golfThe Peter J. Feeney Memorial Golf Tournament, a Cumberland County Government annual tradition since 1994, took place on June 17 at Spring Meadows Golf Course in Gray, Maine. With over 70 people participating, the tournament raised over $1,500 for the Ronald McDonald House of Portland.

Named after the late Cumberland County Commissioner Peter Feeney, the event has raised nearly $100,000 since it began.

“It is such a great tournament,” said Assistant Director of Facilities and tournament organizer Mike Brown. “With over 17 teams competing in the shotgun style tournament, it was a fun-filled morning for a great cause.”

The Ronald McDonald House of Portland is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable, safe and supportive temporary home-like housing to families of serious ill children receiving care at nearby hospitals and medical facilities.

“We were honored to be this year’s beneficiary,” said Alicia Milne, Development Manager, Ronald McDonald House of Portland. “The House operation depends on our strong volunteer network and funding from the community. The support helps us continue to provide comfortable, affordable services to families in time of need.”

“We are grateful for all of the help from our sponsors,” Brown said. “It’s because of them that we are able to have such a wonderful event each year.”
