The South Lake Tahoe Cancer League hosted the 10th annual Longest Day of Golf Tournament at Tahoe Paradise Golf Course in Meyers, South Lake Tahoe in hopes to raise money toward their mission to help local cancer patients. The long day of golf began at 6am and ended at 9pm with 9 golfers averaging a total of 130 holes each.
Among the golfers was Greg Kuntz, a Tahoe Valley Elementary teacher, who's students help to raise $1,092.
Sponsored by the South Lake Moose Lodge #1632 and partnered with Sierra-at-Tahoe, Hard Rock, Harrah's and Harvey's, all proceeds go back into the local community through financial grants for those facing cancer. Funds earned also go to buy gas for the volunteer drivers who take patients to Reno and Carson City for treatment. Tahoe Paradise Golf donated all of the carts and golf.
League President Maryann Currington and Treasurer Angie Burns informed us that the golfers got a breakfast at dawn, followed by lunch from Lira's Market and they'll got a pizza dinner at the Moose Lodge from Blue Dog Pizza.
Participant golfer Cathy Vogelgesang praised the event by saying, "Thanks to the Moose Lodge's chef for a great breakfast, Lira's for a wonderful sandwich, and Blue Dog for their delicious pizza. I had a great time and played 100 holes for my 1st time participating in this event. Please make a donation to the Cancer League to help those in our community."
