Grossi Golf Tournament Raises $6,000 to Support Cancer Services at Arroyo Grande Community Hospital

The annual event was hosted by the Cypress Ridge Residents’ Golf Club

ARROYO GRANDE, CA – August 11, 2017 – The Cypress Ridge Residents’ Golf Club held its thirteenth annual Grossi Golf Tournament on July 16th, 17th, and 18th with proceeds benefitting cancer services at Arroyo Grande Community Hospital (AGCH).

The Grossi Golf Tournament has supported women’s cancer services at Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation for several years, which is decided by a majority vote among Cypress Ridge Residents’ Golf Club members. This year’s tournament raised $6,000 in support of expanded cancer services as part of Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation’s Legacy Campaign.

Dave Kerin, Grossi Golf Tournament Co-Chair said, “I’m fortunate enough not to have had the need for cancer services myself, but there are so many others in the community dealing with this unfortunate disease. Anything we can do to help stamp it out and improve the chances for those diagnosed is what our objective is.”

At the close of the golf tournament, a fundraiser dinner was held at the Cypress Ridge Pavilion with a live and silent auction. Over 50 local businesses contributed to auction packages, resulting in six live auction packages and seven silent auction packages.

Montisa Phelan Lopez, Vice President of Philanthropy at Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation, said, “We are so appreciative of the effort the Cypress Ridge Residents’ Golf Club puts into hosting this tournament each year, and for everyone who participates in support of cancer services. We are so excited to increase the range of cancer care services we provide at our hospital, and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our community.”

The next Grossi Golf Tournament will be held in July 2018, and the event is open to anyone who would like to participate.
