Looking to do something fun for a great cause? Here’s your chance!

On Monday, October 12, World Golf Village will kick off the 2015 Play Golf – Fight Cancer® 11th Annual Golf Classic to benefit the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute. This is the first year the tournament comes to WGV and we’re thrilled to welcome golfers and spectators to join in the fun for this important cause.

Over the past 10 years, the tournament has raised more than $1 million for research at UF Health Proton Therapy Institute. All net proceeds from this year’s event will also go to support the clinical research program at the Institute.

Located in Jacksonville, Florida, the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute has treated more than 5,500 patients since opening in 2006, placing it in the top five most experienced proton therapy centers worldwide.

The event starts with a dinner and live auction on Sunday, October 11 at the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum. To register or find more information about the dinner and tournament, visit them on Facebook or their website.
