Golf tourney to benefit Thane Hurst

A benefit golf tournament and silent auction for Thane Hurst will be July 25 at Hillsboro Municipal Golf Course.

Thane is the 15-year-old son of Tim and Ginger Hurst of Hillsboro, and an avid golfer, playing as a member of the Hillsboro High School team.

He was diagnosed in May with a rare form of spinal cancer. He already has had one surgery with another planned in the coming months. This fund-raiser will help the family offset expenses associated with the surgery.

The three-man scramble will begin at 8 a.m. Registration is $120 per team. Prizes will be awarded to winners. Lunch will be served following the tournament.

During and after the tournament, items will be on display in the clubhouse for a silent auction.

All proceeds will benefit the Hurst family.

For more information or to make a donation, call the Hillsboro Star Journal at (888) 382-2165.
