One-of-a-Kind Golf Tournament to Benefit the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is inviting Omaha area golfers to dust off their clubs and find some 80s garb for the Passport to the Cure Golf Tournament on August 23rd at the Field Club of Omaha (3615 Woolworth Ave.).  A one-of-a-kind tournament that boasts this year’s theme of “Caddyshacking it Up” is sure to be the event of the year.  This year’s event includes a four-person scramble followed by a cocktail reception.

“We are extremely excited about this year’s format,” commented event co-chair Andrea Wells.  “There’s no better way to support the fight against cancer than to spend a day on the golf course followed by a fun-filled cocktail reception.  We have some great things planned that will make it an unforgettable experience for all attendees.”

One of the many features at this year’s golf tournament is a hole in one contest with a chance to win a two-year lease of a Mercedes E 350 Sedan from Mercedes of Omaha. During the cocktail reception we will host a lively silent and live auction while, DJ Chris Suit Jones entertains the crowd.

Put on your plaid pants and lace up your golfing shoes as the day begins with a shotgun start at noon followed by the cocktail reception at 5 p.m.  Tickets are $500 for a foursome or $125 per golfer and include green fees, cart, food, beverage and tickets to the cocktail party.  Individual tickets for the cocktail party that include food and beverages may be purchased for $35. Sponsorship opportunities are still available at various levels. All tickets and sponsorships may be purchased by going to
