SPRING VALLEY — The Doug Hoffman fifth annual golf tournament was held June 21 at the Chapel Hill Golf Course in Princeton. The proceeds benefitted St. Margaret’s Hospice.

The family presented the Hospice department with a $1,800 donation in memory of Doug, who passed away in 2009. This brings the total proceeds derived from the family’s efforts to more than $5,000.

Hoffman, a former St. Margaret’s Hospice patient, succumbed to esophageal cancer. His family, in his memory, established this outing to bring attention to cancer in hopes that early diagnosis and treatment will prevent others from losing their fight.

Proceeds from the past golf outings have been directed to the hospice. This year, the monies will be directed to the new Esophageal and Colon Cancer Prevention Center, which opened at St. Margaret’s in June.
