Hope Hospice receives $25,000 from Greenbrier Classic golfer George McNeill’s hole-in-one

Fort Myers resident and PGA golfer George McNeill aced the par-3 18th in the first round at The Greenbrier Classic today, winning $25,000 to donate to his charity of choice. McNeill didn’t hesitate: his choice was Hope Hospice.

McNeill’s sister, Michelle, passed away in the Cape Hope Hospice House almost exactly a year ago, while her little brother shot his lowest score ever – a 61 – at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Today, McNeill scored his second hole-in-one The Greenbrier in the space of one year. McNeill’s mother Dottie called Hope to share the news.

“We are truly grateful for George’s most generous acknowledgement of the care we provided for his sister,” said Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services. “It is our privilege to provide comfort and care when it is needed most.”
