Millis golf tournament raises $13K to support families battling cancer
BATAVIA – The family of David Millis hosted their 11th annual David R. Millis Memorial Golf Tournament on June 4 at Batavia Country Club.
This year the tournament raised $13,000, bringing the 11-year grand total to over $138,000. The money was again donated to the Knights-Kaderli Memorial Fund, which is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to assisting families in Orleans County with their fight against cancer. The money is used to assist with prescriptions, medical insurance, nutritional supplements, hospital beds and many other needs.
The Millis family would like to thank the sponsors, golfers, dinner guests, volunteers, and raffle prize donors to help make this tournament another great success. This year the tournament had 131 golfers and 172 dinner guests.
Mike Hayden, Greg Weber, Ryan Dombrowski and Doug Dombrowski won this year’s tournament shooting a 12 under par. Golfers and dinner guests had a chance to find purple golf balls hidden throughout the golf course and banquet hall to help raise pancreatic cancer awareness, which Dave passed away from. Anyone who found a golf ball throughout the day won a prize.
Millis was an active community member and the long-time superintendent of Albion’s sewer plant.
