Golfers are wanted to join in the fun at the Fifth Annual 2nd Lt. Andrew Torres Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, June 22 at La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. Torres, a 23-year-old graduate of Palm Crest Elementary School, Flintridge Prep and Annapolis, lost a two-year battle with a rare form of liver cancer on April 3, 2004. He asked his parents and friends to help find a cure for the disease. Funds raised from the tournament go directly to Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), an independent medical research non-profit in Pasadena, which is respected and renowned for its groundbreaking work in cancer research and other debilitating diseases. To date, over $250,000 has been raised through past fundraising events
“Andrew believed it was important to support cancer research. This tournament is a labor of love for family and friends and it helps fulfill our promise to him,” said his father Leonard Torres.
