Cindy Hite golf tourney to benefit MCCA returns Friday / October 18, 2017
October is breast cancer awareness month. It is also time for the Cindy Hite Memorial Tournament — a major fund raiser for the Mecklenburg County Cancer Association.

The event takes place Friday.

Now in its fifth year, the golf tournament honors Cindy Hite, a popular member of the Clarksville community who died from breast cancer in 2011. All of the funds raised from the event are used to help cancer patients in Mecklenburg County

The event includes a golf tournament at Kinderton Country Club in Clarksville, a daylong silent auction also held at Kinderton Country Club, and an evening after party at The Lamplighter Restaurant in Clarksville that includes a live auction and entertainment by JB and the Get Down Browns.

Even if you are not a golfer, Heather Hite Keeton, one of the event organizers, says please stop by and show your support for the people in this county who are suffering from this deadly disease.

The golf tournament starts at 8 a.m. for the morning flight and 1 p.m. for the afternoon flight. There are only three spots left for golfers and they’re all during the morning. The cost to golf is $280 per foursome.

There’s an added incentive for golfers this year. Larry West of Larry’s Paint & Body is donating an eight-day trip to Hawaii to anyone who hits a hole in one on a designated tee, and Hardee Ford of South Hill is donating a Ford Focus.

The silent auction will run throughout the day until 6:30 p.m., and anyone, golfer or otherwise, is welcome to stop by KCC to bid on the prizes being auctioned. Among the items up for bid are outdoor umbrellas, a Coach purse, Lilly Pulitzer coolers, a custom watch from Memory Makers, gift cards to McCollum Ferrell and Virginia Avenue Mall, Carhartt gift packages, a Keurig coffee maker with SIC cups, and gift baskets.

There is no charge for those stopping by to place bids at the silent auction.

At 8:30 p.m., the party moves to The Lamplighter. The cover charge is $5, and the live auction begins at 10 p.m.

If you can’t attend, but would like to donate, you can send checks payable to MCCA to Heather Keeton at PO Box 130, Clarksville VA 23927, or drop a check off in person at Hite’s Clothing Store in Clarksville.

Last year the Cindy Hite Memorial Tournament raised more than $52,000 for the Mecklenburg County Cancer Association. They hope to exceed that goal this year.
