2 Johns No Waiting is annual affair

The fourth annual 2 Johns Birthday Golf Classic is set for a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 22, at Sandhill Golf Course, 800 E. Euclid Ave. in DeLand.
This year's event is a benefit for Daniel Fernandez, a 22-year-old Volusia County resident who was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer and needs surgery and chemotherapy, according to the golf-tournament organizers.
Each year, DeLand residents John Cox and John Soety use their birthday celebrations as the impetus to raise money for a good cause.
The event includes the golf tournament in the morning, and a party starting at 1 p.m. afterward at Cafe da Vinci, 112 W. Georgia Ave. in Downtown DeLand, featuring food, fun and music. The organizers request no birthday presents.
Non-golfers are welcome to come for the party only. No admission will be charged, but donations will be collected. The 2 Johns event in 2012 raised about $9,000 for another local cancer patient.
Donations for the cause may be mailed or delivered to Janet Bollum at The Muse Book Shop, 112 S. Woodland Blvd., DeLand, FL 32720. Checks should be made payable to "2 Johns No Waiting."
Registration for the golf tournament costs $49 per golfer and includes the golf, contests, a T-shirt and a goody bag. Register online at www.2johnsnowaiting.com.
