The Brent Stitely Memorial Golf Tournament was held on April 28, 2018, at Maple Run Golf Course in Thurmont to benefit The American Cancer Society of Frederick County. One hundred golfers participated, raising over $6,000 to help fund education and patient-support programs, such as The Hope Lodge, Roads to Recovery, and a free “Cancer Hotline,” staffed by medical professionals for cancer patients and caregivers.
The tournament concluded with an awards ceremony and lunch, catered by Mountaingate Restaurant, at The American Legion Post 168 in Thurmont. Relay For Life team “FunRaisers” hosted the tournament as part of their annual fundraising effort, and participated in the Frederick County Relay held at Banner School in Frederick for the twenty-first year to honor the memory of their son, brother, and friend, Brent Stitely, who lost his battle with Ewings Sarcoma in 1997 at the age of thirteen. This year’s Relay Event, held at Banner School on Friday and Saturday May 11-12, raised nearly $250,000, with team “FunRaisers” providing over $19,000 of that total. Tournament organizers wish to thank all of our sponsors and players for their generous support.
