HUBBARD, Ohio (May 13, 2014) – Ankle & Foot Care Centers today announced plans for its 16th annual Golf Benefit, a four-person scramble set for Friday, Aug. 22, at the Pine Lakes Golf Club in Hubbard.
The tournament raises money for local diabetes education, resources and support, through Ankle & Foot Care Centers and the Diabetes Partnership of the Mahoning Valley.
“We think it is important to support organizations like the DPMV,” said Dr. Michelle Anania, partner at Ankle & Foot Care Centers. “We’re thrilled that the money we raise through this annual event will go toward helping local families struggling with diabetes.”
A shotgun start is scheduled for noon, following sign-in at 11 a.m. The $100 fee per golfer includes 18 holes of golf, lunch and dinner, beverages on the course, merchandise prizes and skill contests. Lunch will be served on the course with dinner at the pavilion immediately following the event.
Registration deadline is Friday, Aug. 8. Golfers can register by calling Michael Vallas at Ankle & Foot Care Centers, 330-629-8800. There are also opportunities to support this event through hole and corporate sponsorships. Those interested should call for more details.
More information and a registration form are available here.
Ankle & Foot Care Centers actively works with the American Diabetes Association, as well as the local Diabetes Partnership of the Mahoning Valley. The practice also organizes support groups for diabetes patients and their families and helps to raise awareness of diabetes, especially as it affects the feet.
“Through the generosity of Ankle & Foot Care Centers, we’re able to continue and increase support to organizations such as the Midlothian Free Health Clinic, who see an increasing number of diabetic patients,” said Edward Hassay, president of the Diabetes Partnership of the Mahoning Valley.
The golf benefit, organized by Dr. Michelle Anania, has been sponsored by Ankle & Foot Care Centers since 1999. The events have raised more than $125,000 for diabetes education and research.
