FULTON, NY – The fight against breast cancer in Oswego County is something that members of Cold Springs Golf Course in Mannsville take very seriously.
Over the past five years the league has raised several thousand dollars in support of breast cancer awareness organizations.
The past 3 years, the members have decided to donate proceeds to Oswego County Opportunities’ Cancer Services Program.
OCO’s Cancer Services Program provides free breast, cervical and colon cancer screenings and diagnostic services to uninsured men and women aged 40-64 in Oswego County.
As a result of these free cancer screenings, many men and women have received life-saving screenings and treatment.
Cold Spring Golf Course continues that support this year as they host the fifth annual “Rally for the Cure” Golf Tournament.
Scheduled for Aug. 23, the four-person, captain and crew format tournament will be held at the Cold Springs Golf Course, 1941 Route 11 in Mannsville. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with tee off at 9 a.m. The tournament will be the same as last year, 18 holes of golf, best ball, captain and crew. Mulligans, skins, and new this year will be some special putting fun games. A grill, courtesy of Vella’s Supermarket, and a 50/50 raffle will be held.
“I am grateful that Arlene Bauer, Mary Alfrod, Lisa Bauer, Lisa Clark and Sheila Clark are again coordinating this golf tournament. It is rewarding to have these ladies recognize the work that we do, see the value that is has to our community, and welcome them into our program to join us in the battle against breast cancer in Oswego County,” said Carolyn Handville, coordinator of OCO’s Cancer Services Program. “On behalf of everyone involved, and those that we serve, I extend my sincerest appreciation for everyone involved with this tournament for their honorable commitment to join me in the fight against breast cancer and assist us to help serve the men and women throughout our community that would not obtain their screenings without our program’s existence.”
Participation in the tournament is $45 per person and includes 18 holes of golf, pull cart, hot dogs and a chicken BBQ.
