Entry fee is $80 per player. It is open to the public. Entry deadline is July 10, and golfers can call the pro shop (786-4430) or sign up at the clubhouse.

The golf event is one of three primary fund-raisers for the Cancer Alliance and is sponsored by WDBC-WYKX radio and the Radio Results Network.
