It’s the time of year when, for the previous 20 years, the Geri Reeve Open (GRO) Golf Tournament Committee starts planning the Centre County’s premier woman’s golf tournament for the upcoming year. However, this year, instead of contacting our players, sponsors, and volunteers to save the date for the 2014 edition of the tournament, we are announcing that there will be no GRO for 2014. While there will be no GRO in the coming years, we will be planning smaller-scale fundraisers to support the mission of the Centre County Breast Cancer Coalition (CCBCC).
The tournament began in 1994 as a small local event of 42 golfers, raised $393 for the American Cancer Society. Over the 20 years of the tournament we raised, with the generous support of our players, sponsors, and volunteers, over $315,000 for the Centre County Breast Cancer Coalition and the American Cancer Society.
Words cannot express how much we have appreciated your support throughout the years and we look forward to your continued support in the future by donating directly to the Centre County Breast Cancer Coalition online or by attending one of the future fundraisers.
With Sincere Appreciation,
President, Centre County Breast Cancer Coalition
