The 2017 Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Pink Ribbon Ladies Golf Classic for Hope is in its second decade of caring, marking the 21st year we will be hosting our tournament. The fight against breast cancer and gynecological cancer continues, not only within the medical community but with the emotional support of the well being of women diagnosed with this devastating disease, at the CancerCare Manitoba Breast and Gyne Cancer Centre of Hope. That is why your support of our tournament is so crucial to the fight against women’s cancers.
All money raised through the annual tournament directly supports the CancerCare Manitoba Breast and Gyne Cancer Centre of Hope. We are proud to say to donors that not one cent of their donation is used to cover administrative expenses. Women and their families whose lives have been touched by women’s cancers can find assistance at CancerCare Manitoba Breast and Gyne Cancer Centre of Hope. By receiving up-to-date information, support and referral to programs, women can make informed decisions and gain increased control over their own quality of life concerns.
With the continued support of the Pink Ribbon Golf Classic, Hope maintains a specially trained, supervised team of “survivor” volunteers. These volunteers are linked with newly diagnosed women and provide support by sharing their experience of having “been there”. In addition, Hope supports a provincial network of community contact volunteers. These trained volunteers live in communities around Manitoba and can offer valuable assistance with accessing print materials and videos, local and provincial breast cancer services, and “survivor” programs in their home areas.
Women’s Golf & Breast Cancer
With one in nine women being diagnosed with breast cancer every year, it is a disease that affects every family and every organization in Canada, emotionally, physically or financially. There is a long standing relationship between women’s golf and breast cancer fundraising in North America. Breast Cancer is the official charity of the LPGA.
