Record Observer - - Senior Satellite -

GRASONVILLE — Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice in­vites golfers who are ready for a spring out­ing to tee off at the 19th an­nual golf tour­na­ment sched­uled for Mon­day, May 16, at Prospect Bay Coun­try Club in Grasonville. Golfers can choose to play the nine-hole or the 18-hole cour­ses.

The en­try fee for this Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice fundraiser is $125 per golfer for the 18-hole round and $75 per golfer for the nine-hole round. Four­somes and in­di­vid­ual golfers are wel­come.

On the day of the tour­na­ment, reg­is­tra­tion be­gins at 11 a.m. A light lunch will be served be­fore the shot­gun start at 1 p.m. Re­fresh­ments will be avail­able on the course. Af­ter play, the golfers are in­vited back to the club house for ap­pe­tiz­ers and an awards re­cep­tion.

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.

“We have spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties rang­ing from $100 to $5,000,” said Kenda Lea­ger, de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer for Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice. “All pro­ceeds from this year’s golf tour­na­ment en­able Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice to of­fer pro­fes­sional and com­pas­sion­ate care for peo­ple liv­ing with a life-lim­it­ing ill­ness. Ad­di­tion­ally, the sup­port of our golfers and spon­sors al­lows us to con­tinue to of­fer pro­grams that are not re­im­bursed from other sources such as our grief coun­sel­ing and Bridges, our pre­hos­pice pro­gram for peo­ple who have been di­ag­nosed with a life-lim­it­ing ill­ness and are not yet ready for hos­pice.”
