Calvert Hospice received a generous donation of $6,000 from the 15th annual Michael D. Schrodel Golf Classic held on July 20. The golf tournament was started 15 years ago by one of Michael’s fraternity brothers, Eric Dorman, and his widow Teresa Schrodel. The pair organized the event until this year when Teresa and Michael’s daughter Carmen took the reins. It was a successful event, boasting 22 teams, a putting contest, a hole in one contest, a silent auction with 30 items (including a Redskins’ helmet, gift certificate from Chesapeake Grille & Deli, and jewelry from Maertens Fine Jewelry & Gifts), and a double-your-money hole contest. Participants even had the opportunity to win a new Land Rover, although no one was successful this year!
Carmen received valuable help from her sorority, Tri Sigma; her sisters donated money and several came to help at the event. Many of Michael’s Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity brothers came to the event, a moving tribute to his memory.
Calvert Hospice is so thankful for the generosity of all who attended the Golf Classic and for the continued support of Teresa and Carmen Schrodel.
