Golfers from across the region are invited to tee up this week at a special golf event to benefit breast cancer research in Southeast Indiana. Sponsored by the Dearborn County Convention, Visitor & Tourism Bureau and Grand Oak Golf Club, the third-annual Tour for the Cure® Golf Day will raise money for the bureau’s Tour for the Cure® initiative, a travel incentive program that supports the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer (SM).
Scheduled for this Friday, June 15, the event will run from 8am until dark, with participants allowed to golf at the time of their choosing. The event is open to the public, with advanced tee time reservations (812-637-3943) recommended but not required.
Throughout the day, Grand Oak will donate $5 to Tour for the Cure® for every 18-hole round played, and $2.50 to Tour for the Cure® for every 9-hole round played. It’s a great way to have fun and give hope to women in need! We’ll also be giving away a special limited-edition Bubba Watson “Ladies Flex 12 Degree” pink PING Golf driver at this year’s Tour for the Cure® Golf Day.

Perfect North Slopes is at it again…After the popularity of last year’s Mud-Stash event, which was held earlier in the fall, the Lawrenceburg-based ski area has scheduled another for this Saturday, May 19.
Popular with runners and adventure-seeking athletes of all ages, the special 5K “mud run” and obstacle course incorporates a variety of challenges ranging from simple hill climbs to mud-crawls, cargo nets, bridges and more. Participants should arrive ready to get dirty as they challenge themselves to the limit during this no-holds-barred course containing nearly 40 obstacles.
The registration fee for this special event is $70 per person, which includes an official Mud-Stash medal upon completing the course. In addition, all competitors will receive a $20 gift card which can be applied toward a variety of perks such as Mud-Stash t-shirts, beverages, food, or even admission to the next Mud-Stash. An after-party, beer garden and live entertainment have also been planned.
Want to invite your friends and family to cheer you on? Spectators will not be charged a gate fee for admission and will be able to purchase concessions throughout the day, so participants are encouraged to bring along fans to support them.
