On October 16th 2017, members of Certol participated in the annual Golf for the Cure® at picturesque Kissing Camels Golf Course in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The team was represented by Certol President Ed Cassinis, VP of Operations Liz Towner, and close friends Marno Milne and Steve Cassinis. This is the 2nd straight year Certol has participated in an event both Ed and Liz have described as “a fun and very thoughtful contribution to the community.”
Susan G. Komen Colorado South® hosts the annual event to support the mission of saving lives in the community and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. 75% of the funds raised stays in the community in the form of grants to non-profits that provide screening, treatment and support for the underinsured and uninsured. 25% is added to the national Komen Research Grants Fund, helping both women and men. For this year’s event, a total of $13,000 was raised; a generous increase from the $8,000 raised in 2016.
