More than 300 members participated in the Play for P.I.N.K fundraiser to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Gleneagles Country Club, Delray Beach, Fla., hosted their annual Play for P.I.N.K fundraiser to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation on Monday, February 14, and Tuesday, February 15, 2011. More than 300 members participated in the two-day event this year.
Monday morning kicked off the two-day festivities with member-volunteers and committee members located throughout the clubhouse promoting the day’s events: an exciting silent auction and the boutique, which featured stylish jewelry, golf accessories, gift items, and Play for P.I.N.K. signature items in the main Clubhouse’s recently renovated lobby. The excitement continued on Tuesday with an exhilarating “Pink and White” scramble-format golf tournament on the Legends West and Victory East courses, followed by a decadent luncheon reception featuring speeches from breast cancer survivors. Meyer Grodetsky, a member of Gleneagles Country Club and one of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s most generous donors, presented a summary of research developments from the Foundation’s annual meeting to the audience. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office sent their Pink Patrol Car and honored all breast cancer survivors by giving them the opportunity to sign their name on the vehicle.
This year’s Play for P.I.N.K. committee has been planning the event for more than a year, and they are eagerly anticipating next year’s event. This year’s event brings the total contribution from Gleneagles Country Club to $500,000 since the event’s inception. One hundred percent of the proceeds from Play for P.I.N.K. events across the country go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
