All proceeds from the annual outing benefit the patients and families being cared for by Hospice of North Central Ohio. As a non-profit, the organization reinvests any margin gained into the programs and services provided to the community. To that end, MWD Logistics, Inc. was the main sponsor of the event with many others supporting it with sponsorships and donations.

“What an enjoyable day this was for everyone involved,” HNCO’s Executive Director Bill Kahl said. “We are grateful to the many golfers, companies, donors, vendors, and community members who make this event fun and successful.”

Hospice of North Central Ohio serves more than 200 patients and families dealing with chronic or terminal illnesses, and hundreds who are journeying through grief. Please call 800.952.2207 for more information. HNCO is a community partner of United Way.
