Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George take time to putt around at the 16th annual OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation Charitable Golf Tournament at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course
ALTON – A beautiful day and the generosity of the community made for a successful outing at the 16th annual Saint Anthony’s Foundation Annual Charitable Golf Tournament in June. The tournament at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course raised $89,565 for the hospital’s cancer services.
The tournament is hosted by OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation and included personal appearances by St. Louis Cardinals Fred Bird; meteorologist Mike Roberts and some St. Louis Blues Alumni – Terry Yake, Mike Zuke and Larry Patey – as well as Blues Account Executive Kyle Worman.
The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis and the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George were also on hand for a smile, a prayer, and took to the links themselves.
“The community support was definitely felt at this year’s event,” said Lee McRaven, annual fund coordinator for OSF Saint Anthony’s Foundation. “It’s so wonderful to have over 50 businesses and community members supporting the event, and helping to give hope to our family, friends and neighbors fighting cancer.”
During the past 16 years, the golf tournament has raised more than $989,500 for the OSF Saint Anthony’s Cancer Center of Excellence.
This year’s tournament was co-chaired by two community members: Monica Bristow, President of the RiverBend Growth Association, and Mark Kratschmer, Vice President of Wegman Electric.
