Irene women golfers tee off to battle cancer A field of 23 women played July 13 in the Rally for a Cure at Glenridge Golf Course in Irene, raising $370.

As part of the Rally for a Cure activities, a closest-to-the-pin prize was awarded on a designated par-3 rally hole. The prize was an Adams nine wood given by the rally event center.

Titleist golf balls bearing the pink ribbon breast cancer awareness symbol were awarded to every player who hit the green on the first swing. All players were given goodie bags containing tees, $10 AT&T calling cards and a pin symbolizing the rally ribbon with a club on it.

Every woman also signed up for a free one-year subscription to Golf for Women. The magazine covers all administrative costs of Rally for a Cure. White roses with pink ribbons were given to every woman there who has survived breast cancer or any form of cancer.

Many local businesses gave generously to the tournament for flag and door prizes: Girard Auction, Magic Touch Photography, Orr's Supply, First Premier Bank � Wakonda, T.J's Corner Store, Steffen�s Bar and Grill, Charlie�s Service, Pollman�s Excavating, Rederick Farms, Mark�s Machinery, Yankton Ag, Dick Abild Insurance, Hy-Vee of Vermillion, Wells Fargo bank � Irene, and Sorlein Electric.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the event, to Glenridge Golf Course, to those who donated prizes, and especially Rally for a Cure and Golf for Women magazine.

Rally for a Cure is the nation�s largest grassroots women�s golf program. This year marks the first time that the women of the Glenridge Golf Course have pledged their support and teed off against breast cancer.
