Rally for the Cure golf tournament organizer Linda Danter said this year's tournament raised more than $40,150 dollars.

"We reached another new record and there are still a few more checks to come in," Danter said in an email. "Wow, what a community we live in."

The money from the tournament, which was held July 12 at Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club in Steamboat Springs, will be split between the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation and the locally organized Yampa Valley Breast Cancer Awareness Project.

This year, 204 golfers showed up to play in the tournament's two sessions, and there were 95 hole sponsors, 192 local merchants who provided items for the drawings and 128 that provided silent auction items.
