Avery Grace Kargel Golf Tournament, benefiting The Fetal Center
For a second year in a row, The Fetal Center at Children’s Memorial Hermann
Hospital was selected to be the sole beneficiary of the 9th Annual Avery Grace
Kargel Memorial Golf Tournament. Last year, the golf tournament raised more
than $15,000 for The Fetal Center.
The Avery Grace Kargel Memorial Golf Tournament is an annual community charity event founded by Heather and Jason Kargel in honor of their late daughter, Avery Grace, who passed away in 2006 as a newborn. The memorial golf tournament was established that same year to raise money and support palliative care programs in the Greater Houston area.
A part of the multidisciplinary team at The Fetal Center, the Chronic and Palliative Services (CAPS) program is a fully integrated
palliative care program with dedicated specialties including neonatology, nursing, social work, Child Life specialists and chaplaincy services. The team aims to provide families with honest communication and a comfortable and positive environment to create lasting memories and meet the goals each family has for their final moments with their child. The CAPS Program is part of the continuum of care for patients and families at The Fetal Center that have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or life-limiting condition.
This year’s tournament, benefiting The Fetal Center, will be held on Saturday, December 6. 2014. For more information on how to participate in the tournament or to learn about ways to give to The Fetal Center, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
