FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer (DDF) is excited to announce its Inaugural South Florida Dream Fore A Cure Golf Tournament taking place on Friday, January 13, 2017 at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club. Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. and the tournament starts at 8:00 a.m. Entry fees include green fees, range balls, cart rental, breakfast, and the luncheon. Tournament contests include 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Team Score, Closest to the Pin, and the Longest Drive.
The day would not be possible without the leadership of Chair Jonathan Perrillo and his dedicated committee members: Michael Brin, Michael Ehren, David Fried, Stephen Greenberger, Evan Greenfield, John Griffin, and John Nash. The golf tournament is part of DDF's campaign to raise funds for stomach cancer research and support of patients and their families. Per cancer death, gastric cancer receives the least amount of federal funding of any cancer.
"It is exciting to be the Chair of our inaugural Golf Tournament. This tournament will become a very important annual event to support the mission of Debbie's Dream Foundation," said Jonathan Perrillo. "As a DDF Board member, it is great to witness the growth of the organization and the addition of a golf tournament. Thanks to the generosity of the many people who make it successful, we will be able to continue making a significant difference in contributing funding for stomach cancer research."
Cost for an individual player is $200 and $700 for a foursome. Ads and tributes in the event Program Book can also be purchased. Sponsorships are available and come with fun perks.
