The Laurel Ladies Golf Association hosted its fourth annual Swinging for a Cure golf tournament on June 29, at the Laurel Golf Club. This tournament was a fund raiser for the St. Vincent Foundation EVA Project. This project supports the Foundation’s mobile mammogram coach, which serves a 300-mile radius around Billings. It travels to over 60 sites, many which have no medical facilities available. Since 2010 it has served over 25,000 women and has diagnosed 115 patients with breast cancer. Getting annual screenings saves lives, and this has been a great benefit for the women in our area, organizers said.

A total of 45 golfers played in the tournament and raised $1,225 for this cause. Thanks go out to the local businesses that donated prizes including Mitchell Golf, Laurel Golf Club Pro Shop, Vue and Brew, The Yogurt Shop, Plantasia, Western Security Bank, Bottom Line Accounting, Flex Family Health, Redneck Pizza, Main Street Perk of Laurel, and Reimer’s Tutoring Service. Thanks go out to all of the club members who generously donated prizes.

The format played was a two-person scramble. The men’s team competition was won by Bryan Stewart and Jim King with a score of 63. There was a tie for second place with a score of 65 by the teams of Randy Michael/Jack Brilz and Terry Caekaert/Eli Caekaert. The women’s team competition was won by Kass Crawford and Lisa Reimer with a score of 66. Joyce Pulley and Barb Grubbs took second with 72. Lulu McQueen and Marcia Hafner took third with 74. There was a tie for 4th place with a score of 75 by the teams of Tracey Michael/Therese Dickey and Luann Engh/Dee Baxter.
