On May 21, 2018, the Dave and Cheryl Rose Classic’s annual golf tournament was staged at Alpine Country Club. Ceremonial tee shots by Coach Rose, Governor Gary Herbert, Ty Detmer, and Bruce Summerhays launched the competition with a full complement of thirty-two teams representing Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University, Salt Lake Community College and many area corporations competing for the coveted “Huntsman Champions” Title. Summit Partners of Lehi, UT, last year’s champions, retained their title with a close win over Utah Valley University.
Sponsorship and participant donations exceeded $100,000. “This is exactly what we want to do,” says Coach. “We want to raise a lot of money and give it to the Huntsman Cancer Institute for research to eradicate cancer.” Truly an amazing day of golf in honor of all cancer patients and their loved ones.
Master of Ceremonies for the awards presentation was Wesley Ruff (KTVX-CH 4). The featured Speaker was Melanie Pearson Day former BYU Basketball Player and metastatic breast cancer patient at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Special guests for the event included Governor Gary Herbert, Dr. Saundra S. Buys (HCI), Ty Detmer (BYU), former Heisman Trophy Winner, Bruce Summerhays, PGA Professional & 3 times Champions Tour Winner, Brian Santiago (BYU), Chad Lewis (BYU), Bruce Brockbank (BYU), Todd Miller (BYU), Steve Anderson (UVU), Sue Nyhus (UVU), Keith Nellessen (NUVI), Eric Heiser (SLCC), Steve Karls (Culver’s) and many other distinguished guests from area corporations.
Committee volunteers make this possible by donating countless hours each year supporting the vision of Jon M. Huntsman Sr. in which he vowed to “Eradicate cancer from the face of the earth.” We are winning the War on Cancer.
