The 16th annual Celebration of Life Golf Tournament benefiting Michelle’s Place Breast Cancer Resource Center took place Friday, Aug. 25 at Temecula Creek Inn.

The annual event began in 2001 as a way to increase awareness of breast cancer and raise funds for Michelle’s Place — a nonprofit organization that provides support and resources to women battling the disease. The center also works to educate the community about breast cancer prevention and detection.

“We are honored to be part of an event that celebrates the courage and tenacity of Michelle Watson,” said Heather Petersen, CEO of National Merchants Association. “We hope our support will help further the emotional support and education that Michelle’s Place offers to the community.”

The tournament has been one of the Temecula Valley’s best-supported and attended golf tournaments for the past 15 years. This fun-filled day of golf features a putting contest before a shotgun start, plus several mini-competitions at various holes. After play, golfers enjoyed lunch, a silent auction, and awards and prizes for contest winners.
