Compass Regional Hospice plans golf tournament
CENTREVILLE — Compass Regional Hospice invites golfers to join the 20th annual golf tournament scheduled for Monday, May 15, 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.
Golfers will play the 18-hole, par 72 course. The entry fee is $125 per golfer. Foursomes and individual golfers are welcome.
Tournament participants also will enjoy a variety of competitions in addition to the 18-holes of play. Activities include men’s and women’s longest-drive competition, men’s and women’s closest-to-the-pin competition, a hole-in-one competition and a putting competition.
On the day of the tournament, registration will begin 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 clubhouse 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 may sign on as tournament sponsors.
“We have sponsorship opportunities ranging from $200 to $5,000,” said Kenda Leager, development officer for Compass Regional Hospice.
“Thanks to the support of our golfers and sponsors, who make this annual event successful, we are able to continue to offer programs that are not reimbursed from other sources,” said Heather Guereri, executive director for Compass Regional Hospice.
“Over the last 20 years, the annual Compass Regional Hospice Golf Tournament has become a fun way for the community to get involved in supporting hospice care and grief support, and we are looking forward to this year’s tournament.”
