LITTLE COMPTON, RI— Warwick-based Thundermist Health Center raised nearly $23,000 at its annual charity golf tournamentTuesday, Sept. 17, at Sakonnet Golf Club.

The golf tournament, one of the non-profit community health center’s signature fundraising events, kicked off with music from local bagpipers. Golfers enjoyed the view of Sakonnet.

“We had an amazing turnout and incredible weather on the course,” said Jeanne LaChance, President/CEO of Thundermist. “It’s always remarkable to see the support first-hand.
