Hit the links in Bangor, for a day of golf, or make a donation to support the family of the late, Amanda Curry

Earlier this year on May 10th, the Bangor area lost a great woman, when Amanda Curry suddenly passed from a stroke at just 44 years of age.

She was a mom of two, a valued family member at High Tide in Brewer, and a friend to so many of us here in the community, myself included.

There has been an outpouring of sadness, love, and support for Amanda, over the last few months, from her many, many friends and colleagues, right here in the Greater Bangor area.

Thousands of dollars have been raised through various benefits held at High Tide and other local businesses, and coming up on September 23rd, you can get involved and make a donation as well.

The Curry Cup Fundraiser will take place on Saturday, September 23rd, at 9am, at Bangor Municipal Golf Course. The event is hosted by our friends at Carolina's Sports & Spirits.

Here is how it breaks down:

4-person teams. Individuals without a team will be paired up

To play, it is $50 per 9-holes, and $75 per 18-holes

They are also are still accepting sponsors and prize donations! It’s $100 for a sponsorship, and 100% of that goes to Amanda’s girls, as well as all extra money from the tourney. If you would like to be a sponsor of the event. you can find out more here

All proceeds will benefit Amanda's daughters

If you don't want to play and would still like to be involved, any and all donations would be greatly appreciated and accepted.
