Mount Laurel, NJ – Samaritan recently held their 33rd annual golf tournament, “Drive FORE! A Good Cause,” at Little Mill Country Club in Marlton. The tournament raised more than $205,000 and greater awareness for the essential services Samaritan provides as a leader in home-based primary care, palliative medicine, hospice care and complex illness care in South Jersey.
All funds raised by the tournament, presented by The Richardson Family Dealerships, will support the organization’s comprehensive family of services that enhance the lives of patients and their loved ones as they cope with issues of aging, serious illness or grief.
“Our Drive FORE! A Good Cause golf tournament continues to support Samaritan’s continuum of life-enhancing care
and above and beyond services,” said Phillip W. Heath, president and CEO of Samaritan. “We extend our sincere thanks to all of this year’s golfers, volunteers, sponsors, especially The Richardson Family Dealerships, and to our hard-working golf committee, led by returning co-chairs Cliff Mancine and Roy Fazio. Your support and commitment year after year allows us to provide expert care and compassion to over 11,000 patients and their families annually throughout the South Jersey region!”
