Golf Under the Lights raises $19,960 for MHP Hospice


Oskaloosa Herald

OSKALOOSA — Mahaska Hospice Auxiliary and Mahaska Communication Group again teamed up with Musco Lighting to host “Golf Under the Lights” on May 24 at Oskaloosa Golf. The annual event raised more than $19,960 for the Mahaska Hospice Auxiliary.

According to MHP Hospice Auxiliary Co-Chair Mary Anderson, 108 golfers on 18 teams enjoyed a fantastic night of golfing under Musco’s bright lights. “It got a little chilly during the brief rain shower, but everyone had a great time and most importantly, we raised a lot of money to benefit hospice patients in our community.”

Through team entry fees, corporate hole sponsorships, donations, a putting contest, raffle ticket sales and the Musco donation from their employee night of golfing, the committee was able to present a huge check to the Mahaska Hospice Auxiliary.

“This is the largest fundraiser we have for our hometown hospice, and we are so grateful to MCG and Musco Lighting for all their support,” Anderson stressed.

Golf Under the Lights Committee Member Kiley Broadway of MCG said this is the fifth year that the golf tournament was held under the lights. “In the last five years, we were able to raise more than $100,000 for our local hospice,” Broadway said. “We have a fantastic committee working on the tournament every year, and we are very grateful to our many local businesses and community members who are generous with their support of hospice.”
