TOLEDO - On July 13, area golfers will hit the course at Heather Downs Country Club to participate in the third annual "Thanks for the Mammories" golf outing to benefit the Northwest Ohio Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.
The golf outing will include 18 holes of golf, skins, a 50/50 raffle, and prizes. The cost is $300 per team or $75 per individual if registered and paid by June 15; $340 per team or $85 per person thereafter, and there will be a men and a women's division.
Registration starts at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9, and a typical scramble format is planned.
Lunch and a silent auction will follow. Golfers can bid on items like tickets to Sea World Orlando, jewelry from Alan Miller Jewelers, autographed sports memorabilia, a basket of microbrew beers and a basket of wine from Heidelberg Distributing Co., and more.
"From a personal standpoint, I cheered when my mother - who does not have health insurance - was able to get her very first mammogram at age 56 thanks to a free mammogram day at Bay Park Community Hospital funded by the Northwest Ohio Affiliate of Susan G Komen," said Melissa Cogar, an Oregon, Ohio native who is operations and volunteer manager at the local Komen organization and organizer of the golf outing.
"When her results came back abnormal, all of her additional follow-up visits and tests were covered by Komen. She had a benign cyst, thank goodness.
"Our local affiliate makes sure that women have access to a potentially lifesaving service despite financial obstacles."
All of the net proceeds will be donated to the local Komen affiliate to help the organization provide quality care for all and to energize science to find cures for breast cancer.
