ROANOKE, Va. (May 18, 2023) – Friendship, a local non-profit leader in senior living and rehabilitation, is grateful to all the community supporters and golfers who participated in its annual golf tournament, which took place on May 11 at Roanoke Country Club.

This event each year has been instrumental in helping us better serve those who live throughout Friendship’s three campuses.”  

The afternoon golf tournament attracted 92 golfers and over 50 corporate sponsors. Cary Street Partners and Marsh McLennan Agency both served as title sponsors. “Both of our title sponsors eagerly committed early on in the event planning, and we are very thankful for their partnership and willingness to support our community,” said Hoff.
