ALTON — A beautiful day and the community’s generosity made for a successful outing June 6 at the 16th annual Saint Anthony’s Foundation Annual Charitable Golf Tournament.
The tournament at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course raised $89,565 for the hospital’s cancer services.
The tournament is hosted by OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation and included appearances by the Cardinals’ Fred Bird, meteorologist Mike Roberts and St. Louis Blues alumni Terry Yake, Mike Zuke and Larry Patey, as well as Blues Account Executive Kyle Worman.
The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis and the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George also were on hand for a smile, a prayer and took to the links themselves.
“The community support was definitely felt at this year’s event,” said Lee McRaven, annual fund coordinator for OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation. “It’s so wonderful to have over 50 businesses and community members supporting the event, and helping to give hope to our family, friends and neighbors fighting cancer.”
During the past 16 years, the tournament has raised more than $989,500 for the OSF Saint Anthony’s Cancer Center of Excellence.
