OCEAN CITY, MD – Oct. 28, 2018 – The second annual Michael J. Strawley, Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament, held on September 24 at the River Run Golf Club in Berlin, raised $7,000 for the Macky & Pam Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.
A total of 136 golfers registered to play in the tournament organized by the Strawley Memorial Committee, in memory of Michael, former longtime owner of the Bearded Clam Bar in Ocean City.
Tee signs, sponsored by 33 local businesses, helped raise the $7,000 donation.
“The committee wants to thank those who support our tournament with tee sign sponsorships and in other ways to make the event such a successful fundraiser for an important cause,” said George McKelvie of the planning committee. “We are especially grateful for the outstanding support from River Run Golf Club, Eastern Shore Distributors, Carey Distributors, The Cork Bar, The Atlantic Stand, Pit and Pub, Coins and the Bearded Clam.”
The Macky & Pam Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean will be a hospice house and community outreach center in Worcester County. It will be a home for hospice patients who lack an able caregiver. It will also be the site for community-based palliative care, counseling, grief support, and community wellness programs.
