(KYTX) - Registration for the 13th annual Henry M. Bell, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament is now under way, with proceeds to benefit East Texas Medical Center's cancer outreach and community education.

Hosted by the ETMC Cancer Institute and the ETMC Foundation, the charity tournament is set for Monday, Sept. 23, at Willow Brook Country Club in Tyler.

"ETMC's Bell Tournament is important to our cancer programs and patients, as it ultimately helps promote early awareness of cancer issues and provides funding that directly supports our patient-focused cancer care," says Dianne Adelfio, vice president over the ETMC Cancer Institute.

"We appreciate the many people and organizations who work each year to continue this great tournament for a great cause."

Sponsors include corporate champion Suddenlink, medical champion Cyberknife, Inc. and golf ball drop sponsor Metro Aviation, as well as a host of area organizations.The event will feature a full afternoon of recreation and socialization, including a shotgun start, scramble tournament and awards reception.

In addition to Bell Tournament prizes for the winning teams, players also have the chance to win a 2013 Silverado Crew Cab with a hole-in-one shot on hole number 15, courtesy of Peltier Chevrolet.

 

The exciting golf ball drop is set for 12:30 p.m., just before the tournament start at 1 p.m. The grand prize winner – for the golf ball that lands in the designated hole or closest to the hole – will receive $1,000.

The second place prize winner will receive a $500 gift card courtesy of Brookshire's Grocery Co., with additional prizes awarded to the third through fifth place winners. A maximum of 1,000 golf ball chances will be sold for $5 each or six for $25.

For more information on the Golf Ball Drop, tournament registration and sponsorship opportunities, please contact the ETMC Foundation at (903) 596-3645.

The 2012 Bell Tournament raised approximately $25,000 for local cancer outreach and community education. The tournament also honors the late Henry M. Bell, Jr., former chairman of the board of the ETMC Foundation and long-term supporter of ETMC.
