September 28, 2007

Albany-- The weather outside today was picture perfect for golfers at Doublegate Country Club. Area golfers were not just there to enjoy the weather or shoot their best game.

They were there to raise money in the 22nd Lopez Hospice Golf Classic benefiting Albany Community Hospice. For twenty two years legendary golfer and Albany resident Nancy Lopez has made it her mission to raise money for Albany Community Hospice. 

The non-profit group is expanding to serve more families dealing with end of life issues. "it's a fun tournament, its a lot of work, but it is worth every hour and penny that we put into it" said Vice President of the Phoebe Foundation Tom sullivan.

The money raised this year through Lopez and the Phoebe Foundation event will help Albany Community Hospice build the Willson Hospice House that will house eighteen beds and provide families with extra care and compassion through stressful times.

 "willson hospice house will allow us to do a better job for certain people, because they need this additional level of care" said Patty Woodall Director of Albany Community Hospice.
