Putt Away Cancer events are entertaining for the whole family. The objective Putt Away Cancer is to create events that are exciting and engaging. The events include activities that are designed to meet Putt Away Cancer’s principles, goals, and programming objectives set forth in our Bylaws. Our signature event being our Putt Away Cancer Miniature Golf Tournament held at Embassy Oaks Miniature Golf Course. We have developed a great repertoire with this facility, as the owner is a Cancer Survivor as well. Therefore we’ve decided to make their course our San Antonio premier choice.
The first Putt Away Cancer Miniature Golf tournament took place 17 September 2016 at Embassy Oaks Miniature Golf Course. Tha1Radio, owned by Neka Cleaver, were our awesome hosts at the event. Our event sponsors were Judge Jason Pulliam of Bexar County 4th County Court of Appeals (signature sponsor); Derrick Miller, and Keys Bookkeeping. Rudy’s BBQ was our goody bag sponsor. With 31 participants, we raised $1445 (before expenses; $395 after). This great event was a wonderful introduction to the community.
In 2017 we expanded our reach and hosted preceding events prior our 2nd Annual Putt Away Cancer Miniature Golf Tournament, which was held on September 16th. The owners of Embassy Oaks Miniature Golf proudly sponsored one of our Circle of Hope awards. Derrick Miller, who is also a Cancer Survivor himself, returned as our 2017 signature sponsor. Joining him were 7 Hole-in-One sponsors and Tha1Radio graciously returned as our hosts and kept everyone entertained throughout the morning. With 55 paid participants, we raised $1815 before expenses ($885 after).
2018 will be our best year yet. We are adding our 1st Golf event so we can embed our organization into the Golf community as well. Coming 14 April 2018, we will host a Closest to the Pin Challenge at San Pedro Golf Course. This event, will mark the beginning of a brand new chapter for us because our goal is to not limit our audience. While we are a family friendly organization, we are also competitive. So hosting an event that is a little more serious is equally as important as one that does not have age restrictions.

See you on the greens!
