Re/Max in Rhode Island raised $5,000 for Hasbro Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at the 27th annual Re/Max Open Golf Tournament this past summer.
The funding allows Hasbro to renovate its fifth floor family room this month, said Karli Blossom, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals program director.
“This room will be such a wonderful respite for all the families of children being treated on that floor, in an environment that will remind families of the comfort in their home,” she said.
More than 150 people turned out for the event held in at the Potowomut Golf Club in July in Warwick.
“All of the Re/Max team members that participated in this golf tournament deserve a big round of applause,” said Dan Breault, executive vice president and regional director of Re/Max of New England. “This annual tournament has raised more than $55,000 to date for a variety of different causes throughout Rhode Island, most notably contributions to Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and that is an enormous accomplishment that everyone should be proud of.”
