Golf tourney raises money for Augusta Health Breast Cancer Fund

Earhart PresentationIngleside Resort, the Eagles Aerie 608, and the Augusta Health Foundation sponsored the Jeff Earhart Memorial Golf Tournament on October 4 to support Augusta Health’s Breast Cancer Fund.

Ninety-six golfers turned out on a chilly morning to raise over $2,000 for this cause—100% of which will go to support the care and treatment of breast cancer patients. The tournament was held in memory of Jeff Earhart, whose family is pictured here. Jeff was a beloved member of the community who lost his life last winter. His mother, Mary Ellen, who is an RN at Augusta Health, said that Jeff always wore his pink ribbon with pride during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
