COOKEVILLE – Cookeville’s oldest charity tournament is back for its 39th year raising funds to help provide care to cancer patients at Cookeville Regional Medical Center (CRMC). The tournament honors the memory of both Anne Cameron, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1988, and Bobby Nichols, former golf pro and owner of Ironwood Golf Course, who passed away in 2008.
The Anne Cameron Golf Classic is scheduled for Saturday, June 14, at Ironwood Golf Course. Flights are scheduled for 7:30 a.m. with an afternoon flight handling any overflow. The format will be a four-man scramble. Contests and prizes will include longest drive, closest to the pin, and first, second and third place for each flight.
“The tournament is a lot of fun and we are proud that it helps with charitable care for cancer patients in honor of Anne,” said William Cameron of Cameron & Young Attorney’s and brother to Anne.
John Bell, executive director of the Foundation at CRMC, added, “The Anne Cameron Golf Classic is a great way for companies and civic groups to give back while having a great time. The funds raised at this tournament will have a huge impact on the lives of patients, and their families, relying on charitable care while dealing with cancer treatments.”
The Foundation at CRMC is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization and affiliate of CRMC. Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
