All Care VNA & Hospice is thrilled to announced that the 29th Annual Charity Golf Open held on June 27th at Gannon Golf Course, Lynn, MA was a tremendous success! More than $75,000 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.

“Even with the rain, and boy did it rain, our golfers managed to “leave their mark.” notes Mary Winters, All Care’s Vice President. “This event wouldn’t be possible, or nearly as much fun, without our dedicated sponsors, golfers and volunteers. We hope everyone will mark their calendars now to join us next year on Monday, June 26, 2023.”
