PUTNAM, CT – The Danielson Elks #1706 recently presented Day Kimball Healthcare’s Deary Memorial Cancer Fund with a donation of $3,000. These funds were raised in September at the 2nd Annual Breast Cancer Ladies Golf Tournament hosted by the Elks, held at the Brooklyn Country Club.

The tournament began as a thank you to Day Kimball from a breast cancer patient who received treatment in the hospital’s Rose Bove LaRose Oncology Center. In its first year, the tournament raised $1,900 and will continue to raise funds each year. Monies raised for the Day Kimball Healthcare Deary Memorial Cancer Fund remain local and help families around Northeast Connecticut.
