Golf scramble for ALS hits a hole in one

The HOPE-JG Fights ALS Golf Scramble held Aug. 29 at the Woodlands in Falmouth was a huge success. The charity had 144 slots to be filled and they filled each and every one.

“It was a beautiful day and we raised a lot of money that will help families with loved ones who suffer from ALS and have special needs,” said Linda Walker
Gregoire, the charity’s co-founder. “We’re already looking forward to our 8th Annual Scramble next year.”

Gregoire and her husband, John, founded HOPE-JG to help families of those living with ALS.
