25th Annual Nancy Streber Memorial Golf Classic Breaks Fundraising Record for McLaren Hospice

In the 25th year honoring Nancy Streber’s memory, the Nancy Streber Golf Classic (NSGC) raised nearly $13,000 for McLaren Hospice—a fundraising record for the event. The NSGC, which took place this past May at Heather Hills Golf Course in Romeo, Mich., was founded by Dave Streber and his family to honor the memory of his mother, Nancy, and the care her father received as a McLaren patient.

“We are deeply honored to be the beneficiary of the Nancy Streber Golf Classic for an astounding 25 years,” said said Cindy Tomlinson, MSN, RN, vice president of hospice at McLaren Health Management Group. “We are incredibly grateful for and humbled by the Streber family and their support, as well as all the organizations and individuals who have supported the event and McLaren Hospice along the way.”

The 25th Annual Nancy Streber Memorial Golf Classic hosted 136 golfers from Michigan, Illinois, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Texas to keep Nancy’s memory alive and support individuals in hospice care today. All proceeds from the event help support the end-of-life care services and programs patients receive while in McLaren Hospice care. This year, the event was dedicated to the memory of Dave Streber’s lifelong friend, Robert “Paco” Klein, who passed away in December.

“We established this event as a way to honor and grieve the passing of my mother 25 years ago,” said Dave Streber. “This year, we honored my dear friend Robert with much the same feelings of loss and emotion in a way that celebrated his life.”

The event was sponsored at the Gold Level by the Tom Sustarich Family, Del Akers, and the Dean Wolfe Family. The event would also like to extend a special thanks to Heather Hills Golf Course, Melissa and Liam Hamilton, Evelina Correa, Chuck Mack, and Jenny Streber for their support.

“On behalf of everyone at McLaren Hospice, we extend a special thanks to the Streber family as well as the many sponsors, golfers, and volunteers who continue to support the patients in our care year after year,” said Tomlinson.

As a nonprofit organization, McLaren Hospice relies on the donations and community to help care for terminally ill patients, regardless of their ability to pay. While the outing has concluded, individuals can always donate to McLaren Hospice at www.mclaren.org/givetohospice.
