WARSAW — The Kosciusko County Cancer Care Fund, a local fundraising committee under the K21 Health Foundation, will be hosting its annual Golf Charity Fundraising event at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club on June 14.
Teams will have the opportunity to tee off via shotgun start at 8 a.m. or 1 p.m.
All funds raised through this event will go directly to reducing the financial challenges facing local Kosciusko County cancer patients and their families. “As a committee it’s been our mission to help ‘soften’ the financial burden for patients while they fight this terrible disease” said Jeff Wells, CCF Fundraising Committee Chair.
Event attendees and businesses will experience a day of fun on the links while making a difference for local cancer patients thanks to their team entry fee donation. The event will feature multiple Hole-in-One challenges for chances to win a car or a trip, as well as a chance to hit the green with a one-of-a-kind golf ball cannon.
It will be an amazing day to support local patients and families, raise some much-needed funds and honor the lives of those we have lost. “I feel like everyone, including myself, has a personal story that has intersected with cancer. Almost everyone I meet has a friend, family or colleague that has been affected by cancer in some way. It’s really great to be able to help make a difference and our committee feels incredibly passionate and dedicated to these families,” said Luke Baker, CCF Golf Committee Chair.
Last year, the CCF Golf Charity Fundraising event raised nearly $30,000 of the total $197,828 that the CCF raised to help support 113 Kosciusko County cancer patients. During the past 20 years, well over $2 Million has been raised by the CCF to help the people of Kosciusko County as they fight their cancer battles.
