The event benefits Olympic Medical Center to pay for breast cancer detection and treatment for women in need on the Olympic Peninsula. This is the second year that the event was open to men, and turnout saw 62 players in all (including 18 men).

In all, more than $7,000 was raised thanks to the donations from participants, members of SWGA, SunLand Lady Niners,the sale of raffle baskets and the an anonymous donor who matched $1 for every $3 of the funds raised that matched last year’s total and $1 for $1 for any amount over that.

Following play was a luncheon where the keynote speaker Dr. Rene Zimmerman spoke about the latest trends in detecting breast cancer in both men and women.

After Dr. Zimmerman’s address, there were 19 baskets raffled off; baskets were donated by members of the two ladies golf clubs and a variety of local businesses. The grand prize — a $300 golf analysis and action plan that was donated by Anytime Fitness — was won by Cynthia Edel.
