Mac Campbell, Jr., Chairman of Bladen We Care, paid tribute to the life and memory of Dr. Bruce Phillips, a charter member of the organization on Thursday during the 26th annual golf tournament at Vineyard Golf at White Lake.
Campbell ask Ms. Nancy Philips to join him as he announced that, after consultation with local hospital officials, Bladen We Care would purchase 4 geriatric chairs to be placed in the waiting room with proper signage that the chairs were in memory of Dr. Phillips.
Dr. Phillips recently died after a lengthy illness.
Ms. Phillips then presented a contribution to Bladen We Care. She said he loved Bladen We Care and loved paying golf and you should “never get in front of him on a Friday afternoon,’ as he headed to the golf course.
Campbell gave a brief update of the past year. Bladen We Care provided nearly 250 grants totaling nearly $50,000 over the past 12 months.
He pointed out that Bladen We Care operates with volunteers only and has been in the business helping Bladen County residents for the past 26 years.
