The Wentworth-Douglass Foundation raised $206,515 for programs and equipment for the hospital’s Women and Children’s Center at the 28th Annual Wentworth-Douglass Charity Classic on June 21.
“This event is a wonderful reminder of the power of community,” said M. Jacqueline Eastwood, chair of the Wentworth-Douglass Foundation Board of Directors. “The Charity Classic raises critical funds for the Women and Children’s Center that allows our clinical team to provide the highest-quality of care for pregnant and post-partum women and our smallest and most vulnerable patients. We are grateful to our community, our corporate sponsors, our golfers, and volunteers who helped make this annual event a rousing success. We are excited to announce we have raised $206,515 thanks to their generosity, and support.”
The Charity Classic welcomed 144 golfers for a great day of 18-holes of golf at Cochecho Country Club. Golfers teed up for the 9 a.m. start followed by an awards luncheon and program and had the chance to win a raffle prize to Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and bid on trips, weekend getaways, tickets to sporting events, spa packages and other items during a live auction with local auctioneer, Mark Fodero.
A favorite tradition of the Charity Classic is the Fund-A-Need program, which raises funds for specific strategic needs of the Women and Children’s Center. This year, the goal was to raise funds to purchase the GE Omnibed Giraffe Carestation; a critical piece of equipment that regulates temperature, provides a safe incubator, and reduces environmental stress for premature babies.
“The support generated for our Fund-A-Need Program is amazing,” said Geoffrey Ness, president and CEO of Nessit, Wentworth-Douglass Foundation Board Member, and chair of the Wentworth-Douglass Charity Classic Committee. “Through the generosity of this group of golfers, we were able to raise nearly $13,500 toward of the cost of this piece of equipment, which was an incredible success and a huge help to the Hospital!”
The winners of the Charity Classic received a trophy and green jackets. The 2022 winning foursome came in 16 under par and was represented by Michael Whitman and Eric Beauregard of Bangor Savings Bank and Richie Stover and Josh Trivilino of Omada Technologies. Both companies were also sponsors of the event.
