Alliance takes a swing at cancer

FI-golfTake a whack at breast cancer on June 17 when the Greenwich based Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) will hold a co-ed golf outing at Brae Burn Country Club in Purchase, N.Y.

The event will be co-hosted by Bill Evans and Scott Shannon.

A Greenwich resident, Mr. Evans is a 12-time Emmy award winner, New York Times best-selling author and senior meteorologist for Channel 7 Eyewitness News.

For the last 20 years, Mr. Shannon has co-hosted Scott & Todd in the Morning Show with his partner, Todd Pettingill, on 95.5 WPLJ and is host of the nationally syndicated True Oldies Channel.

“Many of us have a family member or know of someone who has been touched by breast cancer. Scott and I, through your help, wish to find a cure and in the meantime help those and their families who are in need,” Mr. Evans said. “Join us for a day that we can celebrate the survivors and remember the ones we lost, like my beloved mother, Nadine.”

Registration begins at 11 a.m., with a shotgun start at 12:30.

The cocktail reception will open at 5 p.m. with awards and prizes with Mr. Evans and Mr. Shannon at 6 for first and second net, first and second gross, longest drive and closest to the pin.

Tickets are $450 per single (with pairing by pro) $850 per twosome (with pairing by pro) and $1600 per foursome. Sponsorships are also available, and tickets for the cocktail hour alone are $150 per person.

The format of the tournament is best two balls of foursome and will feature a light breakfast, lunch a la (golf) cart and a robust cocktail hour complete with awards and a silent auction courtesy of Eagel Sports with signed memorabilia from celebrities like Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle and well as Eli Manning, Joe Namath and Henrik Lundqvist. Pepe Motors has donated a prize for the hole-in-one.

All proceeds will benefit the Breast Cancer Alliance in support of a breast surgical fellowship at a top medical institution in the tri-state area.
