2016 Hit Fore Hospice


May 2014    

It was a beautiful day in September and eighty seven golfers found themselves on the Chester Golf Course raising awareness and funds to make a hospice for Halifax a reality.

On September 21st the Rotary Clubs of Metro Halifax held their 3rd “Hit Fore Hospice” golf tournament. The tournament was a roaring success thanks to the volunteers from Scotiabank and many Rotarians. We are also grateful for our tournament sponsors which included O’Regan’s, Scotiabank, Conrad Brothers, Patterson Law, Desjardins, The Chronicle Herald, Atlantic Funeral Home, Novacorp, RBC Dominion Securities and Print Pro.  A special thanks goes out to Rotarian Don & Marg Chisholm who led the charge and shouldered and great deal of the organizing.

There was excitement on hole #16 when Greg Forbes got a hole-in-one. He took home a $1,000 prize put up by O’Regan’s. The Scott Lynch foursome won low gross with a score of 63 and Geraldine Garnier won the longest drive.

All in all it was a successful day and approximately $13,000 was raised for a Halifax’s first residential hospice.
