For the seventh consecutive year the Circulus Men’s Club Golf Tournament has provided generous financial support for Hospice Chautauqua County. This year’s competition at Moon Brook Country Club raised $7,500 for the provider of end-of-life care and education.

The August 25th event was a sell-out with 32 four-person teams competing in the “Scramble” format tournament.  Over 60 corporate sponsors and area businesses contributed to make the event a success.

Since its inception the annual event has raised a total of $40,725.32 for Hospice.

“Chautauqua Hospice & Palliative Care has touched so many lives of people in our community, including members of our organization”, said Tournament Chair Tom Olson. “It’s hard to put into words how important the care and support are that Hospice provides when a family is so vulnerable. It’s an honor to support their work.”

“These businesses, sponsors and volunteers come together in a remarkable way for the benefit of our organization,” said Ron Sellers, President and CEO of Chautauqua Hospice & Palliative Care. “Besides being one of the best organized and enjoyable golf outings, it taps into a ground-swell of support and enthusiasm that reminds us we are on the right track.”

Hospice Chautauqua County specializes in care and services for patients and their families in the community who are dealing with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. Their team-based approach attempts help those individuals live to the fullest extent possible until the end of life.
