Beaumont Health breast cancer services will benefit from two golf tournaments celebrating their 25 anniversary June 12.
The women-only Women’s Health Care Classic will tee off at 9 a.m. Gross Ile Golf and Country Club, while the men’s and women’s Friends of the Women’s Healthcare Classic will tee off at 8 a.m. at the Dearborn Country Club.
Proceeds will benefit services at Beaumont hospitals in Dearborn, Taylor, Trenton and Wayne.
Costs for golf start at $250 at GIGCC and $1,250 at DCC. Sponsorship packages and tickets for golf and dinner are available. To find out more, purchase tickets, or become a sponsor, go to www.beaumont.org/giving/foundation-events.
Meals, cocktails, silent auction and awards also are part of the activities.
Delores Pfeffer of Grosse Ile, and Bob and Nancy Zakar of Dearborn are the 2017 event co-chairs.
“It’s an honor to help raise money to help women deal with the challenge of breast cancer,” Bob Zakar said. “Breast cancer touches so many. This event is really about women helping women and friends of women helping women.”
“The Women’s Health Care Classic began 25 years ago and I was there from the start,” Pfeffer said. “Even after all this time, the enthusiasm and participation of all the wonderful women and men who play and support our event never ceases to amaze me. Without these people our event could never help so many women in our area as they battled breast cancer.”
Beaumont’s Comprehensive Breast Care Program integrates cancer prevention, early detection, rapid diagnosis, leading-edge therapies, and a variety of support, education and community-support programs. Proceeds from this event will help those going through treatment with free mammograms, wigs, transportation and nurse navigation services.
“When you are dealing with breast cancer, a daily dose of inspiration makes a difference in our lives,” Nancy Zakar said. “That’s what the Women’s Health Care Classic does for us!”
GIGCC is at 9339 Bellevue Road, Grosse Ile Township; DCC is a 800 N. Military, Dearborn.
