CHN and CHF are teaming up to host their first “Golf ‘FORE’ Health” golf scramble.  Proceeds will go towards the purchase of a state-of-the-art 3D Breast Cancer Imaging System at Curry Medical Center in Brookings.  Cori Phillips, director of medical imaging at CHN said she is excited to be able to offer this technology because “3D mammography truly raises the bar in patient care. Using 3D mammography we are able to detect cancers earlier, with fewer false positives and less callbacks”.

The 18-hole tournament will be held Saturday, August 14, at Salmon Run golf course in Brookings.  

Cam Marlowe, one of the event organizers, indicated that things are coming together nicely and he is amazed at how many local businesses, foundation members, hospital auxiliaries, community members and employees have pitched in as sponsors, donors, players and volunteers towards this great cause.  Cam is “confident this tournament will be a great event for seasoned golfers as well as ‘duffers’ like him”.

If you would like to participate as a sponsor, player or volunteer, contact Cam at 208-761-7444 or Leslie at 541-373-3015.
