Hole-in-one event aids hospice, grief support
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.
