Valley REC to hold eighth annual golf tournament June 27
Valley Rural Electric Cooperative will host its eighth annual benefit golf tournament Thursday, June 27 at the Huntingdon Country Club, 10305 Raystown Road, Huntingdon. Organized by Valley REC's Health and Wellness Committee, which has raised more than $150,000 for charities since 2010, the outing will benefit two area residents, Sawyer Werner and Heather Irvin.
Six-year-old Sawyer Werner of Cass Township, Huntingdon County, was diagnosed with Wilms tumor, a kidney cancer, in February 2018, when he was midway through kindergarten. Since then he has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Sawyer, the son of Glenn and Megan Werner, has also received multiple blood transfusions.
Heather Irvin and her husband, Wayne, reside in Oneida Township, Huntingdon County, with their five children - Reagan, Kyara, Bentley, Ryker and Brianna. In August 2018, Heather was informed she had leukemia. Heather’s fight against the disease has included chemotherapy treatments and multiple bone marrow biopsies at UPMC Shadyside hospital in Pittsburgh.

Registration for the morning flight will start at 7 a.m. with tee-off at 8 a.m. Registration for the afternoon flight will start at 11:30 a.m. with tee-off at 1 p.m. A putting contest will take place all day.
