27th Annual Wentworth-Douglass Charity Classic
Golf FORE a Great Cause!
Join us as we celebrate the 27th Annual Wentworth-Douglass Charity Classic on June 22, 2021. This event raises critical funds to support the Women & Children’s Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, a Massachusetts General Hospital community hospital. Here, thousands of Seacoast area families receive care every year. Your partnership ensures valuable programs and services are available to give our youngest patients a healthy start.
In 1994, the Wentworth-Douglass Charity Classic was created to honor the memory of a special child, Pete Gabarro, who lost his battle with cancer. Today, 27 years later, it has raised nearly $2 million dollars and touched the lives of thousands of babies, children and families throughout the Seacoast region.
Registration fees include round of golf with cart, lunch on the course and post-tournament dinner along with complimentary gifts for all golfers.

Each year, patrons of the Wentworth-Douglass Charity Classic rally together to support a strategic need in the Women & Children’s Center. In 2020, the tournament’s Fund-A-Need Program raised $20,000, a 30% increase over 2019, to establish a TeleNewborn Consult Program for the Women and Children’s Center. These funds matched a $25,000 gift from the Patricia C. Adams, MD Endowment Fund for Children’s Care to bring this new technology to our community.
The TeleNewborn Consult Program allows clinical staff at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s Birth Center to communicate vital signs and conduct an exam of the newborn while consulting virtually with a neonatology expert at Massachusetts General Hospital. This new program is helping babies who would normally need a higher level of care to be able to stay with their family and be treated at Wentworth-Douglass, under the close watch of Mass General neonatology experts and Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s clinical staff.
To learn more about the TeleNewborn Consult Program, please see video below.
Coming soon! Keep your eyes open for the announcement of the 2021 Fund-A-Need priorities and learn how you will make an impact.

Raising funds to help the youngest patients in our community has been at the heart of Wentworth-Douglass’s golf tournament from the beginning. The Women and Children’s Center offers a full range of medical, surgical, diagnostic and therapeutic services for children, from infancy through adolescence. As a Baby Friendly designated hospital, we welcome more than 1,300 babies each year, making us the most popular birth center on the Seacoast. Our expert, compassionate team of OB/GYNs, midwives, pediatric specialists, lactation consultants, child life specialists, social workers, and others offers truly comprehensive care for moms, babies and families in our community.
