The Drive Against Prostate Cancer golf tournament for 2011 has come and gone. The event held at International Country Club in Fairfax, VA was a resounding success. The course was in great shape and the ICC staff was extremely helpul. The weather Gods listened to our prayers and provided a glorious day...a bit on the warm side for late April, but no one complained. The tournament continues to grow and we are truly making a difference in our fight against prostate cancer in support of ZERO - The Project to End Prostate Cancer.
But it is the tournament sponsors and the people who participate that make the event what it is each and every year. To all of you.....my deepest gratitude and MANY THANKS!!!!!
With everyone's support, the tournament mulligan "program" raised $2,200. Thanks to Shane Ferguson, our long drive champion, and the Tee to Green Challenge we raised another $800. Thanks again Shane!!!! To top it all off, each of the win, place, show teams for the tournament generously contributed back all of their winnings totalling another $1,400. In all with tournament sponsors and individual donations, we have raised nearly $50,000 thus far.
It's not too late though!!! You can still donate to the Drive Against Prostate Cancer by visiting www.zerocancer.org/events/pennies-for-prostates. Every dollar counts in this important cause in men's health. Please help us make a difference.
