Sock Out Cancer Named PGA Tour's Charity Of The Year

On Thursday, February 25th, the PGA TOUR Champions announced that "Sock Out Cancer" has been named the PGA Tour's 2022 Charity of the Year. "Sock Out Cancer" was created in 2017 and has distributed more than $1.3 million to participating hospital foundations and other charitable organizations.

In 2022, the first round of the DSGO was "Sock Out Cancer Awareness Day." Broome Community Charities presented "Birdies for Cancer" where people could pledge a donation for every birdie made for the cancer patients and I hope that they'll bring it back this year

For winning this award, Sock Out Cancer will get a $30,000 donation from the PGA TOUR Champions. The money will be sent to hospital foundations that identify eligible people in need of financial support for non-medical costs like transportation.

Kenny Chesney At DICK'S Sporting Goods Open

Congrats to everyone that made :Sock Out Cancer" and "Birdies for Cancer" possible. The 2023 DICK'S Sporting Goods Open is Monday, June 19th to Sunday, June 25th at the En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott.
