In the Name of the Mother Golf Outing

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.

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.

The event is held in early September each year. Watch for details in the “Upcoming Events” calendar on our website. For more information, please contact:
