MERCERSBURG, Pa. – The Cottage Open Golf Tournament will be held Sunday, July 31, at Whitetail Golf Course, 11573 Blairs Valley Road.

Played in four-person scramble format, the tournament costs $70 per person and will begin with a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. A lunch will follow the tournament.

Proceeds benefit Chambersburg Hospital’s Hennessy Home where cancer patients receiving care at Summit Cancer and Hematology Services, and their adult family members, have access to temporary, affordable accommodations.

Mary Barbara Hennessy donated the Hennessy Home in 1999 to Chambersburg Hospital. It was Mrs. Hennessy’s wish to share her home with others facing difficult circumstances.

The tournament has been held annually to support the Hennessy Home since 2000. To date, the event has raised over $54,000.
