Compass Regional Hospice invites golfers to join them on the greens for the 23rd Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for Monday, October 19 at Prospect Bay Country Club in Grasonville. Proceeds from the golf tournament enable Compass Regional Hospice to continue to provide professional and compassionate end-of-life care and grief support to the residents of Caroline, Kent, and Queen Anne’s counties.
Josh Bullock of Bullock Construction is Chair of this year’s tournament. Golfers will play the 18-hole, par 72 course. The entry fee is $125 per golfer. Foursomes and individual golfers are welcome. Tournament participants will also enjoy a variety of competitions and games in addition to the 18-holes of play.
On the day of the tournament registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9:00 a.m. Refreshments will be available on the course. After play, the golfers are invited back to the club house for lunch and an awards ceremony.
This year, a generous donor has agreed to match up to $15,000 in donations. Members of the community who are not golfers and golfers who want to do more to support Compass Regional Hospice can sign on as tournament sponsors or make a direct donation. “Sponsorship opportunities come with a variety of benefits, and we have sponsorship opportunities ranging from $300 to $5,000,” explains Kenda Leager, Development Officer for Compass Regional Hospice.
“We are so thankful for the continued support of our golfers and sponsors who make this annual event successful! Because of these community members, we are able to continue to offer programs that are not reimbursed from other sources,” says Heather Guerieri, Chief Executive Officer for Compass Regional Hospice.
