The families and friends of two special men held a memorial golf tournament last summer.
The John & John Golf Tournament held at Oak Run Golf Club in Lockport raised $5,000 to support the programs and services of Niagara Hospice. The other portion of the proceeds went to the Altamont Program Inc., which provides much-needed services to area veterans.
"We held this tournament to remember and celebrate the lives of John Bewley and John Pouthier, who left us far too soon," said Jean Pouthier, one of the tournament organizers.
This year's tournament will be held July 11. For more information about the John & John Golf Tournament, visit www.twojohns.weebly.com.
"It is hard work to put on an event this size; we are so appreciative to the organizers and sponsors of this tournament for their efforts," said Mandy Raff, special events coordinator for the Niagara Hospice Alliance.
