What’s more fun than golfing on a Monday?

Golfing on a Monday AND raising money for local families facing cancer.

That’s what Angel Foundation will do Monday, July 28, at Minnesota Valley Country Club in Bloomington when it hosts the 12th annual Angel & Eagles Golf Classic.

The annual event is a key fundraiser for the Minneapolis-based nonprofit organization that, since 2001, has provided more than $4 million in non-medical emergency financial assistance to local adults with cancer and their families and has helped more than 22,000 people through its programs.

The popular golf event, which to date has raised more than $1 million, 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 and a silent auction. 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.
