 1950, medical knowledge only doubled every 50 years. In 2010, the doubling time had increased to an astonishing 3.5 years lacing unprecedented demand on caregivers to stay current with best practice. This, combined with our large and diverse workforce, the high cost of travel, and the fiscal uncertainties facing health care organizations, makes funding staff education increasingly difficult.
One of the most significant investments Billings Clinic can make is supporting our staff members in realizing their individual potential and shared goals. This year’s Classic will focus on providing greater educational opportunities through building the Friends of Nursing Endowment.
This fund, available to all staff, from nursing to bioengineering, will support the pursuit of excellence by: increasing continuing education opportunities at the national level, bringing renowned experts in health care to lecture at Billings Clinic for the benefit of the entire regional health care community, and support innovative research to discover new and better ways to care for our patients.
