---- — Cure Paralysis tourney hosted by Mullin

There are still openings for golfers for the 4th annual Thomas E. Smith Fight to Cure Paralysis Golf Tournament at Andover Country Club on Aug. 12.

The tourney is co-directed by Andover native Tucker Mullin, a recent graduate of St. Anselm who is now working in Manhattan as a finance executive. Mullin was named the winner of college hockey’s prestigious Hockey Humanitarian Award in April for his distinguished service to others.

The cost is $200 per person.

For more info, contact Mullin at 978-314-3020 or tucker@justcureparalysis.org.

Mullin’s organization recently donated $4,000 to Erica Predum of Fort Wayne, Ind. The 27-year-old mother of two was injured when she rolled her SUV on the highway. The grant will go toward her physical therapy.
