October is Breast Cancer month all over the country. Lake Oconee women join in raising the awareness of breast cancer by urging tests for early detection of breast cancer, and collecting funds for research to combat this disease which strikes mostly women. Many women may be unaware of screening, or forget to make it a part of their busy lives. Several events for Pink Ribbon month to call attention to this deadly disease will be held in the Lake Oconee area. In addition to efforts planned by churches and civic clubs, the ladies’ golf associations are planning golf fund-raisers to benefit cancer charities.
The Reynolds Plantation Ladies Golf Association is planning a special golf day to create awareness of the threat of breast cancer, and to raise money for the research to cure the cancers. Tuesday, October 14th is the day that the Reynolds Pink Ribbon Tournament will take place. Organizers will use the sale of remembrance tee signs, raffle tickets, and other fees to raise money to donate to the American Cancer Society.
Thursday, October 16th is the day for the Harbor Club Ladies Golf Association’s annual Pink Ribbon Tournament. Members and many outside players will play at Harbor Club and participate in collecting money to be donated to the Lydia Project. Raffle items donated by local businesses and individuals will be purchased by a ticket drawing after the festive lunch. Pink balloons will be set free in honor of those who lost their lives, and those who have survived women’s cancer.
Lake Oconee residents will join people all over the country during the month of October by wearing the Pink. This is an example of how the Lake Oconee LIfestyle is to donate time and money to charities. Join the Lake Oconee Ladies in honoring those affected by women’s cancer, and contributing to charities that try to conquer the disease that is part of so many lives.
Join this lifestyle here at Lake Oconee in which people often give back with time and money to help others.
