Help Heal the World

September 19th & 20th

Those of you that know us well, are aware that our deepest and most heartfelt client connections are with organizations that are doing good and making the world a better place for the rest of us.

One of my most deeply meaningful fundraisers is the Lochenheath Golf Club “Chip in Fore Munson Hospice” event supporting Munson Hospice House and Munson in-home services.

Northern Michigan is home to one of the few remaining residential style hospice house facilities in the United States providing end of life services in home-like comfort. Providing this high quality compassionate care is expensive as well as critically necessary.

This September on the 19th and 20th at our 9th. annual Lochenheath Golf Club “Chip in Fore Munson Hospice” event we will endeavor to add to our past fundraising efforts which have raised nearly a million dollars!

The funds raised by the Lochenheath Golf Club “Chip in Fore Munson Hospice” event have been invested by Munson Hospice House to cover the cost of direct needs, such as oxygen in each room, expendable supplies, technology to improve patient care, and a kitchen serving the needs of patients and their families.

However we can only reach our goal with your help. Not everybody prefers to contribute in the same way, so we have created a variety of ways for you to do so. Some of these include:

About Munson Hospice

If you are new to the concept of Munson Hospice, may we take a minute to share what they do:

Hospice is a form of palliative care that seeks to optimize the quality of life at the end of life, while neither hindering nor hastening the dying process.

Near the end-of-life, the challenges of serious illness can erode a person’s dignity – which can increase pain and despair for both the patient and family. Hospice Care offers an important medical and emotional benefit to terminally ill patients who may only have months to live. People who receive hospice care no longer receive curative treatment for their underlying disease. Hospice is not a place, but rather a form of medical care that enables the probability of a peaceful death for most people.

Munson Hospice helps people remain in control and die at home, or for those who cannot remain at home, at our inpatient hospice facility in Traverse City. 

Every year a minimum of 10% of our profits at Freshwater Events, LLC are used to help heal the world
