The 6th Annual Hope Cup Golf Tournament has been rescheduled for Thursday, June 21, at Steelwood Country Club in Loxley. All proceeds from the tournament, presented by Springhill Toyota, will be used to fight melanoma and other skin cancers.
Last year’s tournament, organized by USA Mitchell Cancer Institute, raised almost $50,000 for the MCI Melanoma and Skin Cancer Endowment.
The Hope Cup is typically held in May each year, as May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. This year, however, it had to be rescheduled for June due to weather. Melanoma accounts for only 1 percent of all skin cancer cases, but is the most lethal, causing the greatest number of skin cancer deaths.
The golf tournament is a four-person scramble with putting contests, prizes on every hole and a survivor hole. Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m., with a golfer’s lunch at 11:00 a.m. and shotgun start at noon. An awards presentation will follow the tournament.
