OB SPORTS GOLF MANAGEMENT TEAMS UP WITH THE PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION IN FIGHT AGAINST PROSTATE CANCER
A Dollar for Dads program debuts over Father’s Day weekend
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Fourteen OB Sports-managed golf clubs (listed below) are participating in the A Dollar for Dads fundraising drive taking place on Father’s Day weekend Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21, 2009. The participating clubs will add one dollar to their normal green fees (and/or collect additional donations). That extra dollar will directly support research leading to treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.
“The fact that prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed non-skin cancer in America should get everyone’s attention. But too many families are still being devastated by this disease,” said Phil Green, President of OB Sports Golf Management. “So we’re trying to raise awareness among all the dads out there while supporting the many organizations already working hard on a cure.”
