BROCKVILLE – The 24th edition of the Friends of Palliative Care Golf Tournament has raised roughly $210,000.

The impressive total is not as high as the 20th anniversary where $250,000 was raised nor the $649,000 year in 2015 when two last-minute donations were added to the fundraising total.

Still, organizers are impressed with the turnout and the total, which put them over last year’s total of $187,000.

Roughly 260 golfers and 75 volunteers took part in the event Wednesday (Aug. 30).
