Taylor Lorimier Classic Golf Benefit Tournament

The Grant Hickman Team grabbed our clubs to participate in the Taylor Lorimier Classic Golf Benefit Tournament Saturday, September 6, 2008.

Friends of the Lorimier Family and Mid Rivers Golf Course hosted the benefit golf tournament in honor of Taylor Lorimier, a 10 year-old girl from Florissant diagnosed with Leukemia in 2004. Taylor finished her treatment in May of 2007. While the Lorimier family is doing well despite the medical and financial obligations for a cancer of this type, they continue hosting the golf tournament to help other children in need by donating the annual tournament proceeds to organizations who help families in similar predicaments.

The golf tournament was an excellent opportunity to raise the awareness of Leukemia and its effects on our youth and, at the same time, help families in need. This year’s tournament raised more than $4,500.
