Registration will begin at noon, followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

The event is named in honor of Jackie Ayers, a nurse, alumna and retired faculty member of the former Medical College of Ohio. She lost her battle to breast cancer in 2012.

University retirees Kathy McVicker and Sherry Andrews started the outing to honor their longtime colleague, who was a member of the UT women’s golf league.

Cost for the benefit is $80 per person and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, boxed lunch, drink tickets, gift bag and awards dinner in the Valleywood Clubhouse.

Proceeds will support the UT Medical Center Metastatic Breast Cancer Support Group and the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center’s Integrative Therapies Program.

Register here until the day of the event.
