Many of you are aware that the local Cancer Fund is a cause very near to the hearts of Dave and Pat Gardner, and for years the Scramble 4 a Cure has been a a great fundraiser for this charity. This weekend marks the 14th annual golf tournament benefiting our Broadus Cancer Fund.
The raised and donated funds from this charity all go to people in our area that have been affected by cancer. The money often helps cover medical and travel costs incurred during treatment and so often people who at one time receive funds, end up becoming donors themselves in later years. Since its inception, over $220,000 has been given back to touch the lives of our neighbors and loved ones! Last year alone, 20 different families each received $1,200. The volunteers and recipients of the Cancer Fund are continually overwhelmed by the incredible support shown in our small community.
The Scramble 4 a Cure is surly one of the premier events held each year at the Rolling Hills Golf Course and, like always, the 36 tee box sponsors this year have shown amazing support. The tournament takes place this Friday and Saturday, August 3rd and 4th. Each day will be played as an individual tournament with 18 teams on Friday and 20 on Saturday. Lunch and snacks are provided each day by Tracy Vail and Saturday morning rolls by Tammy Schoenbeck. The Rolling Hills greenskeepers and clubhouse staff go to great lengths to ensure the course is in tip top shape and that everyone involved has an incredible weekend.
We hope to see you there!
