9th Annual Crye-Leike Golf Tournament to Benefit Wings Cancer Foundation
Memphis, Tenn. – Golfers, it’s not too late to sign up for the 9th Annual Sherry Park Memorial Golf Tournament on Thurs., September 11, 2003, at the Memphis National Golf Club in Collierville, Tenn. The event, sponsored by Crye-Leike, Realtors and the Hank Park Trust, will benefit the Wings Cancer Foundation at West Clinic in Memphis, Tenn.
The tournament is named in memory of Sherry Park, managing broker of Crye-Leike’s Germantown branch office, who led the office’s sales team for nine years since its establishment in 1986. When Sherry was diagnosed with cancer, she was instrumental in organizing Crye-Leike’s first golf tournament in 1994 to benefit cancer research. Upon her death in 1995, Crye-Leike’s Germantown branch office continued the golf tournament by naming it in her memory with proceeds benefiting the Wings Cancer Foundation. To date, the Sherry Park Memorial Golf Tournament has raised over $ 80,000 for the cause.
The cost is $100 per person or $400 per team, which includes green fees, golf cart, goodie bag, driving range, lunch and refreshments. The field will be limited to the first 144 players per shotgun time of 12:30 p.m. Trophies and hole prizes will be awarded to the winners of the one-day event. To register or to become a sponsor, contact Co-Chairmen Dan Quinley or Lucy Doane of Crye-Leike, Realtors in Germantown at 901/754-0800.

The foundation offers support services such as a lending library, a labyrinth, nutritional counseling, exercise and strength building, yoga and relaxation classes as well as crisis and bereavement support group programs. “Due to generous donations, the Wings Cancer Foundation is able to provide this community-based support free to anyone in the community touched by cancer,” said Sandy Patterson, executive director of the Wings Cancer Foundation.
