SO MUCH MORE THAN A TOURNAMENT
The 13th Annual Madison Area YMCA Charity Bocce Invitational, presented by Investors Bank and hosted by the Forum Club, is set to begin the week of September 8, 2014. Proceeds from the tournament benefit LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, our no-cost 12-week health and wellness program from cancer survivors, which is celebrating its first anniversary in September. For more information on the cancer survivors program, click here.
Team registrations are due by August 15, 2014. Reservations are held on a first come, first served basis. This tournament sells out! Major sponsors include Madison Honda, Rocco’s Tuscany Bar and Grill, Villa Rose Wine School and Technogym.
Adjacent to the Forum Club, the bocce court is situated in the main parking lot at the far end of the Madison Area YMCA, located at 111 Kings Road in Madison.
