Survivors Golf for Prostate Cancer



    Golf Tournament Aims to Surpass 100K This Year!

    RICHMOND HILL, ON, June 13 /CNW/ - Tee off on Monday, June 18th, 2007 at
the Summit Golf and Country Club, for the second annual Survivors Prostate
Cancer Golf Tournament in support of prostate cancer research. Last year, the
tournament raised $100,000 for the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of
Canada; the goal this year is to increase that contribution.
    The event began two years ago when seven members of the golf club - all
prostate cancer survivors - got together for lunch and decided to take a stand
against prostate cancer. They invited other interested parties to support
their goal, and together they created The Survivors Prostate Cancer Golf
Tournament.
    This year's presenting sponsors are Edenview Investment Partnership and
Dominion Securities/The Harbour Group. The day will include a luncheon, 18
holes of golf, cocktail reception, silent auction and dinner. Dr. Robert
Bristow MD, PhD, FRCPC, Clinician Scientist at Princess Margaret Hospital and
Foundation Board member, will speak about the cause. All funds raised support
the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada and its goal is to raise
awareness and fund research into the prevention, treatment and cure of the
disease that affects 1 in 8 Canadian men in their lifetimes.
