4th Annual Progress for Prostate Golf Tournament Takes Place in July
For the fourth year, Cripple Creek Golf & Country Club will host the Progress for Prostate Golf Tournament to take place Thursday, July 19, 2007. The event will benefit Beebe Medical Center's Free Prostate Screening and Community Awareness program, currently held during September for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
"Many of us on the committee appreciate the importance of early cancer detection firsthand and are grateful for the wonderful community support for this event," explains Bob Davis, Event Chairperson and prostate cancer survivor.
"Over $55,000 has been raised from the tournament to date and we hope to have another successful event for this important cause, combating a disease that takes the lives of over 30,000 men each year. Early screening can help to prevent this devastating loss," he says.
The tournament begins at 8 a.m. with a continental breakfast and a four-person scramble, followed by lunch. The registration fee is $125 per person, or $500 per a team of four players, and includes the following for each participant: two Mulligans, Longest Drive contest, Closest to Pin contest, Hole in One contest (chance to win a new car), and a Putting contest, which has a $5,000 prize. The event also will feature a silent auction with many valuable items!
