Craig women rally on golf course to support cancer cause
Rally for the Cause tourney brings in $1,500 for Moffat County Cancer Society
People on the links Wednesday had one thought in common: think pink.
The Rally for the Cause Ladies Golf Tournament raised $1,533 for Moffat County Cancer Society in its midweek event at Yampa Valley Golf CourseYampa Valley Golf Course..
The annual benefit saw 29 women turn out to show their support, all wearing some form of pink as they teed off on the grounds.
The number of players stayed the same as last year, said organizer Susan Utzinger.
“It was a small amount of people, but there was a lot of gusto out there, and we made a nice amount of money,” she said. “All the girls dressed in pink, it looked so good against the greens.”
The foursome of Christy Rolando, Terresa White, Patty Bruchez and Susan Nicholson were the top team, while many more of those who participated took home a variety of door prizes, such as Angela Doane, who won a quilt donated by local artisans.
“That was really fun to give it to her, she was ecstatic about that,” Utzinger said.
Sisters Linda Showalter, of Craig, and Mary Anne Harrison, of Vernal, Utah, were among those who were ready for a fun-filled day of 18 holes.
Robinson said she’s played in Rally for the Cause several times, drawn back to YVGC.
“It’s a nice course, it’s just beautiful,” she said.
The two of them also took the day as a bit of a tribute to friends and family who have been affected by cancer. Harrison said she has two friends who are currently in remission, while Showalter has had two of her best friends pass away from the disease.
“I think cancer is something that touches everyone,” Showalter said.
However, both of them also were focused on enjoying the day and the company.
“It’s just a great day out with the girls,” Showalter said.
