Texas Health Resources Foundation Golf Tournament Raises More Than $100,000
Despite early morning rains, 100 dedicated community members and long-time supporters gathered on October 14 for the Texas Health Resources Foundation Golf Tournament at Texas Star Golf Course in Euless, Texas. Thanks to the generosity of participants and sponsors, more than $100,000 was raised to support the Bernard C. Alger Cancer Fund.
In 22 years, the tournament has raised more than $2 million for the Bernard C. Alger Cancer Fund. The fund supports The Wellness for Life Mobile Health Program, a cancer prevention/early detection screening program, S.T.E.P.S. to Surviving Breast Cancer, an education and support program for those affected by breast cancer, and The Cancer Resource Center and Boutique, which offers wigs, scarves, camisoles and other items designed for those receiving cancer treatment.
Players competed in a four-person scramble format and contended against each other for course contests and overall first place and second place team prizes.
Top sponsors for the tournament included:
Balfour Beatty Construction
“All of us feel so blessed because this fund gives us the resources we need to create a quality cancer program,” said clinical education specialist Gayle Wilkins, who has worked within the cancer program since 1999.
The Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth cancer program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, which ensures patients will have access to the full scope of services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate, and support patients with cancer and their families.
