Colleton River Club is pleased to announce that we raised over $34,000 in our annual March Play for P.I.N.K. week. Bridge, Canasta, tennis, and golf events were held throughout the community as well as a silent auction and dinner to help raise funds for the worthy cause.
To speed advances in breast cancer detection, treatment and survivorship, Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate Diagnosis, New Technology, Knowledge) supports thousands of volunteers nationwide as they raise funds for research through sporting and lifestyle events. Their collective efforts raise $4.75 million annually — and 100% of that goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Colleton River Club looks forward to hosting this annual event that aids improving outcomes and uncovering new approaches to this complex, challenging disease. President, Myra J. Biblowit states “Play for P.I.N.K.’s continued support is critical to the grant-making capability of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We are extremely proud of our partnership and indebted to all that support us and believe in the cause.”
“We appreciate those who donated, worked and played, making Play for P.I.N.K. an incredible success,” said Tim Bakels, General Manager of Colleton River Club. “Many months of planning by CRC committee members and staff went into ensuring a smooth operation, and as usual the Members participation was excellent.”
