Golfers form double-team for Rally for the Cure Tourney

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

The Cherokee Village Ladies 18-Hole Golf Association has teamed up with the Ladies of the Course at Eagle Mountain in Batesville to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The Rally for the Cure Tournament is scheduled for Oct. 10 at the South Course in Cherokee Village with a tee time of 9 a.m.

A group picture will be taken at 8:30 a.m., before the tourney's shotgun start at 9 a.m.

Format of the event is a two-lady scramble, limited to the first 50 teams.

Entry fee is $60 for each player, and is tax deductible, according to event co-chair Jan Haney.

"This tournament has been great to co-chair with Dianne Lamberth from Batesville," said Haney "We hope to make this an ongoing partnership and a great tournament for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and for our golf league. We are alternating tournament sites, and next year it will be held at The Course at Eagle Mountain in Batesville. This is the first time we have tried anything like this, joining forces, but we think it will be fabulous."

The Rally events (golf) started in 1996 with a mission of emphasizing the early detection in the successful treatment of breast cancer and to support the mission of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

In 2006, over $7 million was raised nationwide through rally events, with over $1 million staying locally in Arkansas.

Over $30 million has been raised since 1996.
