Golf tourney for breast cancer held in Haines

HAINES - The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium WISEWOMAN and Breast and Cervical Health Programs are teaming up with Valley of the Eagles Golf Links in Haines to host the "Rally for a Cure" Summer Scramble Golf Outing at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11.

This golf tournament will raise 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. The event will also be used to promote the upcoming mobile mammogram van visit to Haines, Sept. 4-13.

The tournament's format is nine holes of golf with three golfers to a coed team (players can make their own teams or be assigned one). Every team member must use their tee ball twice. Winter rules apply. There is a prize for the longest putt. "A" level players must use the blue tees, men use the white, and women and children hit from the red markers.

The cost is $35 per golfer, with $20 of the fee going to Komen Foundation, $10 go for half-price green fees and $5 for prizes. There is a $25 fee for walkers and caddies. 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.

For more information, contact SEARHC WISEWOMAN Health Educator Betsy Van Burgh at (907) 766-6366, Pam Sloper of the SEARHC WISEWOMAN and Breast and Cervical Health Programs, or Kathy Pardee-Jones of Valley of the Eagles Golf Links at (907) 766-2401.
