Munson Hospice House Receives Large Donation From Community Golf Fundraiser

“No event has come anywhere near this in the history of Munson Healthcare.”

An astounding donation from two Northern Michigan businesses to Munson Hospice House.

Schmuckal Oil and the Lochenheath Golf Club partnered up this summer for their 7th Annual ‘Chip In Fore Munson Hospice’ golf fundraiser.

The event brought in more than $140,000, which was presented at the Munson Hospice House Monday.

The hospice house provides compassionate care to patients reaching the end of their life, giving comfort at a critical time.

The donors say they’re continually impressed by the impact hospice can have.

“It’s really amazing to deliver that much money to an organization like hospice. It shows how much effect they have on people and their loved ones in the end of life. But it’s beyond our expectations,” Paul Schmuckal, chairman, Schmuckal Oil Company said.

Munson staff says this is one of the largest donations the hospice house has ever received.
