The tournament, in its 16th year, is a way to raise money to help the ACS fight cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.

Tee time will be at 1 p.m., and the cost will be $400 per four-person team for green and cart fees and lunch.

Winners of each division will advance to the ACS State Championship on Aug. 21 at the Dancing Rabbit Golf Club in Philadelphia.

“This is a great opportunity for golfers to do what they love to do while helping the fight against cancer,” said Paige McCardle, development representative for the ACS.

So far eight teams have signed up and the event has a capacity for 22 teams.

Last year’s tournament raised $8,000, and McCardle said this year’s goal has been increased to $10,000.

“We’d love to have more teams sign up. They can even come out the day of and sign up,” she said.
