This is the tournament’s sixth year.

Elizabeth Harder the Alzheimer’s Association Director of Development said, “One thing that’s really important with the Alzheimer’s Association is to speak to different audiences. Speak to different generations. Speak to different people who’ve been touched by Alzheimer’s disease, so this is just one opportunity that we can reach a demographic to spread awareness and raise money for our mission.”

Over the past six years, this tournament has raised about $200,000 dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association.
