​Sponsorships Support Medina Hospice Patients and Families

Twelve years ago, Medina business owner and philanthropist Pat Spoerndle decided to put his passion for golf to work to give back to his hometown community. That’s when the concept behind his unique annual fundraiser, 100 for Hospice, was born. On Monday, Aug. 24, Spoerndle will once again take to the links to play 100 consecutive holes of golf in a single day at Fox Meadow Country Club to benefit HMC Hospice of Medina County. Joining him will be “Centurion” Mark Dorman, who earned the opportunity to shoot 100 holes of golf alongside Spoerndle for his generous $10,000 contribution to the fundraiser last year.

The name of the event, 100 for Hospice, signifies the percentage of money raised that will go directly to Hospice of Medina County and the number of holes Spoerndle will play in one day.

“The event has been successful due to the ongoing support of individual donors, corporate donors, volunteers and Fox Meadow Country Club,” he said.  
Last year’s outing raised more than $49,000 for Hospice of Medina County, and since its inception, the event has raised more than $310,000.

The local business owner explained that over the years, Hospice of Medina County has become his primary charity. Citing its community-based services and dedication to the wellbeing of its patients and their families, Spoerndle is dedicated to supporting the organization’s work.
“We are incredibly grateful to Pat for his ongoing dedication, and for the generous support of so many businesses and individuals in the Medina community,” said Racheal Seibert, Chief Development Officer.
