Governors, community support Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions at annual golf tournament
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions held the ninth annual Governor’s Invitational Golf Classic at the Casper Country Club on Friday, July 29.
“Casper is a small community but we have these two hospice homes that typically you wouldn’t find in a town our size just because we don’t have the volume for it but we know this is something that our community needs and wants,” said CWHT Executive Director Kilty Brown.
27 teams participated in the fundraiser tournament to support patient care. In 2021, CWHT provided $250,000 in charity care. According to the organization, they never turn people away for not being able to pay.
“We serve over 500 families every year... I don’t know if everybody understands the depth of impact that we have, ” said Brown.
For many of the people at the tournament and others around Casper, the hospice has impacted someone in their life. According to Senator John Barrasso, the hospice’s program for veterans is unlike any other available in the country.
“My father-in-law, Bob Brown, a World War II veteran. A veteran also of Korea, spent his final days in hospice here in Casper, and he was treated with such love, and respect, and dignity,” said Barrasso.
Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions is currently caring for about 70 families. For more information on the services they provide, click here.
