Chris Weymiller of Harpers Ferry inspired the tournament participants with her talk about her own breast cancer journey from 2023, and the tournament raised $500 this year that is being donated to the Veterans Memorial Hospital Mammography Program. The tournament received donations from Veterans Memorial Hospital, Waukon Golf and Country Club, Pop’s Produce, Howard’s Home Furnishings, Aztec Parlor, Hello Sunshine, Steel Cow, Laurie Moody, and the committee of Barb Hanson, Nancy Einck and Linda DeBuhr.
