Partners HealthCare At Home Golf Tournament Raised $660K

Partners HealthCare At Home, a nonprofit non-acute care services division of Partners HealthCare that provides care to improve quality of life for persons recovering from, or learning to live fully with, illness, injury, and disability, announced that its recent annual golf tournament raised $660,000.

The 24th Annual Tee-Off Golf Tournament, held June 14 at the Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, considered one of the most successful golf tournaments in the country, raised funds to support existing programs and services.

Since its inception, the Annual Tee Off has raised more than $5.5 million for programs such as life-saving telemonitoring services for cardiac patients, care for high-risk infants and mothers, and medication and care for uninsured patients.

More than 200 golfers participated in the event, which included a hole-in-one contest to win a trip to Pebble Beach. Other highlights included special food tastings provided by Boston Burger Company, The Bacon Truck, Tavern on the Water, Boston Harbor Distillery, and Ben and Jerry’s.

Sponsors included Bank of America, Bridgewater Associates, Century Bank, and Elliott and Willis Towers Watson.

Partners HealthCare at Home is affiliated with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network in Cambridge as key parts of Partners Continuing Care, the non-acute care services division of Partners HealthCare, founded by Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital and a principal teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

Merrimack Repertory Theatre Raises $100K for Education Programs

Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT), a Lowell nonprofit that focuses on producing contemporary plays, last week announced that its Set the Stage Celebration raised $100,398, the most it has ever raised for its education offerings in its 38 years.

“When something like this happens, we all win” said Sean Daniels, MRT artistic director. “More of our kids can see live theatre—many of them for the first time ever—and more of our kids can make theatre themselves, telling their own stories on our stage. We’re ensuring that incredible theatre will always be a part of our lives here in Lowell and the Merrimack Valley.”

Revenue from the event, which drew 175 people to the UMass Lowell Inn and Conference Center on June 9, will support MRT’s two education programs: Student Matinees, which bring students from across the region to see MRT shows—and Young Company, which has students tell their own stories in summer sessions, and stay connected with MRT all year long.

Funds were raised through more than 100 silent auction packages and seven live auction items.

Sponsors included Rickard K. and Nancy L. Donahue Charitable Foundation, Stephen and Suzanne Irish | Demoulas Foundation, Enterprise Bank, Judy and Geoff, Frank and Belva Hopkins, Martha Mayo | Lowell Five, Washington Savings Bank, Debra Grossman and Kate Tyndall, Judith G. and James C. Mabry, Susan Mitchell and Jim Waldo | Clark Insurance, and University of Massachusetts Lowell.
