Each September, the Ptarmigan Ladies Golf Association (PLGA) hosts the Double Cup Golf Tournament to benefit our cancer patient and family assistance fund. Players come to the tournament in team costumes and decorated carts to enjoy an evening of golf, camaraderie and fundraising.

This year, the golfers celebrated the event’s 10th anniversary—along with the fact that their event has raised $44,000 over the past 10 years to help cancer patients and their families pay for expenses not covered by health insurance.

We extend our thanks to the PLGA for their support of our assistance fund. Through our community’s generosity, this fund helps hundreds of patients and their families each year, empowering them to focus on treatment and healing rather than worrying about finances.

This month, several local organizations are holding fundraisers for cancer patient assistance. View the most up-to-date list on our Community-Hosted Events page. We’re grateful to these businesses and their patrons—thank you!
