WOMEN'S CANCER AWARENESS DAYS 2014

January 8th, 2014

We’ve all had friends and relatives that have been affected by Cancer. A great way to help against this horrible disease and conversely have fun with a lot of like-minded women is to participate in the 9th Annual Women’s Cancer Awareness Day.

What started as a small golf tournament now includes cards, shopping (I know my Mom will be there :), cocktail and auction, golf, bridge, croquet, tennis, spin, spin ride, splash and dash, and a 5K run.

Last year $210,000 was raised. Monies go to Scripps for Cancer Research.

Below is a schedule of events and contact information.  Get involved! You’ll have fun, meet some new friends and play a part an important part in fighting cancer.

Women's Cancer Awareness at PGA National 2013 | Photos of the Day!

March 6th, 2013

The one real bad stretch of weather we had unfortunately happened on the 8th annual PGA Women’s Cancer Awareness Day. Many women were forced in because of the freezing rain and I’m sorry if we missed your photos. We circled around 3 times to get as many as we could. All in all, $210,000 was raised to support post-doctoral fellowships in the department of cancer biology at Scripps Florida. Here is how it happened.

My young son, Sam, wanted to help out in the fight against cancer and joined Jason and me to capture the 8th Annual Cancer Awareness Day’s golfing events!

The day started out promising with lots of good morning breakfast eats.

So off to raise money and raise money they did. Over $210,000. WOW and a big applause to all who participated to help rid us of this awful disease!

Warm, dry & food!
