Since 2008, members of the Bill Dea family have hosted an annual golf tournament in his honor and in support of Western States Cancer Research NCORP. Bill Dea, a very special husband, dad, friend, and avid golfer passed away Labor Day Weekend, 1993 due to cancer. Being the generous and selfless man he was, Bill donated his body to help find a cure.
On the first anniversary of his passing, family and friends gathered for a round of golf in his memory. That simple round has grown into the annual Bill Dea Memorial Golf Tournament with over 100 hackers having a fun day honoring Bill and raising money for a cause near and dear to their hearts: Western States Cancer Research NCORP.
WSCR-NCORP is grateful to have received over $47,000.00 during the past eleven years of the tournament’s existence. Bill Dea and his family are true champions of cancer research and humble and worthy honorees of the Berris Award.
