Fallbrook Women Golfers Rally for the Cure
Last updated 4/12/2007 at Noon
On April 3 the Fallbrook Women Golfers participated in a tournament supporting the breast cancer awareness campaign Rally for the Cure organized by Golf for Women magazine. They have often participated, with this year being the most successful.
More than 75 local merchants, several golf courses and many individuals were very generous in contributing sponsorships, prizes, money and time, helping the ladies raise over $4,000. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure campaign for early detection of breast cancer is the beneficiary of these efforts.
The day was ablaze with pink attire, some teams in very creative costumes that set a festive atmosphere. Fallbrook Golf Club General Manager Beau Burross and golf pro/teacher Collins Tamashiro made themselves available to hit any participant’s drive – for a price. Their contributions were truly appreciated by all who benefited from those extra-long tee shots.
Lemonchello’s of Fallbrook and Temecula presented a fashion show after lunch, with 20 percent of the sales going to the cause. Members and friends of the golf club modeled the lovely garments.
The vast array of prizes was awarded by team achievement and drawings.
Several of the club’s active members have experienced the trauma of breast cancer. Their struggle and recovery was acknowledged with heartfelt congratulations on returning to the golfing community.
Those who worked diligently to make this a success were Dolly Harty, Marilyn Fine, Pat Clark and Jill Ouellette. The Fallbrook Niners prepared individual treat bags and gave financial support. Sue Reed and Megan Gamble created and sold CDs of significant songs. Some husbands and too many members to name provided additional help and support.
It was a hugely successful outcome to a delightful day.
