LOCAL GOLF: Charity golf tournament to honor past member; Murphy notches hole in one at Sleepy Hollow

Posted

CLINTON — The Believe 271 Foundation will hold its charity golf tournament at the Skenandoa Golf Course in Clinton on July 31, to raise money to help volunteer firefighters with cancer and medical costs.

This will be the ninth golf tournament held by the organization. This year, it will be renamed to honor former treasurer Robert “Mr. Proceeds Man” LeBuis, who died last year. LeBuis was a member of the Barneveld Fire Department, and authorities said he was instrumental in guiding the foundation to become a not-for-profit.

The Believe 271 Foundation provides financial, social and educational support to volunteer firefighters and their families suffering from occupational cancer or life-threatening illness.  All proceeds from this golf tournament, and all fundraisers of Believe 271, stay local in Oneida and Herkimer counties, officials said.

Since its inception in 2014, the Foundation has awarded nearly $400,000 to volunteer firefighters in the two-county area.

Tee off will be at 10 a.m. on July 31, with a special opening ceremony honoring LeBuis at 9:30 a.m.
