Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., with tee-off at 1 p.m. Entry includes greens fee, box lunch, 19th hole barbecue, and silent auction. The cost for a golf foursome is $800.

"Tucson is the only Father''s Day Council chapter in the U.S. whose fundraising efforts directly benefit a local community organization - the Steele Center," says co-chair Cheri Romanoski. "We are proud of our partnership with the Steele Center at The University of Arizona and the dedicated physicians and scientists who are working hard to find new treatments - and someday a cure - for type 1 diabetes."
