Join up and “Putt Cancer in the Hole”

September 2nd, 2014 · 1 Comment

All are invited to “Putt Cancer in the Hole,” a charity putt putt golf event that was was created in 2011 in honor of Audrey Warnekros who passed away from a brain tumor in 1991. It has since become an annual event where teams of up to 6 play for a spot on the trophy, with a raffle of awesome prizes after the event.
Organizer Frankie is a lifelong Magnolian.  She writes:
I’m a Magnolia native – I grew up in the same house that my dad did on 27th  on the top of Dravus. My mom passed away when I was 5 years old from a  brain tumor, so 4 years ago I started hosting a putt putt tournament  called “Putt Cancer in the Hole,” to raise money for the American Brain  Tumor Association to support education, research, and awareness for brain  tumor diagnosis, treatment, and care. It’s important for me to help make a  difference for future families that have to deal with the diagnosis.
