Rookies outing to help 3-year-old battling Leukemia

Avery “Bug” McCaskill has a winning smile. You wouldn’t know that she is in a battle with Leukemia.

Her mother, Sondra, said Avery was diagnosed in February at Naples Community Hospital North and transferred for treatment at Golisano Children’s Hospital in Fort Myers.

Sondra said Avery went into remission eight days after treatment began. She will continue treatment for two years.

Bruce Bell, owner of Rookies Bar & Grill on Marco Island, learned of Avery’s illness from Avery’s grandfather, Bruce Devlin.

“Our annual golf outing is about helping young people,” he said. “Our outing, the Michael Tudor Memorial Golf Tourney, began as a way to remember Michael who died of cancer at 18 years old, some 20 years ago.”

The outing to benefit Avery is on Sunday, June 23 at Lely Mustang.

To register to play, be a hole sponsor, or provide a raffle prize, call Rookies, 394-6400. Golfers can also register at the course at 730 a.m. on Sunday, with the shotgun scramble start at 8:30 a.m.
