It was a beautiful day for the 26th Annual American Cancer Society Golf Tournament held at La Floresta RV Park in Mercedes. There was a total of 57 golfers, from beginners to those with advanced skills, who participated in the tournament.
We all know someone who is or has been affected by cancer. The purpose of this event is to raise funds and awareness of cancer, and we congratulate all the survivors. Through golf fees and other miscellaneous donations, over $1,600 was raised this year. This brings La Floresta to a total of about $52,000 raised by the La Floresta family during the past 26 years. We pray our donation will help speed up a cure.
Team #7 won the tournament and consisted of the following golfers: Brian Walters, Ontario, Canada; Polly Webb, Frisco, Texas; David Martin; Kay Haverland, Babbitt, Minnesota; Ralph Nordine, Farmington, Minnesota; Dickie Hlady, Manitoba, Canada; and Lynda Howe, Manitoba, Canada.
