The Uglys of Haines have several thank you’s to give out for the success of the latest fundraiser for our cancer connection. First of all, thank you Stan and Kathy Jones at the Valley of the Eagles golf course for hosting and donating the use of the course and greens fees of the latest golf tournament. Also, SEARHC and Pam Sloper of the Wise Woman organization for all of the planning and execution of the event.

Then thank you to all of those who came out and played. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the cooler weather. The winners amongst the 38 players comprising 10 teams were “Team Swinton” made up of Tyler, Kayley and Ralph Swinton and Lynzee Wortman. About $3,136 was added to our coffers to be distributed locally to cancer victims.

A couple of reminders: If you or a member of your family are diagnosed with cancer and a Haines resident, contact Cancer Committee chairman Chuck Mittman or any Ugly for an application. Another benefit golf tournament will be held Aug. 11 for Mary Folletti at the Valley of the Eagles golf course. Even if you are not a golfer, you can make your donations there. Here’s hoping we’re done giving out money.
