LONGMEADOW, Massachusetts –JGS Lifecare hosted its 41st Annual Frankel-Kinsler Classic Day of Tournaments at Twin Hills Country Club in Longmeadow, Massachusetts recently. Drawing more than 200 guests to golf, card-playing tournaments, and a celebratory awards dinner, the event raised more than $115,000 to support senior care at The Leavitt Family Jewish Home, Ruth’s House Assisted Living, Sosin Center for Rehabilitation, Wernick Adult Day Health Care, Spectrum Home Health and Hospice Care, and Genesis House.

“We’re overwhelmed by the tremendous show of support from businesses and individuals throughout Western Massachusetts, said JGS Vice President of Development and Communications Susan Halpern. “Event proceeds will enrich programming and services for the more than 400 people cared for each day across the JGS Lifecare family of services, as well as support staff skill and career advancement through the funding of educational scholarships.”
