Family hosts Mattingly Memorial Golf Scramble

-A A +A


Eddie Mattingly’s brother, Gerald, received excellent care from Hospice of Nelson County. Mattingly lives in Lebanon and knows many in the community who have benefited from care provided by Hosparus. With a desire to help residents of Marion County and honor his brother’s memory, each year Eddie and his family host the Gerald Mattingly Memorial Golf Scramble. In total, this annual event’s five year run, has netted more than $42,000 to benefit Hosparus patients and families. And, that’s only half the story. The Mattingly family also has donated about the same amount to Hospice of Nelson County.
“We want to make sure patients and families in Marion and Nelson counties have access to hospice care,” Mattingly said. “It’s a wonderful service that our family and community have come to depend on. We’re already making plans for next year.”
Lisa Sanford, director of advancement and community relations at Hosparus Central Kentucky, adds, “We can’t thank Eddie and the entire Mattingly family for their unwavering support of our mission of caring.  Thanks to events such as this golf scramble, we care for patients and their families regardless of their ability to pay.”
