WCF Sponsors Wichita Festivals Golf Tournament in Memory of Bob Struble

Annual Golf Tournament To Benefit Cancer Organizations

The 2018 Bob Struble Memorial Golf Tournament, presented by Wichita Festivals, Inc. (WFI) will be held on Friday, September 7, 2018. This year, the proceeds will benefit The Hope Funds for Cancer Research and the Wichita Cancer Foundation (WCF). The charity benefit event began in 2005 in memory of Bob Struble, a long-time Riverfest volunteer and former WFI chairman. All of the proceeds given to the participating charities are donated in Bob’s memory to advance local cancer research and treatment. WCF is so appreciative to have been chosen as one of the charity recipients again this year.
