Stalker Lake Golf Course Donates $32,527 to Lake Region Cancer Center

Several of the staff members at Lake Region Healthcare’s Cancer Care & Research Center gathered outside the Cancer Center's healing garden recently to accept a very impressive and generous donation from Sheri Swonger, Stalker Lake Golf Course and Pete Peterson and George Reed, Underwood Lions member.

The $32,527 donation well-surpassed their $30,000 goal for a weeklong fundraiser to benefit the cancer center. Funds were raised throughout one week in July 2019 when the golf course, assisted by the Lions, hosted a ladies, mens and couples tournament, raffles, silent auction, live music, and contributed a portion of their food and beverage sales.

Sheri said reaching the goal was achieved thanks to the excellent support of the Lion’s club, community partners & sponsors, and everyone who participated in the week’s events. The proceeds will be used to help the cancer center better serve and support cancer patients in our area with world class cancer care close to home.
