Karmanos Cancer Institute benefits from “Three Shots Against Cancer” fundraising event
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
The 10th Annual “Three Shots Against Cancer” event was recently held at Wyandotte Shores Golf Course. Frank Maslanka of Wyandotte put together this great event in memory of his brother-in-law, the late Herb Cook, who was treated for prostate cancer at Karmanos Cancer Institute.
Family members, friends and supporters from the community came together to enjoy a day at the golf course, while raising essential funds and cancer awareness. At the event, golfers of all ages were able to contribute $5 to hit three balls on the course’s chipping green to try their hand at a hole in one. The event also featured a gift raffle drawing every 15 minutes, which included items donated by local restaurants and businesses. This year, more than $3,200 was raised for Karmanos!
We are thankful to Frank and everyone who supports the event year after year. We look forward to next year’s event!
