Swing away for awareness
Senior project benefits American Cancer Society

East Union High’s Amy Cross is organizing a scramble golf tournament for her senior project.
The four-person team event is still a few months away, but proceeds will go to a good cause.
“One hundred percent of the profits raised from the tournament will go to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer awareness,” she said.
Cross has been on the Lancer girls golf squad for the past four years.
Her grandmother is a survivor after being diagnosed with breast cancer about two years ago at age 88.
“You’re never too young or too old (to get breast cancer),” she added.
Nor is it just for women.
Cross, according to her research, discovered about 2,000 cases a year of men are diagnosed with breast cancer.
“My hope is to get a minimum of 50 golfers for this tournament,” she said, with the event scheduled for Feb. 7 at the Manteca Park Golf Course, starting at 8:30 a.m.
Entry fee for the “Breast Cancer Awareness Golf Tournament” is $75 per person. Included will be prizes along with a drawing.
Donations for the cause will also be taken that day.
Those willing to help out with a monetary contribution can also do so by contacting Amy or her mother, Missy, who is also her parent advisor, at (209) 823-8119.
