On April 25, 2012, Rick Kenyon picked up a friendly hitchhiker named Joe Chagnon as he traveled through Brattleboro, Vermont. What happened next, neither could have anticipated.
It may sound cliché, but the world certainly does work in mysterious ways. Rick and Joe are living proof. Fate brought these two men together and now Joe is a patient at Grace Cottage Hospital, where Rick’s wife, Cindy is his Physical Therapist. This is their story…
What an amazing weekend we had for the 3rd Annual “Tee Up for Health” Golf Benefit on June 10. We had beautiful weather, for the first time in 3 years, and 104 golfers on 26 teams turned out for the event on a truly breathtaking day at the Tater Hill Golf Club in Windham, Vermont.
With the help of our golfers, sponsors, auction contributors, bidders and winners, volunteers and the staff at Tater Hill Golf Club we raised over $20,000 for the expansion of Grace Cottage’s Messenger Valley Pharmacy.
Congrats to the winning team of golfers: Doug Ward, Tom Dannemiller and Lynn Bucossi.
The winners for the Silent Auction are listed on the auction website, along with the final amounts that each item went for. Congrats to all of our high bidders. There were some really awesome prizes up for auction this year.
We enjoyed a fantastic cake made by Grace Cottage Hospital employee Kristina van Dusen. Yum!
We’d also like to offer a special thanks to our many event sponsors: Cerner Corporation , Architect Vance Hosford, and WKVT; the Dinner Sponsor was Elizabeth Walker; Silver Sponsors were Brunelle & Son, Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, and People’s United Bank; Hole Sponsors were Brattleboro Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Delta Dental, Durand Motors, e-PharmPro, Dr. Walter Griffiths, H.D.
