SCOHA Donates $4,000 from the Jim Mercanti Memorial Golf Tournament to the McNally House Hospice

Last year's golf tournament raised $4,000 and it was decided by the executive to donate that money to the McNally House Hospice in the name of Jim Mercanti. The money, combined with $2,300 from the Mercanti Family goes in an effort to purchase an elevator in memory of Jim.

Please see the Jim Mercanti Memorial page here on the SCOHA site for a photo commemorating the donations.
