The Bridge Hospice fund-raising committee held their first-ever golf tournament last weekend to come a little closer to building the first residential hospice in Northumberland County.

“For a first year tournament, it went extremely well,” said treasurer Martin Hare. The fund raiser attracted 58 golfers as well as an additional 28 dinner guests after the day on the links. The three-bedroom residential hospice is now about $56,500 away from realizing the start of construction on April 1, 2011.

“We hope to have it open by September of next year,” said fund-raising chair, Dr. Bob Stephens.

But the Bridge Hospice fund-raising team isn’t done yet. They have two more events coming up in the next couple of months. The first, a fashion show, is slated for September 18 at the Town Hall in Warkworth. Advertised as a “girls night out,” organizer Bev Roy says it’s an event you don’t want to miss.

“We’re calling it ‘Girls Night Out’ but you can bring your man,” she said with a laugh. “It’s going to be an amazing show. We’re using local young girls for models, I’m having a professional runway built and there’s going to be lots of lights and music.”
