Staff Report

A gesture of appreciation by Eleanor Soltner’s family and friends turned into a major event and significant contribution for Delaware Hospice at the 1st Annual Eleanor Soltner Memorial Golf Outing on Wednesday, August 17th, at Shawnee Country Club in Milford to benefit the Delaware Hospice Center.

Eleanor Soltner, who sadly passed away in January 2011, was an avid golfer and 9-Hole Club Champion at Shawnee Country Club. As her illness progressed, she was admitted to Delaware Hospice and spent some days at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford.

Peggy Dolby, Associate Director of development, thanked participants during the Awards Banquet. “Frank Soltner and Bob Burd approached me about a small golfing event to acknowledge Eleanor and her love of golf and to show appreciation for her care at the Delaware Hospice Center. However, this group of individuals can’t really do ‘small.’ The small golf outing turned into a huge success, raising $15,000 to benefit Delaware Hospice’s patients and families.”

Dolby praised the participants and committee members, “Support from your golfing community was overwhelming. This was an amazing group of people, and I have benefited from working with them and getting to know them.”

Golf Committee member, Bob Burd, expressed appreciation to the large number of sponsors who contributed to the success of the event and said, “This was a great tribute to Eleanor.”
