Ankle & Foot Diabetes Golf Benefit Set for Aug. 17

HUBBARD, Ohio – Ankle & Foot Care Centers will hold its 20th annual Diabetes Golf Benefit, a four-person scramble, Aug. 17 at the Pine Lakes Golf Club here.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region’s largest podiatric care provider, with 17 physicians and surgeons serving patients at 20 local offices. The tournament raises money for the Diabetes Partnership of Mahoning Valley, which provides education, resources, and support for people and families living with diabetes.

“This annual event always generates a great turnout and we’re hoping to raise $16,000 this year,” said Dr. Michelle Anania, partner at Ankle & Foot Care Centers and the event’s lead organizer. “It’s a great opportunity to come together to help raise awareness and support the fight against diabetes.”

The event has been sponsored by Ankle & Foot Care Centers since 1999 and has raised more than $165,000 for services and education for diabetes patients.

A shotgun start is scheduled for 10:30 a.m., following a 9:30 a.m. registration. The $100 fee per golfer includes 18 holes of golf, lunch and dinner, beverages on the course and skill contests. Lunch will be served on the course with dinner at the pavilion immediately following the event.

Registration deadline is Aug. 8. Hole and corporate sponsorships are available. Call Michael Vallas at 330 629 8800 for details.
