Golf tournament to raise funds for cancer

In memory of Larry Burch

One hundred years ago the American Cancer Society started the fight of a lifetime. Today, cancer touches over one million people in the United States each year.

Larry Burch was no exception. He fought a two-year battle with tongue cancer and the fight ended on September 17, 2012. He was born and raised in Middlesex and lived his adult life in West Point. Larry’s family will honor him and his fight with a golf tournament to raise money to help with the ongoing battle to find a cure. 

On Saturday, August 3, The Larry Burch Memorial Golf Tournament and Family Fun Day will be held at the West Point Country Club with all proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society in Larry’s memory. Events for the day will include a morning and afternoon golf tournament, swimming for the family, bounce house, face painting, cornhole tournament and lots more fun for all. Live music will be provided during the event. 

“Come out for a day of fun with your family and support this worthy cause,” said an event spokesperson.
