More than $30K raised at Hospice golf tournament

Hospice of Stanly recently hosted the 17th annual golf tournament at The Tillery Tradition Country Club. The event included 18 holes of golf, contests, prizes, a raffle and food. Proceeds will benefit Hospice of Stanly & the Uwharrrie.

A team from Pinnacle Financial Partners in Albemarle was the first-place team. The team from Clint Miller Exterminating scored second place, while Uwharrie Bank was the third-place team. The field was quite competitive, as 22 teams were in the tournament.

“Pinnacle Bank was very proud to support Hospice of Stanly and the care they provide here in the community,” Pinnacle Financial Partners Senior Vice President David Smith said.

The event raised nearly $32,000 for the organization.

“We certainly thank our participants and sponsors for their support,” Hospice Executive Director Lori Thayer said. “The income from our fundraising events is used to support our programs that deliver quality care for our patients and their families.”
