On Monday, August 26th, 128 area golfers supported Hospice by playing in The Circulus Golf Tournament. This year's tournament raised $6,000 for Hospice Chautauqua County's mission.
The Golf Committee notes that Hospice Chautauqua County is an independent, charitable health care agency, licensed to provide compassionate medical treatment to support comfort and quality of life for patients and their families.
Hospice staff provides medical treatment to reduce pain and improve quality of life, as well as social services, pastoral care, and bereavement services.

Tom Olson is quick to acknowledge the work of Hospice. "I think that anyone who's had experience with Hospice understands why it's important. They affect the lives of so many people in Chautauqua County in a positive way."
Hospice in turn is grateful for the support offered by the Circulus Men's Club and its annual golf tournament. Hospice CEO and President Ron Sellers says that, "We are extremely grateful for their support which allows Hospice to continue to provide the level of compassionate, professional care that patients and families deserve to receive during the end stages of a loved one's life."
The Circulus Golf Committee is made up of six dedicated individuals. They are Phil DeAngelo, Bucky Lombardo, Tom Olson, Ron Pappalardo, Jerry Rishell, and Jack Scalise. Hospice notes that without their time and dedication, Hospice would not be able to provide advanced therapies for their patients. Oftentimes, these therapies are not covered by a patient's insurance.
