Golf tournament to benefit local hospice
HUNTINGTON -- Hospice of Huntington and Chapman Printing Company are gearing up for their 12th annual "Heating Up the Greens" golf scramble Aug. 18 at Guyan Golf and Country Club in Huntington.
Spots are still available for teams, but space is limited. Contact Hospice of Huntington by Aug. 1 to register. The cost is $1,000 per foursome and includes greens fees, cart, lunch and awards dinner.
Lunch begins at 11 a.m. and tee time is at noon. Prizes will be awarded for women's and men's team standings, as well as individual contests, including longest drive, closest to the pin, putting and more.
Melanie Hall, president and CEO of Hospice of Huntington, said the goal is to have 32 teams.
"We just need a few more teams to reach that goal," Hall said.
"The more teams we have, the better the return is."
All proceeds benefit Hospice of Huntington, a nonprofit community based agency that uses an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, home-health aides, social workers, volunteers and clergy to provide care designed to relieve physical discomfort and emotional stress for terminally-ill patients and their families. Hall said proceeds will go toward offsetting the cost of services for families who can't afford the care.
"It's a great way for people to come out, learn a little bit more about Hospice of Huntington and have a good time," Hall said.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. To register a team or purchase a tee sign, contact Alisha Jenkins at 304-529-4217 or visit hospiceofhuntington.org.
