The Cher Bear Open

The 12th annual Cher Bear Open will be held on June 22, 2019, at the Vallaire Golf Club. Proceeds from the event will go to the family of Collin, suffering from Medulloblastoma, a cancerous (malignant) brain tumor that starts in the lower back part of the brain, called the cerebellum. Last year Pennies from Above and the Cher Bear Open raised more than $6,000 for Kendall and her family.  We rely on the generosity of local businesses and company vendors for prize donations, to ensure the success of this event. 100% of all monetary donations and proceeds from the event go directly to the family.  We sincerely thank you for donations and participation in the Cher Bear Open.  Please come out and support the Collin on June 22, 2019, at the Valleaire Golf Club.

Collin was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma on the first day of 4th grade. Medulloblastoma starts at the base of the skull and can spread to other parts of the brain and spinal column. Although Collin has endured several surgeries, radiation and chemo his tumors have tripled. Collin is a sweet 9-year old little man with a kind soul. He loves fishing, golf, lacrosse, Hot Wheels and especially Nerf Guns! Although he has endured so much God’s love shines through him to everyone he meets.
You do not need to play golf to contribute to this worthy cause.  There are four ways you or your organization can help Kendall and her family.
