Golf Tournament Fights Cancer

Posted: Updated:

There were drives, putts, and laughs at Minot's Souris Valley Golf Course today.

Women were playing golf for a good cause -raising money for the Trinity Cancer Care Center.

The 17th annual Building Hope Golf Tournament teed off this morning, with some beautiful weather that's been rare in past years.

Along with the nice day, the golf course itself was back in shape with all 18 holes open for the tourney for the first time since the 2011 flood.

But golf isn't the focus of this day - instead, the goal is to help the local cancer center continue to improve care for the 600 patients diagnosed and treated there each year.

(Jodi Smith, Trinity Foundation Director) "We've raised over $400,000 just through this tournament and again those funds go directly to the Cancer Care Center. We don't use any of those funds for administrative costs, we take 100% of the cash that's given and the sponsorships and we give it right back to them."

There will be a men's Building Hope Tournament in early August.
