Grocers on the Green, Food for the Cure chip in $264,400 to fight kids’ cancer

Coborn’s, Inc. raised $186,000 at its 11th annual Grocers on the Green golf tournament on Sept. 12. The funds will support the pediatric cancer program at CentraCare Health Plaza and Coborn Cancer Center, which allows Central Minnesota children and families to stay close to home while receiving treatment. The funds also will partially fund two professional child-life specialists. To date, the event has raised nearly $1.4 million.

This past fall, Coborn’s and its vendors also raised $78,400 through its annual Food for the Cure promotion, which supports the Coborn Cancer Center.
