14th Scramble Against Cancer set for July 9

The Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation is proud to announce its 14th annual Scramble Against Cancer, scheduled for July 9 at the Sonnenalp Golf Club in Singletree.

The Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable foundation with a mission to enhance the quality of life for the residents of the greater Eagle Valley community with a particular focus on educational and medical needs of children and families. Because the Foundation administers much of the charitable giving through the Sonnenalp Family of Resorts and Hotels, it has been able to provide a large number of in-kind services as auction items to fundraising events for causes that reflect its mission statement. The Foundation holds fundraisers that designate 100 percent of the net proceeds to a particular beneficiary.

The Sonnenalp Breast Center, located at the Edwards Shaw Cancer Center, is the honored recipient of the net proceeds from this annual event. The past 13 golf days have netted more than $1.3 million, which built and maintains this fine local facility.

This state-of-the-art facility has served patients of the central Rocky Mountain region since 2002. This convenient clinic has everything from drop-in check-ups to chemotherapy treatments. Having these services right here in our neighborhood saves people from having to drive long distances and stay overnight in Denver or Grand Junction. The clinic is small enough to stay intimate, private and comfortable, as the same few doctors and nurses are there daily to greet you like an old friend. Give them a call at 970-477-5345 for a tour of the facility.
