Ohio’s Hospice of Central Ohio began with a small group of visionaries giving their time…
Ohio’s Hospice of Central Ohio’s 25th Annual Golf Outing raised more than $45,000 for patient care and services on June 17 at The Links at Echo Springs in Johnstown, Ohio. Along with a round of golf, the event included lunch, hole competitions, snacks, and awards to close the day.
“This was our 25th annual Ohio’s Hospice of Central Ohio golf outing,” said Stacy Geller, vice president of philanthropic development at Ohio’s Hospice of Central Ohio. “We appreciate the 120 golfers, numerous volunteers and generous sponsors who made this event possible. We have enjoyed community support over the years, but the outpouring of enthusiasm and camaraderie seemed to be in high gear as we gathered on that beautiful June day.”
