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 three years the league has raised several thousand dollars in support of breast cancer awareness organizations.
The past two 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 fourth annual “Rally for the Cure” Golf Tournament.
Scheduled for August 24 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 a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The tournament features men’s and women’s prizes for longest drive and closest to the pin, along with a special shootout.
“I am grateful that Arlene Bauer and the other ladies who are coordinating this golf tournament recognize the work that we do and see the value that is has to our community,” said Carolyn Handville, coordinator of OCO’s Cancer Services Program. “On behalf of everyone involved with the Cancer Services Program, and those that we serve, I extend my sincerest appreciation for each and 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 programs existence.”
Participation in the Rally for the Cure Golf Tournament is $35 per person and includes 18 holes of golf, pull cart, snacks and a chicken BBQ.
