Record Observer - - Senior Satellite -

CHESTERTOWN — On Thurs­day, Sept. 14, Phyl­lis Brown of Chestertown hosted a hole-in-one event in mem­ory of her mother, Mary Jean Hud­son, at the Ch­ester River Yacht and Coun­try Club in Chestertown.

The event raised more than $800 for hos­pice care and grief sup­port of­fered through Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice and the Hope and Heal­ing Cen­ter.

Brown wanted to carry on the hole-in-one event her mother hosted to ben­e­fit hos­pice 10 years prior. Golfers par­tic­i­pated in holein-one, clos­est-to-the-pin, clos­est-to-the-water and clos­est-to-the-ruff com­pe­ti­tions.

Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice is the sole provider of hos­pice care and grief sup­port in Caro­line, Kent and Queen Anne’s coun­ties. Grief sup­port is of­fered through the Hope and Heal­ing Cen­ter, a col­lec­tion of pro­grams and ser vices avail­able for the fam­ily of pa­tients who died un­der Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice’s care and mem­bers of the community who are griev­ing the death of a loved one.

As a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice re­lies on fi­nan­cial sup­port from the community to pro­vide ser­vices not cov­ered by Medi­care, Med­i­caid and pri­vate in­sur­ance, in­clud­ing room and board at its hos­pice cen­ters, grief sup­port ser­vices of­fered through the Hope and Heal­ing Cen­ter and other pa­tient sup­port ser­vices, such as the Bridges pro­gram.

Community events are a way to show sup­port of the lo­cal community and to help raise the much-needed funds.
