For the past ten years, the tournament has raised money for the
Hospice of Charleston Foundation, a non-profit organization that
makes compassionate end of life care possible by assisting families
who turn to Hospice for help. Last year, $37,500 was presented to
the HOC at the buffet dinner, bringing the total gift over past
years to over $221,500. Please consider supporting the Hospice of
Charleston Foundation by noting your donation on the Tournament
Entry Form. In addition, Thursday's Players' Cocktail Party will
feature a robust silent auction with all funds raised during this
evening's event directly benefiting the Hospice of Charleston
Foundation. We encourage you to consider joining us in these
fund-raising efforts. It's a win-win situation!
