Save The Date for the 17th Annual DW Golf Tournament to be held on October 13, 2016.
Allegacy Federal Credit Union is proud to host the 17th Annual DW Benefit Golf Tournament at Bermuda Run Country Club in Bermuda Run, NC on Thursday, October 13, 2016. To date, the tournament has provided nearly $760,000 to Cancer Services, Inc., a local United Way agency established “to enhance the quality of life for those living with cancer, and to provide the gift of life through education.” The agency serves cancer survivors with any type of cancer and offers services and programs at no cost to cancer survivors and their families.
In 1998, three Allegacy employees were diagnosed with breast cancer and at about the same time the CEO and President lost a close friend to ovarian cancer. The following year, Allegacy decided to host a golf tournament in an effort to increase awareness of the importance of early detection of these cancers and raise funds to support Cancer Services, Inc. The primary way to battle breast and ovarian cancers is through early detection, thus the tournament was named "DW" which stands for "Don’t Wait”. Fifteen years later, many of our active and retired employees, their family members and friends, and credit union members continue to be touched in some way by these cancers. We have seen first-hand, the battles that these ladies endured; many have survived the battle, yet some have not.
We invite you to be a part of this important event! By golfing, sponsoring, or making a donation, your contribution will ensure an appreciable amount is donated to Cancer Services, Inc.
Sponsorship & Golfer Registration is open.
