Health and science stories fascinate freelance journalist Rich Holmes, who grew up in a medical family and worked as a newspaper reporter, copy editor, designer and newsroom manager. Enjoying food and drink and writing about them figure among his pastimes. As a volunteer organizer, he raised about $100,000 for research into FSH muscular dystrophy. He and his fiancé divide their time between Hyannis and Monson.
Past honorees of the Compass of Hope Gala, and others associated with the fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, gathered in Hyannis recently to meet this year’s guests of honor – medical honoree Molly Sullivan, MD, and community honorees, the Pendergast family. They will be officially recognized at the Compass of Hope Gala on Oct. 13 at the Oyster Harbors Club in Osterville.
