MENDOTA - The 11th Annual Tony Bonnell Memorial Golf Outing was held on Saturday, June 15 at Mendota Golf Club with 84 golfers participating. The outing was organized by the Road Runners team of the Relay for Life of Bureau County, which consists of team members Lynne Bonnell, Brad Bonnell, Steve and Renee Carlson, Travis and Lisa Moore, Lauren Koch, Angie Rush, Nikki Fischer, Jennifer Donnelly, Jennifer Phillips, Rachel Thompson, Becky Hoscheid, Shelley Dinges, and Allie Carlson.

The event was held in memory of Tony Bonnell, who died in September of 2002 of kidney cancer, and was dedicated this year to Michael “Nuco” Fonderoli, a relative and friend of the Road Runners team, who died in a snowmobile accident in January.

This year’s outing netted a profit of $4,030. With the support of area golfers, sponsors, family, and friends, the outings have raised $45,765 for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Bureau County.

The Road Runners team will participate in their 14th Relay for Life event on Friday, Aug. 2 at Hall High School in Spring Valley. All hole sponsors will have their golf outing signs displayed at the Road Runners team campsite.
