Charity Golf Classic raises $31,000


United Methodist Elder Care hosted its 5th Annual Charity Golf Classic on Monday, June 24 at Alpine Country Club in Cranston. Proceeds from the event will benefit the United Methodist Elder Care Communities.

This year’s tournament was held in memory of Theodore (Ted) R. Stearns, loving United Methodist Elder Care resident and golf tournament committee member who passed away in February.  Following the tournament, an awards and recognition luncheon was held. Event highlights included contest holes, raffles and the Nike Mobile Pro Golf Shop.

The event raised more than $31,000 to support the services and programs of the United Methodist Elder Care Communities.  This funding will provide rent supplements, services and meal supplements, medical and rehabilitation devices, therapeutic interventions, and even social hours and special celebrations for its residents. United Methodist Elder Care Communities acknowledges all those event sponsors, registrants and volunteers who made this event possible, including its premier Ryders Cup Sponsor, East Commerce Solutions.

Since 1971, the United Methodist Elder Care has been an equal opportunity of housing and care welcoming all religious, ethnic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds and support productive and joyful aging. Located in East Providence, United Methodist Elder Care is an affordable continuum of housing and care serving very low- to moderate-income seniors.

Through its three facilities, Winslow Gardens, Linn Health Care Center and Arbor Hill, it provides a full complement of services to the low- to moderate-income aging throughout Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
