Pocono Farms Country Club Raises Dollars for Hospice Services

On July 24th, Pocono Farms Country Club Association’s Swim Team held their annual “Laps for Cancer” event. The swimmers and supporters raised over $2,000 that will be donated to hospice services located in the Lehigh Valley Pocono Hospital. This event was first started in the loving memory of Mary Lou DeCroti, a pool staff member. Since its inception, the Pocono Farms Country Club Swim team has raised over $10,000.00 for Hospice Services.

This event was another huge success! Pocono Farms would like to thank all of the participants and organizers of this event!
