Record Observer - - News -

GRA­SONVILLE — Com­pass Re­gional Hospice hosted its an­nual golf tour­na­ment for 18 four­somes on May 16 at Prospect Bay Coun­try Club in Gra­sonville. The event raised more than $23,000, which will be used to pro­vide hospice care and grief sup­port for peo­ple of all ages in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caro­line coun­ties.

The 84 golfers who played in the 2016 Com­pass Re­gional Hospice golf tour­na­ment par­tic­i­pated in many ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing a putting con­test, hole-in-one and clos­est-to-the pin com­pe­ti­tions, and bid­ding on silent auc­tion items. Door prizes were awarded at the clos­ing re­cep­tion.

“As a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, Com­pass Re­gional Hospice re­lies on the fi­nan­cial sup­port of the com­mu­nity to en­sure that we are al­ways here for chil­dren, teens and adults who need us when they have been di­ag­nosed with a life-lim­it­ing ill­ness or grieve the death of a loved one,” said Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Heather Guerieri. “We thank the golfers, spon­sors and vol­un­teers who sup­ported us this year and Prospect Bay Coun­try Club for their ex­pert man­age­ment of the tour­na­ment.”

The gold spon­sor for the Com­pass Re­gional Hospice Golf Tour­na­ment was Wil­liam J. Og­den. Sil­ver spon­sors were Amer­i­can Le­gion Bene­dict A. An­drew Post 296 and Black Dog Pro­pel­lers. The lunch and re­cep­tion spon­sor was Kent Is­land Amer­i­can Le­gion Post 278.
