$42,000 Raised at 25th Hospice Memorial Golf Tournament
On Friday, June 11, 2021, celebrated the 25th year of its annual golf tournament. 144 golfers participated in an 18-hole golf scramble at the Country Club of Barre to raise money for CVHHH’s Hospice program.
“The air was filled with excitement and a feeling of gratitude as teams gathered to enjoy a day of golf while supporting a program they truly believe in. It was heartening to hear personal stories and praise for the work we do in Central Vermont. Thank you to our generous sponsors, donors, volunteers, and golfers for your continued support and for making this celebratory year a success!”
Golfers enjoyed a variety of competitions including Closest to the Pin, Speed Hole, Beat the Pro, and String it Out. Participants in the online auction bid to win a selection of items generously donated by event supporters. Prizes included foursomes of golf at Vermont’s premier courses like The Mountain Course at Stowe Mountain Resort and the Country Club of Vermont, among others; original art and photography; dinner out and food gift baskets, plus gift cards for car detailing, and more.
CVHHH would like to recognize this year’s top sponsors, which include Tournament Sponsor Maple Capital Management; Golf Cart Sponsor Vermont Lazerwash; Hospice Memorial Sponsor Jeremy Drown & Family, in loving memory of Barry Chouinard; Hospice Telehealth Sponsor Vermont State Employees Credit Union; and Hole-in-One Sponsor Cody Chevrolet Cadillac. This event was planned with support from a dedicated volunteer planning committee, whose members include Larry Abrams, Dan Armstrong, Jeremy Drown, Judy Guild, Joshua Mallery, and Ed Rousse.
Hospice provides comfort and support for individuals as they near the end of life. Care is provided by an interdisciplinary team and includes expert medical treatment, pain and symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support centered on meeting the needs of patients and their families. Hospice care is available wherever a person resides—at home, in a nursing home, or in an assisted-living facility.
The goal of hospice is to help individuals achieve the highest-possible quality of life, even as death nears. Care is patient-centered and guided by an individual’s unique wishes and goals. As a result, individuals and their families can focus on what matters most to them.
The Memorial Golf Tournament was started in 1996 by friends and family of central Vermonter Scott Freeman. Over the past 25 years, it has grown into a celebratory day- long event that helps raise awareness and funds for hospice at CVHHH.
