Lake Huron Foundation proudly hosts the 23rd Annual Pink Ribbon golf outing on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at Solitude Links Golf Club. Through the Pink Ribbon fund, Lake Huron Foundation remains committed to saving the lives of women in our community by encouraging women to take advantage of early detection and screening procedures when it comes to breast cancer. Funds raised from this event are used to provide advanced breast cancer screening and treatment for women in the community who lack health insurance and the financial resources to pay for their care.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide with 1.3 million new cases annually – 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in her lifetime. Though it remains the second leading cause of cancer related women deaths, there is hope and a 98 percent survival rate for women who are diagnosed early – early detection saves lives. Proceeds from this event will be utilized to provide early detection services or necessary treatment and supportive care to the most vulnerable women in our community. When someone is diagnosed with cancer, their entire family is diagnosed with cancer. To that end, we invite both women and men to participate in this year’s event to help raise awareness and provide support to women in our community who have faced or are currently facing a breast cancer diagnosis.
Golfers are invited to celebrate on the links with us for nine holes in a shotgun start, followed by lunch and vendor shopping, all funds raised through this outing will support the Pink Ribbon Fund through the Lake Huron Foundation. Golfers are also invited to participate in our Team Spirit cart decorating competition. There are no specific guidelines, so think pink and let your imagination run wild. Your participation in our Pink Ribbon Golf Outing extends far beyond a June morning on the golf course; you’re helping save the lives of the most vulnerable women in our community. Registration deadline is June 8, 2018.
