18-hole, “Swing for Success” to Benefit Downeast Recovery Support Fund
Orrington- On Saturday, September 14, 2019, the Maine Association of Nurse Anesthetists (MeANA), Rocky Knoll Golf Course, and Healthy Acadia will host the second annual, “Swing for Success,” 18-hole golf tournament fundraiser at Rocky Knoll Golf Course, 94 River Road, Orrington. All registration proceeds from this event will build Healthy Acadia’s Downeast Recovery Support Fund, to provide access to resources needed by individuals and their families throughout their recovery journey.
Registration for “Swing for Success” is $125 per person, or $400 for a team of four if registering online ($450 at the event). Individuals registering for the tournament will be assigned a team upon arrival. Register online at www.meana.org.
The Downeast Recovery Support Fund, assists those in recovery from opioid and other substances with urgent needs, such as emergency housing, transportation, and basics such as clothes, shoes, and food, through a highly-defined and monitored referral and mini-grant process. The Fund will be accessible to Hancock and Washington county community members seeking recovery.
“There is a great need for support services to help those who have received treatment to safely transition back into the community. Too often these individuals will relapse and it’s often fatal. We are excited about being involved in this worthwhile effort,” said Susan DeCarlo-Piccirillo, CRNA, DNP, MeANA’s Public Relations Chair.
On-site registration for “Swing for Success” begins at 9:00am; tee time is at 10:00am. Registration includes the luncheon barbecue, which begins at 12:00pm. Snacks will be available, along with great prizes and cash awards: Sink a hole in one, and you could win a car. Prizes will also be awarded for closest to the pin and longest yard. A 50/50 raffle will also be held.
“We are so honored by MeANA and the Rocky Knoll Golf Course’s support,” said Shoshona Smith, Healthy Acadia’s Development Director. “Funds to help remove barriers to successful recovery are much needed and an extremely impact way to address the opioid epidemic. I would like to thank these partners for all they are doing.”
As this is a charitable event supporting addiction recovery, no alcohol will be served.
