HUBBARD, Ohio - Ankle & Foot Care Centers today announced plans for its 18th annual Diabetes Golf Benefit, a four-person scramble set for Friday, August 19, at the Pine Lakes Golf Club at 6233 W. Liberty St. 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're looking forward to raising more funds for the ongoing battle against diabetes," said Dr. Michelle Anania, partner at Ankle & Foot Care Centers and the event's lead organizer.
