North Carolina Golf Tournament Raises Awareness of Carcinoid Cancer and Funds for the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation

Larry Sanders, Plant Engineer at Arclin USA in Moncure, North Carolina, and his colleagues held the Arclin’s Men and Women’s Golf Tournament on May 24, 2014 to express appreciation for those who work at the plant and for Arclin’s clients and to raise awareness of carcinoid cancer and funds in support of the work of the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation.

Because of the large participation and response to the event since its inception four years ago, Mr. Sanders decided to associate the Golf Tournament with a cause. He selected Carcinoid Cancer in honor of his wife Debbie, who was diagnosed with this rare disease in 2006. The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation was chosen as the recipient of donations from both the 2013 and 2014 Golf Tournaments in support of the foundation’s mission to increase awareness and educate the general public and healthcare professionals about carcinoid and related neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), to support carcinoid/NET cancer patients and their loved ones, and to serve as patient advocates.

Mrs. Sanders describes the May 24th tournament as a “fun-filled day of golf, hamburgers, hot dogs, door prizes, and a raffle” with 17 teams participating. This year’s event raised over $6,000 for the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation (CCF). “None of this would have been possible without our wonderful team of volunteers, especially Edie and Joe Ferriola,” says Mrs. Sanders. “We would also like to thank Arclin’s vendors, local companies, and individuals for their amazing generosity — donating prizes, sponsoring golf holes, and supporting CCF.”
