The committee thanks all the players that enjoyed a day of golf and fun, while supporting the mission of the Upper Cumberland affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, to fight breast cancer.

The tournament would not be possible without the support of its sponsors, Crossville Heating and Cooling, Rocky Top 10 Cinema, Dr. Calley Jo Elsea of Cloudland Dental, Cumberland Medical Center, Honey's Market, 19th Hole at Lake Tansi, Stonehaus Winery, AC Electric, Crossville Ceramics and Perfect Party Rentals.

The Komen Upper Cumberland affiliate serves thousands of women and men in 14 counties as the primary and local funding source for programs that provide low-cost or free screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and breast cancer treatment to medically under-served Upper Cumberland residents, and provide support services before, during and after breast cancer treatment. The affiliate utilizes 75 cents of every dollar raised to fund vital local breast health services, and the remaining 25 cents of every dollar to national research to find the cures. Since 2006, Komen Upper Cumberland has invested more than $530,000 into its annual community grants program.
