Golf for a cause, support hospice care

Riverwood Healthcare Center and Riverwood Foundation are hosting Holes fore Hospice, a charity event golf tournament and lunch, on Fri., July 14, at Cuyuna Rolling Hills Golf Course in Deerwood.

Holes fore Hospice is an annual fundraising event that supports hospice care and palliative programming for patients and families who are facing terminal illness. Providing quality end-of-life care is an essential, meaningful and highly emotional component of a hospice program. The ultimate goal of hospice care is to offer support and care to maximize independence and comfort during the end-of-life stage.

This year’s charity event will feature registration at 10 a.m., lunch at 11a.m. with a shotgun start for the tournament at 12 p.m. For those who cannot participate, donations to Riverwood Foundation for local hospice care are welcome.

“This annual charity event does a terrific job of raising funds for local hospice care,” says Katie Nelson, Riverwood Foundation Director.  “For participants, this is an opportunity to support a cause you care about while pursuing a sport you enjoy. We appreciate all the great sponsorship support we get from our local communities.”
