Tee off for a good cause with WV Caring


PRESTON COUNTY—Grab your golf clubs and get ready to hit the green for an upcoming golf tournament geared toward raising funds for a great cause.

WV Caring will be welcoming golfers from far and wide to their 31st Annual Dr. D.R. Davis Golf Classic this weekend, at Preston Country Club. All proceeds from the event will be used to help patients with advanced life-limiting illnesses.

“Golfers are also wanted to play, have fun, and make a difference in the lives of their neighbors and friends who are terminally ill,” shared WV Caring Vice President of Public Affairs Cynthia Woodyard.

Gather your friends and make up a team to hit the green in support of WV Caring’s mission, or if you’d rather fly solo, individuals can take part in the fun, as well.

The event will feature a shotgun scramble, with two separate tee times. The first group will begin swinging their clubs at 8:00 a.m., and the second group will begin at 2:00 p.m.

“We need more teams and players for both the morning and afternoon groups,” Woodyard revealed.

Teams can register at a cost of $280, while individuals can get in on the fun for $70 each. That registration fee comes with some great benefits, including 18 holes of golf, a cart to ride around in, lunch, goodie bags and lots of prizes and refreshments.

Individual and team registration is available by calling 1-800-350-1161, or online registration is available at www.wvcaring.org.

Woodyard revealed that here will be eligibility to win prizes for the top three-placed teams, as well as awards for Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and a Hole in One at designated tees.

For those that would like to assist with the event but aren’t keen on golfing will have other opportunities to help out.

“Other ways to participate include donating a door prize or by promoting your company in the golfer goodie bags,” Woodyard shared.

She added that a variety of sponsorships and package levels are available. For more information on those opportunities please contact Kim Riley at [email protected].

WV Caring is dedicated to serving individuals and their families transitioning through life-limiting illnesses with hospice care, counseling, education and outreach.  They are considered an “Open Access” provider, which means they accept complicated diagnoses and patients without an ability to pay for their care where other providers do not. 

“Healthcare costs for services continue to rise; however, our level of care for patients remains high and we need your help to raise funds for patient care,” Woodyard revealed.

WV Caring, formerly named Hospice Care Corporation, is a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization, is dedicated to serving the terminally ill and their families in 12 counties in North Central West Virginia since 1983. 

In fact, WV Caring is a free-standing, community-based hospice and palliative care provider.
