COMMUNITY BANK ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT TO BENEFIT HOSPICE TO BE HELD JUNE 18th
Community Bank, N.A. is celebrating a major milestone as their annual golf tournament approaches on Friday, June 18th. This will mark the 50th year of charitable giving through this event. Since 1995, Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley has been the beneficiary of the tournament proceeds and that tradition will continue this year.
Longtime tournament Chair, David Peggs continues in his role, even after retiring as the Canton Branch Manager. The dedicated tournament committee also includes Randy Pray, Brenda Rand, Gina Boyd, Dori Warren, and Sherry Stone. Activities the day of the tournament are carried out by a team of volunteers from various Community Bank branches around St. Lawrence County.
“The committee couldn’t be prouder of this achievement. This golf tournament is just one example of the many ways Community Bank gives back, supporting programs and services that are important to all who live here,” Mr. Peggs remarked. “We are truly appreciative for the sustained commitment that our players and corporate sponsors make each year in helping us raise much needed funding for the invaluable services Hospice provides. Their generous support allows Hospice to continue to provide special care for seriously ill patients and their families.”
“Hospice would like to congratulate the many individuals who have made this tournament a success over the last 50 years. We are honored to have been selected as the beneficiary for more than half of those years,” said Kellie Hitchman, Director of Development and Community Relations for Hospice. “The committee and volunteers do a fantastic job each year organizing the tournament. We are grateful for the Bank’s dedicated support, as well as the generous support of the golfers and sponsors.”
As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continued to be felt in June of 2020, the committee made the difficult decision not to host the annual tournament. Knowing the cancellation of the event would mean a deficit in support raised for Hospice, many sponsors continued with their traditional donation. In addition, Community Bank provided a significant gift to Hospice in lieu of hosting the tournament.
“The support, not only from our sponsors, but also Community Bank in a time that was challenging for so many is a prime example of the relationships created by this tournament. We are thrilled to be returning to the course this year. We have missed the volunteers, golfers and sponsors we have grown accustomed to seeing each year. A heart-felt thank you to all of them is long overdue,” said Ms. Hitchman.
The day features a 11 a.m. shotgun start with dinner and awards immediately following play. The $85 per person or $340 team entry fee includes prizes, greens fees, cart and dinner. Flights for the captain and crew format will be determined by the combined team handicap, and there will be prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin, along with a hole-in-one giveaway sponsored by TJ Toyota.
For more information on playing in the tournament or sponsorship opportunities, contact Kellie Hitchman at Hospice at 315-265-3105. All tournament proceeds will support the work of Hospice in our community.
It’s that time of year again; as crisp, cool nights melt into warm sunny days, we can be sure spring is on the way for the North Country. The changing of the season brings great excitement as we begin planning our popular gourmet brunch event.
