The 18th annual Karen Kjar Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for July 14. The event is sponsored by the Karen Kjar Memorial Golf Course, Buffalo, and Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center at Citizen’s Memorial Hospital in Bolivar.

Golfers are encouraged to mark their calendars and contact the course to reserve a spot and contribute to cancer patients at the center. Every penny from the tournament directly supports local families, friends and neighbors for cancer patient needs.

Money is used for gas cards, supplements, small co-pays, children’s clothing, dental care, tires, propane and much more. Insurance doesn’t cover everything, and the financial toll on families is stretched. This fundraiser offered by Curt and Melissa (Kjar) Darnell helps to address those needs of cancer center patients. 

Golfers should to stop by the pro shop at 90 Golf Course Road south of Buffalo to donate or sign up for the event. 

For information, call golf course staff at (417) 345-4653.
