Many local golfers were among the 24 teams who competed last Saturday, Aug. 26, in the fourth annual Dave Spiegel Memorial Golf Tournament at Albion Country Club.
All proceeds from this tournament are used to assist cancer patients from the Boone County area in the fight against the disesase. This year, about $15,000 was raised for this purpose.
The tournament is held in memory of Boone County Sheriff Dave Spiegel, who lost his battle against cancer in January of 2014.
At the tournament, it was announced that another family in the region had just recently learned that a family member has cancer, and that family will be assisted with proceeds from the tournament.
