30A South Walton fore Second Annual Fore Her Golf Tournament on Oct 11Local charity Fore Her recently announced the Second Annual Fore Her Golf Tournament to raise funds for local women who are battling breast cancer and are struggling financially. The event will take place on October 11th, 2014 at Seascape Golf, Beach & Tennis Resort.

The day’s activities will include 18 holes of golf, an after-party, and a silent auction. All tournament participants will also receive a “swag bag” filled with gifts from event sponsors.

“After my mom, and my aunt each passed away from breast cancer, my family members in Michigan wanted to do something in memory of them,” said Amy Walsh, President and Founder of Fore Her, Inc. “Because a lot of my family members enjoy golf, they held their first golf outing in 2000, to celebrate the lives of my mom and my aunt. Therefore, I founded Fore Her, Inc. and am striving to continue the tradition of my family within this community by helping those fighting this disease locally.”

Since its inception, the tournaments have raised well over $85,000 in 14 years. Walsh continues that tradition here in the local community.

Tournament pricing is $75/person or $300/team of four players. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Check in begins at 8:00 am, with a shotgun tee off at 9:00 am.
