FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer (DDF) is excited to announce its Second Annual South Florida Dream Fore a Cure Golf Tournament taking place on Nov. 9, 2017 at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club. Registration opens at noon and the tournament starts at 1 p.m.  

The golf tournament is part of DDF's campaign to raise funds for stomach cancer research, and to support patients and their families. Per cancer death, gastric cancer receives the least amount of federal funding of any cancer. 

The tournament is led by Chair Jonathan Perrillo and committee members: AJ Bose, Michael Brin, Michael Ehren, Esq, David Fried, Evan Greenfield, John Griffin, Michael Loudis, Tyler Moore, John Nash, Jacob Sammons and Jamie Zambrana. The committee is hard at work to make this year's tournament another huge success. The event will feature a great day of golf, beginning with a shotgun start after lunch and registration. We will be playing a scramble format, best ball plays. Participants will be able to enter various competitions held in conjunction with the tournament for prizes. A silent auction for sports memorabilia and entertainment experiences will also be held. Following the tournament, there will be an awards ceremony and dinner.

"It's exciting to be the Chair of our Second Annual Golf Tournament. The tournament is a fun and important annual event to support the mission of Debbie's Dream Foundation," said Jonathan Perrillo. "As a DDF Board member, I am excited about the growth of the organization and the addition of a golf tournament. Thanks to the generosity of the many people who make it successful, we will be able to make a significant difference in funding for stomach cancer research."

The cost for an individual player is $200 and $700 for a foursome. Tournament registration includes green fees, range balls, cart rental, lunch and dinner. Tournament contests include first, second and third place team score, Closest to the Pin, and the Longest Drive. Ads and tributes in the event program book can also be purchased.
