2022 In the Name of the Mother Golf Tournament @ Blue Mash Golf Course
Sep 9 @ 9:00 am – 7:00 pm

The “In the Name of the Mother” charity golf outing is an event organized by donors that provides crucial funding to help mothers battling cancer in crisis. Join them for an incredible day on the course as they continue this tradition and support important work in our community.

The fund was established in 2005 by Kevin McConville and his family and friends to honor Megan McConville, Kevin’s wife, who passed away from cancer in November 2004. The mission of “In the Name of the Mother” is to provide financial aid to mothers diagnosed with cancer, based on the principle that no mother undergoing cancer treatment should have to worry about how to keep food on her family’s table or how to keep her children safe and cared for. The money provided by “In the Name of the Mother” has provided financial assistance for rent, utilities, house cleaning, medical needs, food, wigs and specialty clothes.

Please join us for the 17th Annual “In the Name of the Mother” charity golf outing on Friday, Sept. 9. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with the shotgun start at 10 a.m. A silent auction will be included. The event ends with a dinner.
