Baystate Mary Lane Hospital Summer Swing Classic Tees Off June 21

WARE — The Baystate Mary Lane Hospital Summer Swing Classic, sponsored by County Bank for Savings and Health New England, tees off this year on Monday, June 21 at noon from Hampden Country Club in Hampden.

“Year after year, through the dedicated support by the local business community, this golf tournament helps us provide state-of-the-art health care to our patients,” said Deb Gagnon, development manager of Baystate Mary Lane Hospital.

“And,” she added, “we are extremely thankful to have Country Bank and Health New England on board as presenting sponsors of this special event.”

Funds raised from this year’s tournament have been earmarked for the hospital’s Campaign for Patient Care, which was established to allow BMLH to continue important programs and services for patients and their families, noted Gagnon. These funds will provide for enhanced technology and equipment to better serve the community.

Last year’s Summer Swing tournament raised more than $25,000 to benefit the hospital, and featured a full field of players and special events following the tournament.

“This year’s tournament will once again feature a number of the popular items that have made the tournament such a success, including competitions on the course for the golfers, consisting of closest to the pin and longest drive, as well as our newest competition, par 3 poker,” said Gagnon.

“The golf steering committee continues to put a great deal of volunteer work into the success of the tournament,” she added, “and we at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital are grateful for their commitment to the hospital and our mission to provide quality care close to home for the many communities we serve. We invite community members and local business to join us for a fun day on the golf course that includes golf, networking, dinner, and much more.”
