Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of children in this country.”
The 5th Annual Alexa Brown Memorial Golf Outing will take place on Saturday, June 27th at Sleepy Hollow Golf Course in Clyde. Our office wants to share this cause with all of our readers as we strongly support the families of the Clyde Cancer Cluster. We encourage readers to golf for a good cause and honor Alexa Brown and her courageous fight against childhood cancer.
The proceeds from the Alexa Brown Memorial Golf Outing help to support a scholarship to begin with Alexa’s 2016 graduating class. Those interested in participating can sign up by calling Sleepy Hollow at 419.547.0770 to submit their team of four for the golf outing.
