LYNN – All Care VNA & Hospice announced that its 26th Annual Charity Golf Open held on June 25th at Gannon Golf Course, Lynn, MA was a tremendous success, thanks to the involvement of many members of the community. Over $50,000 was raised from the event, which will benefit All Care Hospice patients by providing compassionate medical, emotional and spiritual care, regardless of one’s ability to pay. Personalized bereavement support is provided to families, in addition to support groups available to the community at the All Care Hospice Center for Grief & Loss, located at the agency’s main headquarters at 210 Market Street in Lynn.


“A little rain definitely didn’t dampen the spirits of our golfers who ‘made their mark’ for All Care Hospice,” notes Julie Manninen, All Care’s Manager of Development and Fundraising. “We were excited that this year’s event was very well attended, with many new golfers joining us for the first time!  We were also grateful for the loyal support of many of our returning sponsors as well. We hope everyone will mark their calendars now to join us next year on Monday, June 24, 2019!”

Roberts, Senior Vice President, USI Insurance Services; Lunch Sponsor was: Byram Healthcare; 19th Hole Sponsor was: Kelly Honda; Gold Sponsors were: The Law Offices of James J.
