OCEAN CITY — Women golfers will tee it up on Oct. 19 at the Ocean City Golf Club for the 21st Annual Pink Ribbon Classic Golf Tournament.
This event is an all-women charity golf tournament hosted by the Maryland/Delaware Eastern Shore Chapter of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association, formerly the Executive Women’s Golf Association. All proceeds from the tournament go directly to the local American Cancer Society’s Making Strides against Breast Cancer programs. Funds raised support research, transportation to treatment through the local Road to Recovery program, housing at Hope Lodge for patients being treated away from home and information and support to patients and caregivers.
The chapter kicked off efforts for this worthy cause with a week-long Pink Ball event held in August. Eleven leagues participated and raised $4,835.
Past successes of the Pink Ribbon Classic have been made possible only through the generous support of sponsors, golfers and volunteers. Sponsorship opportunities and registration forms to play in the tournament are available online at www.lpgaamateurseshore.com.
