SARATOGA SPRINGS — Upcoming golf tournament to benefit LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is looking for help from the community.
Kelli Prestigiacomo recently graduated from the LIVESTRONG program at the Saratoga YMCA – a 12-week training program for cancer survivors. She was so touched by how it helped her physically and mentally that she wanted to give back in some way. Kelli, along with her husband, organized the LIVESTRONG Golf Scramble.
The golf scramble will take place on Friday, Oct. 15 at the Saratoga Lake Golf Club (35 Gracemoore Rd., Saratoga Springs) with registration at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start at 12 p.m. Cost per golfer is $125 or $500 for a foursome and includes lunch at the turn and a buffet dinner at the Hideaway at the course; dinner only is $60 per person.
The tournament is looking for tee sponsors, golfers, wine donations (for a wine pull at the dinner), and raffle prizes. There will be a 50/50 and raffle prizes, 1st and 2nd place prizes, hole-in-one-prize, closest to the pin prize, and longest drive prize.
The YMCA and LIVESTRONG joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA: “a physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their health goals.” The 12-week training program is with certified personal trainers and provides participants and their workout buddies with a four-month Y membership.
