On Monday, October 28, the fifth annual “Fore the Cure” golf tournament benefiting It’s The Journey will be held at at Indian Hills Country Club. It’s The Journey is a local 501(c)3 charitable organization that raises money exclusively for breast health and breast cancer programs in Georgia. This event is chaired by longtime East Cobb residents, George and Kathy Bartelme. “We love that It’s The Journey is a small organization making a big impact in our community. Since 2002, the nonprofit has funded 335 grants totaling $14 million to support everything from breast exams, screening, diagnostics, genetic counseling and testing, biopsies, support services and to research, all right here in Georgia. As a breast cancer survivor, it meant a lot to me find an organization that was helping the women and men in my community in meaningful, tangible ways,” said Kathy.

The annual “Fore the Cure” golf tournament has raised over $200,000 since 2015. Registration begins at 9:30am, with a shotgun start at 11am. Participants will receive the use of a golf cart, lunch, 18 holes of golf, player’s package and prizes for golf challenges. Individual, foursome, and corporate sponsorships are available as well as donations for the silent auction and in-kind gifts. There will also be a silent auction the day of the tournament. Items for auction include golf packages, sports memorabilia, original artwork, themed gift baskets and more.
