John P. Campbell Memorial tournament raises $20K for Hospice of Iredell
The legacy created by the John P. Campbell Memorial Golf Tournament just keeps growing.
This year’s tournament, held on Aug. 15 at Mallard Head Golf Course, added $20,000 to the more than $600,000 raised for Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County over the past 24 years. Proceeds support HPCIC’s mission of honoring life by providing extraordinary care with compassion, comfort, and dignity to patients, families and community.
“The Campbell family has been such an incredible gift to our organization, giving of their time so generously for the past 24 years to make this tournament a success,” said HPCIC CEO Terri Phillips. “The funds they have raised have helped us provide extraordinary care for so many patients at a time when they need it most.”
John P. Campbell, an Iredell County native, developed and opened the Mallard Head Golf Course in 1979. Campbell hosted the first tournament July 21, 1995, to raise awareness of hospice and support the work of HPCIC. Although he passed away in 2006, the Campbell family keeps this generous tradition alive by donating all proceeds to HPCIC.
This year, more than 175 golfers participated in the tournament. The winners of each flight were:
- 1st Flight: Brian Long and Clay Speaks, Score: 60
- 2nd Flight: Bill Warner and Pete Dame, Score: 64
- 3rd Flight: Wayne Sykes and Trey McKee, Score: 65
