Angels & Eagles Golf Classic July 29 Takes Annual Swing at Cancer
MINNEAPOLIS (July 10, 2013) — Angel Foundation will take a big swing at cancer Monday, July 29 at Minnesota Valley Country Club in Bloomington when it hosts the 11th annual Angels & Eagles Golf Classic.
The annual event is a key fundraiser for the Minneapolis-based nonprofit organization that is on track to provide $1 million this year alone in non-medical emergency financial assistance to adults with cancer and their families.
The popular golf tournament, which to date has raised more than $1 million for cancer patients, is a sellout each year, featuring 18 holes of golf on an exclusive, classically styled course, a golf clinic led by a Master PGA professional, barbecue lunch, awards, prizes, entertainment, dinner and more.
For Angel Foundation Founder Margie Sborov, who continues to chair the event each year, there’s no better way to spend a summer day. “It’s a fantastic day of golf,” she says. “Great golf for golfers, and great fun for all with prizes, contests, entertainment and a dinner program. Best of all, of course, is that we’re not only having fun, but raising much-needed money for those we serve.”
After golf, there will be a cocktail reception with live music, a silent auction and shopping. During dinner, there will be a program hosted by Mike Mussman, morning host on K102-FM. Brian Leighton of GB Leighton will also perform during the program.
Angel Foundation is now on track to provide a total of $4 million since 2001 in emergency financial assistance for adults in active treatment for cancer in the Twin Cities. The organization also provides education and support to families who have a parent with cancer.
