The American Cancer Society and The V Foundation for Cancer Research are teaming up again to bring local and national sports figures together to play golf with foursomes sponsored by local businesses in a scramble format at The Cardinal Club on Monday, June 10th. A Pairings Party, hosted by Wild Eggs, will be held on Sunday, June 9th at their Westport Village location and will include live and silent auctions. This is the 20th year that Fred Cowgill has hosted a golf event in Louisville. The first 17 years he raised funds to benefit diabetes research, education and programs in honor of his father and sister. Fred’s father, Ralph Cowgill, also had pancreatic cancer and passed away in December 2009. After the 2010 event, Fred asked on old friend, Bob Valvano, to partner with him to raise funds to support cancer research, education and programs.
