Golfers Brave the Elements for 21st Annual Nelcorp Make-A-Wish Open

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. -

Over one hundred golfers teed off for a good cause at Traditions at the Glen in Johnson City, where the 21st annual Nelcorp Make-A-Wish Open was underway Monday. 

Participants played 18 holes of Captain and Crew and competed in course contests, including longest drive, putting, closest-to-the-pin, and hole-in-one. Lunch and raffles were also offered at the tournament. All proceeds from Monday's event support granting wishes for local children suffering from critical illnesses. 

Dinner following the tournament featured a presentation by 15-year-old Alexandra Bowen, local wish kid, who set sail on a Disney Cruise last spring for her wish. She shared her story and thanked attendees for their support.
