Grocers on the Green raises Money for pediatric cancer
Since 2002, Coborn’s and Kemps have joined together to host the annual Grocers on the Green golf tournament to benefit pediatric cancer. Once again the event was a huge success at Pebble Creek Golf Club in Becker, MN. Since the tournament’s inception in 2002, Grocers on the Green has raised nearly $2 million to support pediatric cancer.
Coborn’s co-chaired Grocers on the Green with Kemps, and more than 40 sponsors supported pediatric cancer through this event. The funds raised will support the pediatric cancer program at CentraCare Health Plaza and the Coborn Cancer Center, allowing children and their families to stay close to home when receiving treatment. They will also partially fund two professional child-life specialists, who work with pediatric patients and their families. These specialists work to lessen children’s anxiety levels when receiving treatments and help them cope in positive ways through play, reading and relationships.
Thank you to all our participants for making 2019 a huge success! We look forward to seeing you at our 2020 tournament!
