HAINES - The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium WISEWOMAN and Breast and Cervical Health Programs are teaming up with Valley of the Eagles Golf Links and Driving Range in Haines to host the "Rally For The Cure" summer scramble golf outing in August.
The "Rally For The Cure" golf tournament takes place starting at 10 a.m. on Aug. 9 at the Valley of the Eagles Golf Links and Driving Range. It raises money for Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation, the nation's largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to curing breast cancer at every stage. In addition to raising money for the Komen Foundation, the event will be used to promote the upcoming mobile mammogram van visit to Haines from Aug. 28 to Sept. 10.
The cost is $35 per golfer, with the fee broken down so $20 of the fee goes to Komen Foundation, $10 goes for half-price green fees and $5 for prizes. There is a $25 fee for walkers and caddies, with $20 of the fee going to the Komen Foundation and $5 for prizes. While it isn't necessary to pre-register, it is appreciated so the golf course knows how many tee times to set aside for the tournament. A full-service pro shop with club and cart rentals is available, and out-of-town teams are encouraged.
