Tee times filling up for first Komen Golf Capital Classic

CROSSVILLE — Tee times are starting to fill up for the inaugural Susan G. Komen Golf Capital Classic, set for Sept. 29 at Bear Trace Golf Course.

Proceeds of the tournament will benefit Komen Upper Cumberland, which serves Cumberland and 13 surrounding counties with grants for screening, education and support for those affected by breast cancer.

The two-person scramble includes a putting contest with the winner having a chance to sink a 50-foot putt for a prize worth thousands. Other prizes include hole-in-one, long drive, accuracy drive and closest to the pin prizes, and one lucky player will have a chance to win $1 million.

In addition to the wonderful prizes, grand champions of the tournament will be presented champions' blazers during the awards ceremony.

The night before, players and the public are invited to a kick-off event at the Bear Trace Club House. There will be an auction of unique golf items and numerous original works of art by area artists.

The entry fee is $150 per player and includes greens fees, a new pair of FootJoy golf shoes, and food and beverages during the tournament.

Komen Upper Cumberland currently supports the free mammogram program at Cumberland Medical Center, a program that has served more than 240 women who are over 40 and have no insurance. In addition to the free mammograms, the grant supports education efforts to let women know how important regular screenings are in the fight to end breast cancer. Seventy-five cents of every dollar raised remains in the Upper Cumberland to support this and other grants.

Sponsors for the first Susan G. Komen Golf Capital Classic include Peak Fitness, Peg Broadcasting, Cancun Mexican Restaurant, Crossville Heating and Cooling, Cumberland Computing, Mountain Motors, GiGi's Boutique, Rocky Top 10 Cinema, AC Electric and Refrigeration, Salon Vintage, The Beef and Barrel Restaurant, Cumberland Mountain Lawn and Landscaping, Crossville Hydraulics and Crossville Ceramics.

The tournament committee is also offering a chance for the community to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure and honor loved ones who have battled cancer, with special plaques in memory of loved ones or in honor of survivors. Those names will also be on display at the first and 18th hole during the tournament, and plaques will be kept on display at the CMC Breast Cancer Center during the year. Contact Lewis at (931) 335-0501 or (931) 200-0553, or email martylewis60@yahoo.com to reserve a space on the memorial and survivor plaques and banners.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is dedicated to ending breast cancer and is the largest non-government funder of breast cancer research. The organization has been a part of major advancements in diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer for the past 25 years.
