Local golf tournament to benefit Ray Smith and family

Ray Smith, a sophomore at Rockford High School, is currently battling leukemia. A benefit golf tournament will be held at Boulder Creek Golf Club on June 22.

Attention golfers: The green jackets are coming to Rockford on June 22! The Eagles Golf Tournament will be held at 3:00 p.m., Friday, June 22 at Boulder Creek Golf Club. The event is a two-person scramble (no shotgun start) for $55 each with food and drink provided. Two green jackets will be awarded to the winners.

“We’re trying to keep it simple,” said tournament director Brian Mogg, “because the real focus is raising funds and awareness for Ray Smith and his family.”

Ray is a local Rockford High School sophomore who has been battling leukemia for a year and a half. Although Ray made it through life-threatening infections, chemo and remission, the leukemia has returned. He is currently undergoing more intensive chemotherapy in hopes that he will be able to proceed with a bone marrow transplant.

If you are interested in either playing or sponsoring the event, contact the tournament director via e-mail at brianmogg1@comcast.net or by calling (616) 863-9500.
