Wednesday, July 17, 2013

The first annual Buffalo Island Relay for Life Golf Tournament will be held Tuesday, Aug. 13, at Big Lake Country Club in Manila.

The three-person scramble will be $90 per team and all proceeds will go to the BI Relay for Life, American Cancer Society.

Chairman Brenda Matheny said she hopes to have a good turnout and invites teams to sign up.

"We also appreciate any business or individual who would like to sponsor a tee-box. Sponsors include Gold $100; Silver $75; and Bronze $50. We plan to have an honorary cancer survivor recognized each year at the tournament and this year's honorary survivor is John Edwards. Our goal in all of the events we sponsor is to help in the fight to find a cure for cancer."

Tee-off will be at 8:30 a.m. Registration will be from 7:30-8:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided and two mulligans will be available with entry fee.

"We want this to be a fun day of golf for a good cause," Matheny said.

"We will accept teams until tee-time," Hayden said.
