Cullan Brown

On Friday, October 11, the Birdies for Brownie Golf Tournament will be held at Princeton Golf and Country Club to benefit Lyon County-turned-University of Kentucky golfer Cullan Brown.

In August, Brown was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, and he is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

The community has rallied behind Brown and his family since news of his diagnosis broke, and this golf tournament is the latest venture in a string of fundraising efforts folks hope will lessen the burden on the Browns as Cullan receives treatment.

According to Corky Peek, one of the tournament's organizers, Princeton Golf and Country Club has donated use of their course to the cause for free so more funds can go straight to the Browns.

Lunch will be served at 11 a.m., prior to the tournament, with the shotgun start at 12:30 p.m..

The entry fee is $320 per four-person team, which includes four mulligans (one for each team member).

Golf carts will be available for a $25 per cart rental fee. There is no cost to bring your own cart.

There will be payouts to the first, second, and third place teams, and donations will be accepted at the tournament, with 100-percent of the money going to Cullan Brown and his family.

Hole sponsorships are available for $100, and donations of items to be raffled at the tournament are also welcome and appreciated.

Space in the tournament is limited to 22 teams, so reserve your spot soon by contacting Brandy Knoth at (270) 625-4285 or brandyknoth@yahoo.com.
