The 28th annual Kanawha Valley Construction Labor-Management Golf Scramble raised $8,000 for HospiceCare, a non-profit organization that provides end of life services to patients in need.
“We believe it’s important to give back, especially to such a great cause,” said Fred Chandler, Business Manager of the Charleston Building and Construction Trades Council. “By working together as labor and management, we double our efforts to support this charity and build a stronger relationship together in the process.”
This year’s event is part of a long-standing partnership between the Kanawha Valley Builders Association and the Charleston Building Trades.
Representatives from HospiceCare estimate the partnership has raised nearly $98 thousand since 2002 to support their work through these annual events.
HospiceCare provides end of life care for patients in 16 counties of West Virginia with services including 24/7 skilled nurses, pain management, and Certified Nursing Assistants that provide a full spectrum of personal care assistance for patients.
