Swing for Hope

Sharma Goodwin

The Ironwood Ladies Golf Association (ILGA) invites you to help us drive out cancer and Swing for Hope. Activities begin in March and end on Thursday, March 21. All proceeds go to the University of Arizona Cancer Center (UAF/UACC) for research on a cure for all cancer. With the help of our community, ILGA has raised over $179,000 since 1997. March activities start with the opportunity to make donations in the names of family and friends who have been impacted by this disease.

Starting on Thursday, Feb. 29, volunteers will be available before each shotgun start to collect your donation forms or assist you in completing the form.

• Donation forms are available in the club room, on the ILGA website, and at the donation collection table.

• Checks should be made payable to UAF/UACC, which is the umbrella organization for raising funds for the University of Arizona Cancer Research Center. Donations can also be made in cash. Donors are encouraged to list a name of a person or persons to be memorialized or honored. This year we will commemorate each person with a pinwheel, which will be placed in our ILGA Tribute Garden outside the patio at Grill on the Green.

Thursday, March 21: The Charity Raffle will come to ILGA. We have golf packages and other prizes. Tickets are 5 for $5 or 15 for $10. Bring your cash and choose your potential prizes. The drawing will be March 21 at Ironwood.
