For the third consecutive year, Greensboro Elks Lodge #602 has named Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro (HPCG) as beneficiary of its annual golf tournament. Held on September 13, at Bryan Park’s Player’s Course, the event raised $21,250.  

HPCG applauds the diligent efforts of Gary Selders, tournament director, and Ace Kirkman, chair, along with the entire tournament committee. They presented a well-organized event with great prizes, good food and lots of fun. The great success of this event lies with the generosity of sponsors, many of whom represent long-standing relationships cultivated by the Elks Lodge over many years. Major sponsors of the event included Greensboro Elks Lodge #602, Apple Tree Academies, CMB Investments, Carolina Bank, Forbis & Dick Funeral Services, Inc., North Carolina Eye Bank, Ozone Waste Solutions, Columbia Forest Products and Denise and Michael Peterson.

“We are very proud to have raised more than $55,000 for HPCG these past three years,” said Selders. “HPCG is a fantastic organization that does so much good for the people of Greensboro. We are honored to be able to do our part in supporting such a great organization and of course we look forward to another great tournament next year.”

Located on Cornwallis Drive, the Greensboro Elks Lodge #602 has a long history of investing its financial support, as well as its members’ time and talents to enrich the community. Current recipients of its generosity include A Flag in Every Classroom in Guilford County, Camp Carefree in Stokesdale, Veteran’s Hospital in Salisbury and the NC State Veteran’s Home, as well as many local efforts that honor and assist veterans.

HPCG, a nonprofit organization serving Guilford County and surrounding areas for more than 33 years, is situated on an eight-acre campus at 2500 Summit Avenue. HPCG provides physical, emotional and spiritual support for children and adults faced with a life-limiting illness, as well as their caregivers and families.
