OXFORD – Now celebrating its seventh year, the Mary Jane Prindle Golf Tournament is making its way to a new locale – the Blue Stone Golf Course – while it continues to raise money for Hospice of Chenango County.
Since 2006, the annual event has brought in more than $36,000, according to organizers; funds that are vital to Hospice’s goal of providing physical, emotional and spiritual care for patients and families dealing with a life-limiting illness, according to Donna Wood-Craig, development and community relations coordinator with the local Hospice.
And it’s not too late to participate, she added, as sign-ups will be held through Thursday. The tournament’s format, as in years past, is captain and crew, costing $300 per team. For that, golfers will enjoy 18 holes of golf, with carts provided, prizes and a 5:30 p.m. dinner. Registration – and the putting contest – will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, and additional challenges will include longest drive and closest to the pin contests.
