As of Sunday’s tournament, over $23,000 has been raised with proceeds benefitting CARE’s free community outreach services for children with disabilities; pediatric developmental and preventative screenings; therapeutic recreation programs; and child safety initiatives that prevent disabilities and fatalities from accidental injuries.
Kids & Cancer Benefit and Marshall Insurance Services were course sponsors; and CNB Bank, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Greg and Cherie Booth – in memory of Ashley Booth Griffin, and Northwest Bank were flight sponsors. Four other businesses sponsored half-flights, including B & T Contractors, Inc., Bob Cummins Construction Company, HUB International, and Small Town Girl Boutique. In total, over 160 donors, businesses and organizations provided sponsorships and in-kind donations of prizes and other services to support the tournament. Thirty-one teams comprised of 124 golfers made up the field.
Each year CARE provides distinct services to improve the lives of children of all abilities in McKean County and the surrounding region. Events like the annual golf tournament make these services and programs possible.
