A neighborhood golf tournament taking place later this month will once again benefit a local family who daughter suffers from a rare blood cell disorder.

The 5th Annual East Utica Classic Charity Golf Tournament will help raise money for 3-year old Kyla Heffron, whose family is from New Hartford. Kyla recently underwent a bone marrow transplant as she suffers from aplastic anemia, an autoimmune disease effecting her blood cells.

Rocco Cornacchia and Bryan Stamboly joined the Keeler in the Morning show to discuss annual outing and the need for more sponsors. There are still a few openings for golfers, too.

For more information call: (315) 601-4652 or visit: euclassic.com.  The tournament takes place Sunday, August 16, 2015 at Valley View Golf Course in Utica, New York.
