COAST CITIES — San Diego Hospice celebrated a successful year for its fifth annual golf tournament at The Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe, with 120 golfers playing during the patriotic-themed, Sept. 11 fundraiser.Sports celebrities who played in the tournament included World Series champion and Major League Baseball All-Star Jamie Moyer, and NAPA National Hot Rod Association Funny Car Driver Ron Capps.
Proceeds raised benefit the grief and loss support programs offered through The Center for Grief Care and Education at San Diego Hospice, including Camp Erin San Diego – an annual weekend summer camp open to children ages 6 to 17 who have been impacted by a death. Camp Erin San Diego was established by The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit organization founded Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen. The Foundation’s mission is to help children in distress.
“The success of our annual golf tournament is largely due to the incredible support of our volunteer committee, led by Chairwoman Kristy Brehm and Co-Chairwoman Kim VanNostern,” said Traci Bruckner, Chief Development Officer for San Diego Hospice and The Institute for Palliative Medicine. “Their tireless efforts help to raise awareness about San Diego Hospice services, especially grief and loss support programs for adults and children. “
The community is invited to save the date of September 10, 2013, for the sixth annual San Diego Hospice Invitational Golf Tournament at The Crosby in Rancho Santa Fe.
