LONGVIEW, Wash., November 4, 2015 – On Friday, August 28, more than 60 golfers gathered at Three Rivers Golf Course for the first annual Charity Care Challenge benefiting Community Home Health & Hospice (Community). The event brought in $7,500 for the agency. Participants were able to enjoy 18-holes of golf, unlimited driving range access, specialized player’s gifts, lunch provided by the Shamrock Tavern and an awards dinner.
All proceeds from the event were donated to the charity care program at Community, which provides home health and hospice services for uninsured and underinsured patients, inpatient respite care, telemonitoring, grief support, translation, transportation services, extraordinary care and other support programs. Community spent $679,670 in 2013-2014 on charity care services.
“We are excited to be a part of something that will truly impact our community’s healthcare,” said event co-chair and Fibre Senior Vice President Rick Dahl. Fellow event co-chair Jack Courtney also wants you to know that if you missed out this year, save the date for next year, “Come out and putt for a purpose with us next year on August 26, 2016!”
“The event was a great opportunity to promote awareness about Community’s charity care program and raise funds in a way that’s exciting for everyone involved,” said Community’s Foundation Committee President Joe Amrine.
On behalf of families that these generous donations will support, Community thanks all the participants who came out to support those in need. Community also gives a special thank you to title sponsors Fibre Federal and Red Canoe credit unions, and hole sponsors— Cascade Networks, U.S. Bank, Taco Time, Twin City Bank, Walker Insurance, Steelscape, Inc., Bob’s Sporting Goods, McCord’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep, Affordable Cabinets, Granite and Floors, Lineage, and Dan Rua & Associates.
