Prince Frederick, MD – Family and friends once again gathered at Twin Shields Golf Club in Dunkirk to support the annual Michael D. Schrodel Golf Classic. Just over 13 years ago, Michael D. Schrodel passed away from cancer and left behind a daughter, Carmen and beloved wife, Teresa. In 2002 a charity golf event was organized to not only raise money but to also celebrate Michael’s life. 

“The Sigma Tau Gamma White Rose Alumni Association is very grateful for the support we’ve received from local businesses and residents of Calvert County for the past 13 years. So far, this event has helped us raise over $85,000 and 100% of our net proceeds have been donated to support three very good programs, Calvert Hospice being one of them. We look forward to future successful golf events and we will continue to support the Calvert Hospice organization and the people that work hard every day to make our world a better place,” stated Michael Vermillion, director of Events-Michael D. Schrodel Golf Classic

“We are so appreciative of this $2500 contribution and even more fortunate to have Teresa Schrodel as one of our board members,” said Brenda Laughhunn, executive director of Calvert Hospice. “Her support of our mission to provide the best care possible for patients and their families in our community who are facing a life-limiting illness is steadfast.”

“Carmen and I are humbled by the outpouring of support from our family, friends and business colleagues that have supported the Michael D Schrodel Golf Classic since 2002,” stated Teresa Schrodel.  Michael fought a brave battle and with Hospice care, was able to live his remaining days in the comfort of his home surrounded by his family and friends.  He was grateful for this care and wanted to give back to those that helped him during our family’s need.  Michael wanted us to ‘celebrate his life, not mourn it’, and the Golf Classic most certainly does so.”
