July 25, 2012- The Fifth Annual “Take a Swing at Diabetes” is being held on Monday, September 17, 2012 at Andover Golf & Country Club with proceeds benefiting the American Diabetes Association and our mission - to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all those affected by diabetes. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. This is the perfect way to gather friends, business associates and co-workers to enjoy a day of golf at a beautiful club while helping to STOP DIABETES!
Teams are $500 per foursome ($125 for an individual) and include green fees, cart fees, lunch & a lavish banquet following the tournament. Participants also have the opportunity to win wonderful prizes. Most importantly, your commitment helps support over 400,000 Kentuckians that are living with diabetes. Louis H. Vettraino, Tournament Chairman adds, “This is our way to give back to the community where we live and we want others to join us and put an end to this dreaded disease. We know economic times are tough but diabetes never takes a break and neither are we. Working together is the most powerful way to help find a cure for this disease.”
