The 2018 Circulus Golf Tournament on August 28 was a success on all accounts. Amazing weather, a full field of golfers and sponsors and a beautiful golf course made for a wonderful event.
The event has grown in popularity and has supported CHPC’s mission of caring for patients and families battling serious or terminal illness. This was the tenth year the organizers have directed the proceeds to benefit Chautauqua Hospice and Palliative Care.
The tournament attracts golfers and sponsors from around the area including generous participation from regional paving and highway suppliers. This year’s tournament brings the ten-year event total support figure for CHPC to $64,225.
Winners of the first flight were Jon Gren, Dave Bogden, Matt Hartweg and John Krudys, with a score of 59. Second flight winners were Ed Shults, Dave Johnson, Jake Kane, and Jim Greyber with a score of 67.
The tournament is organized each year by Circulus members Phil DeAngelo, Tom Olson, Bucky Lombardo, Ron Pappalardo and Jack Scalise. These five friends, along with many generous sponsors and donors, have established a long-standing event that is one of the most fun and enjoyable in the area.
“It’s an honor to benefit from this event,” said Shauna Anderson, President and CEO of CHPC. “The organizers, sponsors and participants are so generous on our behalf. We’re truly grateful to them all.”
The mission of Chautauqua Hospice and Palliative Care is to provide end of life education and care in Chautauqua County. CHPC provides hospice care for patients and families facing life-limiting terminal illness, as well as palliative care for those with serious chronic illness.
