Charity golf tournament honors loved ones

Marlborough – The Marlborough Country Club Women's Golf Association (WGA) hosted its second annual Charity Invitational Golf Tournament to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation July 17 at the Marlborough Country Club. All 72 golfers, men and women of varying levels, were encouraged to wear pink as they spent the day golfing, participating in activities such as “beat the pro,” bidding in a silent auction, and enjoying lunch.

A unique feature of the tournament is “Honor Alley” – 165 signs lining the fairway of the 18th hole. The signs honor what Anne Coffou, tournament chair and WGA president, calls “warriors and survivors” of cancer. The signs, in the shape of a golf ball on a pink tee, could be purchased in memory of loved ones who have lost their lives, in support of friends or family currently battling cancer, or in support of those who have survived it. In addition to forming “Honor Alley,” signs were scattered around the course.

“We'se delighted that we are able to do this; we really are honoring our warriors and survivors,” Coffou said.
