The In the Name of the Mother Charity Golf Outing is an event organized by donors that provides a crucial source of the funding used 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. Money provided by In the Name of the Mother have provided financial assistance for rent, utilities, house cleaning, medical needs, food, wigs and specialty clothes.
Please join us for 15th Annual In the Name of the Mother Charity Golf Outing on Friday, Sept. 11.
Because of COVID-19, we will follow CDC health and safety guidelines as well as Blue Mash golf course policies. We will be unable to convene for a banquet-style meal. However, lunch and refreshments will be offered at the turn for all golfers. Maximum participation in the outing is 72 players.
