12th Annual Crye-Leike Golf Tournament to Benefit Wings Cancer Foundation

MEMPHIS, TN.- There is still time to register for the 12th Annual Sherry Park Memorial Golf Tournament, to be held on Thursday, September 21, 2006, at the Memphis National Golf Club in Collierville, TN.  This annual event benefits the Wings Cancer Foundation at West Clinic in Memphis, TN, and is organized by Crye-Leike, Realtors Germantown – Poplar branch office.


The tournament is named in memory of former Crye-Leike Managing Broker Sherry Park, who led the Germantown – Poplar sales team for nine years since its establishment in 1986.  When Sherry was diagnosed with cancer, she was instrumental in organizing the first tournament, in 1994, to benefit cancer research.  Upon her death in 1995, Crye-Leike’s Germantown – Poplar branch chose to continue the tournament in her memory with proceeds benefiting the Wings Cancer Foundation.  To date, this dedicated branch office has raised over $127,000 for cancer research.


Open to golfers of all skill levels, the cost is $100 per person or $400 per team. Registration for the four-person scramble begins at 11:00 a.m., with a shotgun tee time of 12:30 p.m. and an awards presentation immediately following the tournament. Lunch will be provided beginning at 11:30 a.m., with evening hors d’oeuvres being served after the tournament. Each participant will receive a gift bag and t-shirt, and players will be able to purchase mulligans for the day’s tournament.


Sponsorships are still available and volunteers and donations are greatly appreciated.  To register or become a sponsor, contact Chairperson Sherry Hulen of Crye-Leike, Realtors at (901) 550-6270 or (901) 754-0800.
