Supportive Care of Orleans to host 24th Annual Golf Tournament


ALBION, N.Y. — Friends of Supportive Care of Orleans came out to support the organization by competing and volunteering in its 24th Annual Golf Tournament. 


Only a few months ago, Supportive Care of Orleans, formerly Hospice of Orleans, was not sure the tournament would even be possible. 


“We had a late start planning the tournament this year due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 early on,” Supportive Care of Orleans CEO Elisa Chambery said. “Despite the many challenges we encountered along the way, this year’s event was a huge success, and it was wonderful to see everyone enjoying the day.”


With 104 golfers in attendance and 29 volunteers helping, golfers were also able to participate in a putting contest as well as Closet to Pin and Longest Drives competitions.


“It was wonderful to see so many volunteers willing to come out and help us despite being on hold this past year,” Chris Fancher Volunteer Coordinator at Supportive Care of Orleans said. “We are grateful for all that they do.”


During dinner, the raffle winners, contest winners, and tournament champions were announced. The champions of Supportive Care of Orleans’ 24th Annual Golf Tournament are:

Men’s division: Ron Nettnin, Ed Nettnin, Ryan Haines, and Kevin Leary won with a score of 57. 

Women’s division: Karen Berlew, Deb Wood, Aleta Maynard, and Brenda Powers won with a score of 68. 

Mixed division: Ryan Woodward, Chelsi Clark, Lionel Rhim, and Brian Kline won after a three-way tie with two other teams all with a score of 60. 


“We would like to thank Mitchell Family Funeral Homes, Bob Johnson Chevrolet - West, Webster Schubel Meier Elder Law, The Notable Corporation, our Wells Fargo Advisors, LMT Technology Solutions, Rochester Regional Health, Orleans Legislative Chairman Lynne Johnson along with the rest of our donors, volunteers, and sponsors who helped make the tournament a success,” Chambery said. “This wouldn’t be possible without your continued support.”


Thanks to everyone’s hard work and participation, the organization can’t wait to get started on planning their 25th Annual Golf Tournament tentatively scheduled for the Summer of 2022. Stay tuned!
