CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Chambersburg Hospital’s Hennessy Home is getting a new roof and some other needed repairs thanks in part to support from the Cottage Pub and Restaurant’s Cottage Open Golf Tournament.
The late Mary Barbara Hennessy donated her family home on Seventh Street to the Chambersburg Hospital in 1999 to benefit cancer patients.
It was Mrs. Hennessy’s wish for the home to provide temporary affordable lodging for out-of-town patients receiving care at Summit Cancer and Hematology Services, an affiliate of Summit Health, so they don’t have to travel.
The Hennessy Home has four furnished bedrooms available for patients and their adult family members, several common living areas, and a fully functional kitchen and a laundry room. In addition to patient accommodations, the home has been used for cancer support group meetings.
This year the Annual Cottage Open Golf Tournament will take place July 26 at Whitetail Golf Course. The Cottage has held its annual event to support the Hennessy Home since 2000 and has raised more than $50,000.
