The Hole Out For A Cure Golf Tournament was held in Peoria, IL on September 8th. Each year we are so impressed and amazed at the local support of family, friends and area businesses in ways they contribute to make the event such a success. This was the 7th year of Hole Out For A Cure which has raises approximately $25,000 each year. The funds are raised through event registration, silent auction items, raffle items donations and the generosity of the Peter's family matching dollar for dollar what is raised by the silent auction.
Rick Peters, founder of the event, has found such joy in being able to pair his drive for an FA cure and passion for golf into one event. What started out as a small way to meet the demands of friends and family's to contribute to FA has grown into a annual event that has raised close to $150,000 to date. The tournament is full of friendly competition, hole prizes and good fun. To date, each event has been one of the most beautiful days of the summer. But nothing can compare to the kindness of a community and their eagerness to donate to a cause for a man that inspires them on a daily basis.
