Golf tournament to aid young girl
MILTON - Mallory Ade, 4, is a fighter. Last year, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and, since then, has endured surgeries and chemotherapy. Through it all, she has shown strength beyond her years and now the community is coming to her aid with the Go Mallory Golf Classic, which begins at 8 a.m. today at the Wynding Brook Golf Club.
Proceeds from the tournament will help Ade with costs incurred by her treatment such as travel expenses.
Golf tournament co-organizer Joe Girardi said, "The community wanted to reach out to help this little girl and her family as they go through this very difficult time and we are grateful for the overwhelming support that we have gotten." Sponsors and donors for the event include more than 50 local businesses and individuals.
The Go Mallory Golf Classic will award prizes such as a car donated by Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships and a set of Cleveland Irons donated by Franco's Lounge and Cloud 9 Restaurant.
