Golf tourney raises funds for hospice

Playing golf were 30 foursomes for the third annual White Mountain Hospice Foundation Golf Tournament held Saturday, Sept. 21, at Torreon. Players lined up asking to buy raffle tickets, then bid on silent and live auction items, all the while espousing their appreciation to board members for help given to White Mountain hospice patients in need. Though the final numbers are not in, a few of the numbers validate the golfers' and the community's support for hospice: Live auction - $5,880; raffle - $2,345 and a ball drop raffle (a 50/50 raffle) netting $6,250. All of this was possible thanks to the generous retailers and golfers who entered to play, volunteers and Torreon. The foundation paid out $1,562.50 to the closest ball to the hole; $937.50 to second place and $625 to third place. Treasurer Cindi Hosley said this was a successful event.
