Tournament has now topped $150K in 12 years

BATAVIA – The 12th Millis Memorial Golf Tournament raised $12,000 to assist families fighting cancer, bringing the total over 12 years to $150,000.

The family of David Millis would like to thank the sponsors, golfers, dinner guests, volunteers, and raffle prize donors to help make this year’s tournament a huge success even with the rainy weather on June 3 at Batavia Country Club.

The $12,000 from the tournament 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 team of Mike Hayden, Ryan Dombrowski, Greg Weber and Doug Dombrowski won the 12th Millis Memorial Golf Tournament.

Mike Hayden, Ryan Dombrowski, Greg Weber, and Doug Dombrowski defended their title and won this year’s tournament. 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.
