The Aroostook Hospice Foundation extends sincere gratitude to the Logan P. Graves Foundation, the 2024 Golf Classic Platinum Sponsor, for their $10,000 contribution, as well as to everyone who played a role in this year’s event. Since its opening in 2018, the Aroostook House  of Comfort has provided compassionate, inpatient hospice care to over 1,000 patients in partnership with Northern Light Home Care &  Hospice.

The Aroostook Hospice  Foundation, owner of the Aroostook House of Comfort, sincerely thanks all sponsors, donors, participants, and volunteers for making this  event a tremendous success. They eagerly look forward to the 12th Annual Golf Classic next year!
