Dubel’s Cafe tees off for breast cancer scholarship fund
WEST HAVEN, Oct. 17, 2022 — (Pictured, from left): Dubel’s Golf Tournament organizers Katie Heffernan Farrell, Jo-Anne Hugendubel-Case, Beth Sabo and Laura Nelson join other tournament organizers and participants during a post-event reception in the backyard of Dubel’s Cafe at 260 Campbell Ave. on Friday.
Heffernan Farrell, Hugendubel-Case and Nelson are breast cancer survivors.
The annual tournament, co-chaired by Dubel’s owner Fred Hugendubel and Art Gilbert, raised $7,500 for the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program’s Susan A. Ruickoldt Scholarship Fund, said Sabo, the program’s chairwoman and the city’s commissioner of human resources.
The fund was founded in March 2003 in honor of Ruickoldt, who taught third grade at Savin Rock Community School before succumbing to breast cancer in 1997.
Each spring since 2003, a $2,000 check has been awarded in Ruickoldt’s memory to a female high school senior from West Haven who plans to continue her education.
