Golf tournament benefits breast cancer research

POSTED: June 30, 2009 4:30 p.m.

The Circle of Friends Team held a charity golf tournament at Chestatee Golf Club to benefit breast cancer research on June 8. The organization raised more than $5,000 dollars from the event.

  

All proceeds are donated to “It’s The Journey” Breast Cancer Walk to be held in Atlanta on Oct. 3-4.

  

All money raised will stay in the Atlanta Area, supporting grants for Breast Cancer research and support.           

  

The team recently held a Poker Run and will be conducting their annual Cowapalooza Cow Patty Bingo, later this summer.

The Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer has raised $5.5 million over the past six years and awarded 107 grants to local breast cancer organizations in the Atlanta area.

  

In 2009, the 2-Day has awarded a record $1 million to local breast cancer organizations providing diagnosis, education, support and research to thousands of Atlanta area women affected by the disease.

  

The goal of the organization is to give back at least 70 percent of the funds raised to provide awareness, education, mammograms, genetic testing and research, transportation, translation, patient advocacy and support services to thousands of women and their families in the local community.
