Proceeds from the tournament will benefit Easter Seals, MDA, St. Jude, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Leukemia Lymphoma Society and the Oklahoma Brain Tumor Foundation. In addition to the golf tournament on Tuesday, a silent auction and dinner will be held at Riverwind Casino the Monday evening before the tournament with all proceeds going to benefit these same organizations.
“We support these charities because of the great work they do in our communities and because a great percentage, if not all, of their fundraising efforts end up going to support patients, children and research,” commented HAC’s CEO, Darryl Fitzgerald.

Komen’s Race for the Cure is in its 20th year of the fight against breast cancer and the Oklahoma Brain Tumor Foundation is in its 14th year of providing support for families and patients who have been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
