Forty women from throughout Maine and New Hampshire gathered July 18 at Maple Lane Golf Course in Livermore to support their sisters in need, according to a news release from Franklin Community Health Network. More than 35 people and businesses donated funds to be hole sponsors, bid on donated silent auction items, and competed in 18 holes of golf.

At the conclusion of the event, $4,113 was raised and donated to the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center in Farmington, a program of Franklin Memorial Hospital. Funds will help assist breast cancer patients with paying for expenses not covered by insurance during treatment and recovery. The center’s Breast Care Support Nurse Kelly Alley was present to accept the funds and explained ways the monies are used to help women, saying that the offer of financial assistance can be a glimmer of light and hope for newly diagnosed patients and their families, according to the release.
