Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare raised more than $30,000 for patient care and services at its inaugural Golf Classic on Aug. 26 at The Pines Golf Club in Orrville, Ohio.
Beautiful weather greeted nearly 90 players and sponsors. The day included golf, lunch, dinner, drinks, and games of chance to support Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare’s mission.
“We are grateful for the overwhelming support of our inaugural Golf Classic,” said Katherine Ritchie, development director at Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare. “As we celebrate 40 years of serving the community, events like these allow us to continue to serve our neighbors and community when they need our care.”
The winning teams were Park National Bank, Roberts Funeral Home, and Ohio Outdoor.
Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare would like to thank the sponsors of the event. Gold sponsors were Amera Wood Products, Charm Builders, and Netsmart. Silver sponsors were Kevin Plank and Beverly Davis and Pomerene Hospital. Beverage cart sponsors were Wooster Color Point and McElroy Packaging. Lunch sponsors were Dave’s Plumbing.

- Provide superior care and superior services to anyone in the community facing end-of-life illnesses, regardless of ability to pay.
